Right Dose Image Contest
The Siemens CT image contest is back. In June 2013, it will return as the “Right Dose Image Contest”.
Following the success of the image contests held over the past few years, Siemens Healthcare has decided once again to invite radiologists and radiographers from across the world to take part in the latest round of this international competition. Again a jury of experts, this time consisting of members of SIERRA - the Siemens Radiation Reduction Alliance - will choose in eight different categories the institutions who best demonstrate how they achieve images with the right dose for an ideal balance between diagnostic quality and low radiation. The categories are: cardiac, neuro, pediatrics, routine, trauma, vascular, oncology, and Dual Energy.
From June 2013, any clinical institution or hospital with a CT scanner from the SOMATOM® Family can once again submit their best images to be shown on the contest website.
A new element this year is the fact that sustainable dose management at the participating institution will also play a role in the evaluation of the images. Indeed, there will even be an additional prize awarded for the entrant with the best dose reduction strategy. “The many hundreds of submissions we’ve had in the past few years clearly demonstrate that our customers enjoy presenting their work to a global audience and having it discussed by a specialist community,” explains Peter Seitz, Vice President of CT Marketing.
So come back to this website soon to enjoy the best CT images and to learn how to participate.
