Preclinical Researchers Take A 'New Point Of View'

September 10, 2007 - For the fourth year in a row, Siemens Medical Solutions, Molecular Imaging Division presented the Preclinical Image of the Year Awards this weekend at the Siemens Preclinical User's Group Meeting, held in Providence, R.I.

The competitive awards are the company's way of honoring pioneering researchers and their contributions. This year's entries demonstrated how advanced preclinical imaging solutions may shed new light on disease processes and potential treatment pathways. Images were acquired on Siemens Medical Solutions preclinical imaging systems: the multimodality Inveon preclinical scanner and the microPET (positron emission tomography) and microCAT (computed axial tomography) scanners, which have been long-time industry leaders.

Preclinical PET Image of the Year:
"In vivo FDG-PET imaging of glucose uptake in pressure overloaded mice to evaluate metabolic mechanism and cardiac function during myocardial hypertrophy," Acquired by Bijoy K. Kundu, Stuart S. Berr, G. Paul Matherne and Amy R. Lankford from the University of Virginia.

Preclinical CT Image of the Year:
"Imaging and analysis for the assessment of the normal mouse lung," acquired by Eric A. Hoffman, Geoffrey McLennan, Joseph M. Reinhardt, Gary E. Christensen, Deokiee Chon, Eman Namati, Jacqueline Namati, Lijun Shi, Joo Hyun Song, Kunlin Cao and Jered Sieren from the University of Iowa.

Preclinical Multimodality Image of the Year:
"Adenovirus validation in lymph node metastasis," acquired by J. Burton, M. Johnson, D. Stout and L Wu from the University of California, Los Angeles, Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging.

Most Innovative Preclinical Image of the Year:
"Micro-array or MicroPET?" acquired by K. Gagnon and J. Sutcliffe from the University of California, Davis.
