October 29, 2014 -- Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) - Radiology portal AuntMinnie.com today announced the winners of the 2014 edition of the Minnies, an annual event recognizing excellence in medical imaging.
Now in their 15th 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.
Economic issues took the spotlight in this year's voting, with many winners reflecting the financial stresses that have been pervasive in radiology over the past decade. For example, the perception that medical imaging services have become a commodity was named the Biggest Threat to Radiology, while the ongoing slowdown in procedure volume was named the Most Significant News Event in Radiology.
The 15 Minnies categories range from Most Influential Radiology Researcher to Best New Radiology Device. The 2014 edition of the awards includes two new categories: Best Radiology Mobile App and Best Radiology Image, with the latter selected by votes on AuntMinnie.com's Facebook page.
The 15 categories are as follows:
