The mission for Radiology Grand Rounds is to provide an educational format which has a broad appeal to faculty and trainees. If you have any further questions regarding Radiology Grand Rounds, please contact Debbie Griffin at 919-684-7228.
Mentorship: Expanding the Definition and Goals
Mentorship plays a critical role in professional growth and should enhance career development, provide psychological support, coaching, and role modeling. During her talk, Dr. Jaffe will discuss the impact mentorship has on work culture and job satisfaction and address some of the limitations of traditional mentorships, processes to remedy those limitations, and thoughts about the future of mentorship in the Department of Radiology.
Starting a Silicon Valley Tech Company to Help Patients: The How, Why and What
Dr. Rusty Hofmann will share how physicians can leverage their experience in clinical practice to start a meaningful company. From the first steps of identifying the mission and founding the company to scaling the business. Dr. Hofmann will describe what Grand Rounds aims to achieve for its over 3.5 million covered members, demonstrated through a relevant patient case and walking through the patient and expert product experience. He will share how he started the company and the lessons he has learned along the way.
Building a Community Division: Our Experience
In 2014, Duke Radiology organized a Community Division based in Wake County. Three years later, the Community Division has nearly doubled in faculty with impressive interval volume growth. We will discuss the origins and initial goals ofthe Division. We will outline the Division’s operational model and compare it with those of other academic radiology departments. The Division’s successes and challenges to date will be reviewed. Our discussion will conclude with some thoughts on the future of Duke Radiology in Wake County.
Surgery in the American Civil War
This lecture explores the experiences of the more than 12,000 surgeons who served both sides in the American Civil War.It considers the reasons for greater Union success in caring for and curing their patients, and the many difficulties and triumphs of the men who served in this challenging medical environment.
Assessment of Liver Directed Interventional Oncology Therapy
Knowledge of post-treatment appearance of HCC using interventional oncology therapy is imperative to assess response but is often challenging. During this talk, Dr. Miller will discuss the imaging findings following ablation (RFA), and focus especially on transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and radioembolization. The limitations of traditional size (RECIST) criteria and the value of necrosis and diffusion weighted imaging will be discussed.
The Cost of Being Black: The Influence of Race on Health Disparities
Health disparities, as it pertains to race, has been identified in nearly every disease process ranging from asthma to heart disease.1,2 Research suggests that these disparities may be linked to patient determinants such as limited resources associated with socioeconomic status and poor health care education, but others point to a more disturbing condition within the medical community itself.3 That the presence of implicit and explicit bias within hospital walls contributes to the morbidity and mortality of the minority population.4 It is hoped that by discussing the history of race in medicine and acknowledging the continued impact of bias that we will be able to eliminate disparities for future generations through better education of staff delivering care. 1.Kaiser Family Foundation: Key Facts on Race, Ethnicity and Medical Care, 19992.Graham G.

Liver Fat Quantification Episode II - Translation of the Tech
Techniques for quantifying liver fat are becoming widely available, but clinically meaningful uses for this technology are still evolving. While not as helpful as once hoped for the diagnosis of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), liver fat quantification is a useful tool for assessing response to therapy in clinical trials, and this role may translate to clinical practice. Furthermore, reaching beyond simple fat quantification to characterizing the types of fatty acids in the body may provide deeper insight into an individual’s metabolic state.
