Dr. Torres continues to play an active role in education, research and clinical duties. His research focus is on gastrointestinal diseases and their diagnoses. In 2003, Dr. Torres participated in the examination of several mummies obtained by the Carlos Museum of Emory University. In the course of the examinations, one of the mummies was discovered to be that of Rameses the First; this mummy was subsequently returned to Egypt where it resides with others of their dynasty. The CT techniques used during the examination allowed examination of the mummified remains without harming the specimens themselves. Dr. Torres has been widely published and is working to influence the future of radiology at Emory.
