Michelle Moghadassi, MPH, Data Manager at the UCSF Radiology Outcomes Research Laboratory, placed 2nd for her poster presented at the American College of Epidemiology (ACE) annual meeting held in Washington DC from September 6-9, 2014.
The poster, co-authored by Rebecca Smith-Bindman, MD, entitled, "Computed Tomography Dose in Patients with Suspected Nephrolithiasis" was one out over a hundred presented.
