Kenneth Neuhauser and Muna Alzahrani, MS, vascular sonography bachelor’s degree students in the Jefferson School of Health Professions Department of Radiologic Sciences, won Best Student Poster at the 2012 Society for Vascular Ultrasound Annual Conference in June.
“They worked very hard on this with very little faculty involvement,” says instructor and mentor Traci B. Fox, MS, RT(R), RDMS, RVT. “I am so proud that they achieved this national recognition.”
The poster topic was Congenital Portal Venous Aneurysm: A Case Study, and it featured the case of a 2-month old patient who was diagnosed with a prenatal gallbladder dilatation. An ultrasound of the liver revealed that a rare portal vein aneurysm had occurred. Laurence Needleman, MD, medical director of the vascular sonography program, supported and advised them on this case study.
