University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center research program manager Leila Kazemi received national recognition for her contributions to her field. Kazemi was awarded the 2024 Dr. Sydney Bonnick Award for Excellence in Densitometry by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) on April 4.

Densitometry is a procedure that measures the amount of bone minerals and density by passing X-rays with two different energy levels through the body. Kazemi began working in the field in 2010 as an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) technologist and clinical instructor at the UH Cancer Center.

“I am truly grateful and humbled to receive the 2024 Dr. Sydney Bonnick ISCD Award for Excellent in Densitometry,” said Kazemi. “Densitometry is a field that I am deeply enthusiastic about, and to be acknowledged for consistently exceeding expectations in my passion is incredibly rewarding. I strive to uphold the highest standards of quality and knowledge in everything I do, and it is gratifying to see those efforts recognized.”
