Sheffield medic wins young researcher award

Royal Hallamshire Hospital specialist registrar Dr Michael Paddock.

Specialist registrar Dr Michael Paddock has received the Young Researcher Award for Best Scientific Paper at the International Paediatric Radiology congress in Chicago for a paper entitled ‘What is the value of spine, hand, and feet radiographs as part of the skeletal survey for diagnosing suspected physical child abuse?’

Dr Paddock, who is receiving advanced training in clinical radiology at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital said: “Not only was I able to present my work on an international platform, I was able to attend lectures in postgraduate paediatric radiology given by world leaders in paediatric imaging research.  I am a strong believer that academic success should not be hindered by financial circumstances, and I am incredibly grateful for the Sir Ernest Finch travelling fellowship without which attendance at this conference would not have been possible.  The award will help to attract further grant funding towards future research in paediatric radiology, specifically the imaging of suspected physical child abuse, an area I hope to develop as part of my doctorate.”
