On October 1, BME Graduate student Mallory Selzo who works in the lab of Dr. Caterina Gallippi at UNC-CH, won 3rd place in the student paper competition at the 2013 International Tissue Elasticity Conference in Lingfield, UK. Mallory was selected to be among eight finalists in the competition to give an oral presentation in a special session during the conference. At the conclusion of each presentation, judges assigned scores based on 1) Clarity of presentation, 2) Scientific quality of results, and 3) Importance, scope, and appropriateness of conclusion. BME congratulates Mallory on her award!
The goal of this scientific conference is to provide an international forum for the advancement of knowledge and methods for the measurement and imaging of the elastic attributes of soft tissues by ultrasound. The conference provides a unique and unified forum that brings together researchers from several countries and disciplines. It is expected that it will ultimately contribute to the rapid development and clinical introduction of this new medical imaging technology.
