Paldino receives Lucien Levey Best Research Article from AJNR

Texas Children’s neuroradiologist Dr. Michael Paldino received the 2017 Lucien Levy Best Research Article by the American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR).

In his article titled, “Brain Network Architecture and Global Intelligence in Children with Focal Epilepsy,” Paldino and his colleagues Drs. Wei Zhang and David Chu are working to translate quantitative imaging techniques for mapping the network of the human brain into clinical tools that will someday improve the care of children with epilepsy. Their work is helping to advance the mission of Texas Children’s as we lead with cutting-edge technology in the global community. Paldino is the first neuroradiologist at Texas Children’s to receive this prestigious award.

This award is named for the late AJNR senior editor who championed its establishment and recognizes the best original research paper accepted in 2016. Paldino’s award-winning paper was published electronically on October 13, 2016, and appeared in the February print issue.
