Meet the 2023 American Roentgen Ray Society Resident/Fellows in Radiology

The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS), North America’s oldest radiological society, has announced the four 2023 winners of its ARRS Resident/Fellow in Radiology Awards, sponsored by The Roentgen Fund. 

Each year, the awards aim to highlight promising residents and fellows that represent the “next generation” of top radiologists helping to advance the science and practice of radiology through their research.  

Here are this year’s winners and the research topics that earned them their awards, according to the ARRS announcement

1. Elliot T. Varney, MD, the diagnostic radiology chief resident at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, is investigating modifiable imaging biomarkers of cardiometabolic disease, and has a strong interest in image-guided interventions and cancer imaging.

Vanney’s award-winning research is titled “MR Proton Density Fat Fraction Suitability for Fat Quantification Across the Spectrum of Normal to Severe Steatosis—A Prospective Comparative Analysis of Multiple Noninvasive Tests.”

2. Vincius Alves, MD, is a research fellow at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Alves focuses on clinical and translational pediatric imaging and will pursue a career in academic radiology. 

His award-winning research is titled “Lack of Speech Arrest During Cortical Stimulation in Patients With Brain Tumors Associated With Interhemispheric Reorganization of Functional Language Network.”

3. Luca Pasquini, MD, is currently completing his American Board of Radiology certification at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York city, combining research, neuroradiology and nuclear medicine training. He is also completing a PhD in neural plasticity at La Sapienza University of Rome. 

His award-winning research is titled “Prospective Characterization of Intestinal MRI Intravoxel Incoherent Motion in Patients.”

4. Pallavi Srivastava, MBBS, MPH, is a first-year radiology resident at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center whose research interests lie in healthcare disparities and brain aging. 

Her award-winning research is titled “Noninvasive Assessment of White Matter Tissue Microstructure Using Multishell Diffusion MRI in Preclinical and Prodromal Stages of Dementia.”  

The winners will present their research during the 2023 ARRS Annual Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii. This year, the conference presentations will also be available to watch online either live or on-demand.
