Hillel S. Maresky, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, and Angela Udongwo, a third-year student at the Katz School of Medicine, participated in a live interview with FOX29’s “Good Day Philadelphia” on their work on the lack of research on the radiologic appearance of Black hairstyles and how popular Black hairstyles like braids, twists, and locs appear on MRI, CT and X-ray. If a radiologist is unfamiliar with how Black hairstyles appear on radiologic imaging, it can lead to incorrect diagnoses which may require serious follow-up. Their research is focused on teaching radiologists and ED physicians about how Black hairstyles appear on scans.
