Congratulations to BME PhD student, Izabella Lipnharski, who earned two first place awards at the 2015 AAPM Spring Clinical Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri! This meeting is designed to help medical physicists integrate emerging technologies into the clinical environment.
Izabella earned a cash prize for winning first place in the Young Investigator Clinical Symposium for her presentation in “Quantifying Organ Dose and Improving Image Quality in CT Exams of Subjects with Metal Implants Utilizing a Metal-Artifact Reduction Algorithm”.
Izabella also earned first place in the Best Poster Competition for her presentation in “Correlating Image Quality and Reduced Radiation Exposure from Low-Dose CT Scanning in Lung Cancer Screening Program”.
Izabella is currently a graduate assistant working with BME Affiliate Faculty, Dr. Manuel Arreola, in the College of Medicine’s Department of Radiology. As a graduate assistant in diagnostic medical physics, the Department of Radiology generously covered Izabella’s travel expenses to attend the conference.
Great work, Izabella!
