August 8, 2023 — The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) presented two winners of the 17th Annual Canon Young Investigator Awards (YIA) in cardiovascular computed tomography at its Annual Scientific Meeting (SCCT2023), held July 27 – 30 in Boston, Mass.
First runner-up is Alexander Te-Wei Shieh for his abstract, “Radiomics Analysis Of Sex-specific Differences In Pericoronary Adipose Tissue Extracted From Coronary Ct Angiography.”
“It’s an exciting time to review research from radiology residents and cardiology fellows in our field, especially as it continues to evolve and expand at such an exponential rate,” says co-chair of the YIA judging panel, Marcus Chen, MD.
“SCCT and Canon Medical Systems remain committed to supporting the research, writing and oral presentation skills of these future leaders. Dr. Huangfu’s presentation stood out to the judging panel because of its originality, execution and relevance to the cardiovascular CT community.”
