Radiology resident receives ARRS 2018 Certificate of Merit for educational exhibit

LeAnn Shannon, MD, a second-year diagnostic radiology resident at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) in Nashville, Tennessee, has been awarded the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) 2018 Certificate of Merit for her exhibit at the 118th ARRS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

The exhibit, “Histoplasmosis in the 21st century: new concepts of epidemiology, imaging, diagnosis and therapy,” focused on “the importance of considering histoplasmosis in the differential diagnosis of thoracic diseases, regardless of geographic location.”

Shannon said in a VUMC announcement that she “greatly enjoyed” attending the ARRS Annual Meeting.

“In addition to my presentation, I had the opportunity to attend several lectures spanning a variety of topics, all of which have helped me become more efficient in my search patterns and differentials, especially when time is of the essence while on call,” Shannon said.
