October 30, 2013 -- Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) - Radiology portal AuntMinnie.com today announced the winners of the 2013 edition of the Minnies, an annual event recognizing excellence in medical imaging.
Now in their 14th year, the Minnies awards provide a forum for radiology professionals to acknowledge the contributions of their peers to the field of medical imaging. Minnies candidates are nominated by AuntMinnie.com members and selected by a panel of experts in the field through two rounds of voting.
This year's Minnies winners highlight the importance of CT to radiology, with nearly a half-dozen of the 15 winners pertaining to this area of medical imaging. The increasing power of CT scanners is making new clinical indications such as coronary CT angiography possible, but it is also creating challenges such as the need to manage radiation dose more effectively.
The 15 Minnies categories range from Most Influential Radiology Researcher to Best New Radiology Device. The 2013 edition of the awards includes two new categories: Best Radiology Mobile App and Best Radiology Image, with the latter selected by voting on AuntMinnie.com's Facebook page.
