Resident Research Day 2014 was an exciting and educational event, packed with imaging advancements and novel techniques. We congratulate each resident on their excellent research, and look forward to their future work. From screening for colon cancer, to using muscle size to determine surgical readiness, these residents work to advance the field of imaging and are proud to present their findings. Their presentations are listed below.
