Right Dose Image Contest (by Siemens)

Every year, Siemens organizes a Medical Imaging Contest. The idea is to obtain the best CT image with minimal dose. This contest doesn't focus only on image quality, but also on the dose, which is displayed in top of every image. There are always very nice images from different body parts and the competition this year is already open. Just take a look at the gallery. Of course, as it is organized by Siemens, the images have to be acquired with a scanner from the SOMATOM® Family and post-processed with syngo® software. Learn more about the challenge:
