The Department of Diagnostic Radiology requires each resident to complete a research project during their residency. It can range from research that is presented at the local, state or national level. Research projects are ongoing and developing in multiple
subspecialty areas, providing the resident the opportunity to get involved in research in their area of interest.
- 2022 Accomplishments »
- Endless research opportunities with encouraging staff who are readily willing to mentor residents. In 2021 our department had 31 publications and presentations at national meetings around the country. We do expect our research publication and presentation
presentations to rise as we continue post-covid
- Residents who are interested participate in the Informatics Course each academic year
- Projects are mentored by staff and strongly supported by the department. The program allows five meeting days per year. Additional days (3 days/2 nights) are available for meeting presentations. The department helps fund presentation expenses
- The residency program supports residents interested in exploring academic medicine by sending residents each year to introductory academic radiology programs held at major national meetings
- Resident projects have been recognized with awards at various meetings each year
- In addition to the many interdepartmental research projects (such as with vascular surgery and urology), the close relationship with Oakland University (OU) has permitted an even more extensive network of associates. As an example, the association
with health economists at OU, has facilitated an ongoing project on the cost benefit analysis of an interventional procedure
- Our body imaging division has pioneered radiation dose reduction techniques among the institutions’ of this caliber in the country. Many publications have risen from our institution in this subject, some of which have been featured in public
- A collaborative work between our body imaging and interventional radiology divisions detected the root cause of displacement of power injectable PICC lines tip during CT contrast injection, which has not been known before. This work was published
by the American Journal of Radiology.
