Success at the Society for Vascular Surgery’s Annual Meeting

Last week, Jon Matsumura, MD, vascular surgery fellow Donald Harris, MD, and undergraduate researchers Annalise Panthofer, BS, and Sydney Olson, BS, presented a poster at the Society for Vascular Surgery’s Annual Meeting. The presentation won its group competition and was selected to continue into the championship round. The project validated a novel technique for evaluating preoperative frailty using computed tomography. Sydney and Annalise have worked under Dr. Matsumura’s mentorship since 2015 in the AortaCore Aortic Imaging Lab.
