“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”
First, I would like to thank Dr. William O'Brien for taking the leap of faith in affording me the opportunity to guest edit this issue of the JAOCR. I greatly appreciate the potential he saw in me as a young staff radiologist. Also, thanks to Dr. Rocky Saenz who encouraged me to take on this project and contributed his knowledge and amazing cases for the large bowel wall thickening review article. Thanks, too, to my husband for being the first set of eyes on so many of my writing projects.
The first review article was borne from my experiences as a fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and is a summary of imaging findings seen in the setting of cirrhosis. I wrote this article with my co-fellow at the time, Megan Elgethun, M.D., and good friend and former co-resident, Matthew Tommack, D.O. The second review article, by Rocky Saenz, D.O., Julia Cameron-Morrison, D.O., Julia Hobson, D.O., and Sara Boyd, D.O., details the varied differential considerations of large bowel wall thickening. I feel both review articles offer an easily digestible summary of commonly seen findings in day-to-day radiology practices.
The residents of Beaumont Hospital-Botsford and Dearborn, MI, were instrumental in writing the case review and Viewbox articles. These articles offer a nice mix of GU and GI cases, with the first case review article outlining the differential considerations for pancreatic cystic lesions. This was written by myself, Stacy Ries, D.O., and Juliann Giese, D.O. The second case review article discusses unilateral renal enlargement and was authored by Joshua Similuk, D.O., and Chelsea Sheeler, D.O. The Viewbox articles cover pancreatic divisum, gonadal vein thrombosis, and acute cholecystitis.
The JAOCR has had a short but illustrious past thanks to the hard work of Dr. O'Brien, as well as the preceding guest editors and contributors. I am proud to be a part of the AOCR/JAOCR and am pleased to present this issueBack To Top
