A multidisciplinary study presented by NYUCD's endodontic residency program captured a major award at the April 2009 annual meeting of the American Association of Endodontists in the highly competitive area of resident research. NYUCD's submission, "Evaluation of Pathologists (Histopathology) and Radiologists (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) Differentiating Radicular Cysts from Granulomas," placed fifth out of 116 presentations. A paper based on the research has been submitted to the Journal of Endodontics.
Dr. Paul A. Rosenberg, Professor and Chair of the Quartararo Department of Endodontics, was the principal investigator on the study, which was presented by Dr. Jared C. Frisbie-Teel, a second-year endodontic resident. Other participants in the study included Dr. Jaehoon Lee, a former endodontic resident; Dr. Kyung Lee, a second-year endodontic resident; Dr. Herbert Frommer, Professor Emeritus of Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology, Radiology & Medicine; Dr. Shailesh Kottal, Clinical Assistant Professor of Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology, Radiology & Medicine; Dr. Joan Phelan, Professor and Chair of the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology, Radiology & Medicine; Dr. Louis Lin, Professor of Endodontics and Director of the Advanced Education Program in Endodontics; and Dr. Gene Fisch, Research Professor in the Department of Epidemiology & Health Promotion.
