Department of Urology, Thomas Jefferson University
Hello, my name is Joon Yau (JY) Leong, B.S. Hailing from Penang, Malaysia, I'm currently completing my medical education in Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia PA. As a rising 4th year medical student, I'm interested in pursuing a career and residency in urological surgery. As such, I have spent the past year in the Urology Scholar's Program at Jefferson Urology working with mentors in the field of urologic oncology. These mentors have encouraged critical, independent thinking and have shaped me to improve myself, both in terms of urologic knowledge and the art of being a physician.
Through collaborative teamwork with the department of radiology, we have also had the opportunity to utilize cutting-edge technology such as the superb microvascular imaging, a novel doppler ultrasound technique, to better characterize the vascularity within indeterminate renal masses. This prospective, pilot study has garnered much interest and it is our pleasure to present its preliminary data during the Next Frontier plenary session at the 2019 AUA annual meeting in Chicago.
