2023 Leaders on the Horizon Residents’ Program Winners

With support from Bracco Diagnostics Inc., Anderson Publishing, Ltd., publishers of Applied Radiology are pleased to announce the winners of the 2023 Leaders on the Horizon Radiology Residents’ program.  

Open to both international and U.S.-based radiology residents, Leaders on the Horizon aims to support continued education in radiology with an initiative designed to refine their scholarly research and writing skills, coupled with the opportunity to attend the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting and network with fellow residents, key opinion leaders, and industry representatives.  

For 2023, participating residents were invited to develop and submit a clinical research article and/or a clinical review article focusing on any imaging modality and/or topics related to medical imaging.  All submissions were reviewed by a designated committee of key opinion leaders in radiology, and the top three clinical research articles and the top three clinical review articles will be published in a special supplement to Applied Radiology in early 2024. Winning residents will receive special recognition at an honorary reception on Sunday, November 26, during RSNA 2023. There, each resident will receive a monetary scholarship award to support their continued education in the field of medical imaging.

Kieran Anderson, vice president and group publisher, Anderson Publishing, Ltd., states, “Applied Radiology is honored to meet these young radiology residents from around the globe who took part in this year’s program. We look forward to working with them now and into the future and we are very excited about celebrating with them at RSNA this year”.
