September 23, 2009 - Siemens announced today the sixth annual “New Point of View” Preclinical Image of the Year awards for cutting-edge images from pioneering preclinical research. Four category winners and four honorable mentions were announced, and the Image of the Year winner will be showcased in the company’s booth #416.
 
“We are honored to recognize the hard work and research efforts of our customers,” said Kirti Patel, vice president, Preclinical Solutions, Siemens Healthcare. "We believe there are tremendous advancements occurring in the preclinical research arena, and we are honored to help showcase this important work.” 
 
The “New Point of View” competition was open to anyone using a Siemens preclinical scanner. Researchers were encouraged to submit images created using any type of radiopharmaceutical tracer or any other contrast material. Entries were judged on scientific merit, the type of information gleaned from the images, and overall image quality. All images were judged by a panel of independent industry experts.
