In addition to the public vote, winners of the Right Dose Excellence Award will be chosen by an international jury of experts for eight specialist categories, including vascular imaging, cardiology, neurology, oncology, and pediatrics.
In total, 197 medical practices and clinical institutions from all over the world participated in the contest, all of which use a CT scanner from the Siemens Somatom line. Each of the submitted images shows how users reduced dose.
This year there is also a special prize for sustainable dose management open to institutions who submit two or more cases and who also share their dose reduction experiences and strategies with other Siemens CT users, the company said.
The winners will be chosen by an international jury of experts, including members of the Sierra Initiative (Siemens Radiation Reduction Alliance). Those interested can vote for the 2013 public award for the best CT image at www.siemens.com/image-contest. The prizes will be presented in December at RSNA 2013 in Chicago.
