May 14, 2018 — Imaging Technology News (ITN) was honored with a pair of National Bronze Azbee Awards for editorial excellence at the 2018 American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) Azbee Awards of Excellence banquet in Washington, D.C. Both ITN awards were in recognition of the efforts of Contributing Editor Greg Freiherr — in the Regular Column, Contributed category for Freiherr’s monthly column “The Last Read,” and in the Online Video News category for his Technology Report: Enterprise Imaging from the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting.
In the Technology Report: Enterprise Imaging 2016 video, Freiherr offers an overview of enterprise imaging advances from the RSNA 2016 show floor.
ITN and Freiherr were recognized in April with Regional Gold Azbee Awards in the same categories in the ASBPE Upper Midwest Region. ITN also received three other 2018 Regional Azbee Awards, including:
- Silver, Enterprise News Story — “Oncology Information Systems Need to Integrate”
- Bronze, Trade Show/Conference Coverage — RSNA 2017
- Bronze, Single Topic Coverage by a Team — “Comprehensive Coverage of Breast Imaging”
Sister publication Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology won the Azbee National Silver Award in the Online Blog - Analysis/Commentary category for Editor Dave Fornell’s 2017 blog series “Insights Into Cardiovascular Technology Advances.” DAIC was a Regional Silver Award winner in the Blog - Analysis/Commentary category, and a Regional Bronze winner in the Social Media Presence category.
