LAUREL, MD--The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) announced the winner of the 2006 New Investigator Award at the 2006 AIUM Annual Convention in Washington, DC. The winner was Elisa Konofagou, PhD, for her research project, "Feasibility of Treatment of Neurodegenerative Diseases Through Ultrasound-Induced Blood-Brain Barrier Opening In Vivo."
The New Investigator Award is designed to encourage new clinical investigators to gain experience with performing and presenting ultrasound research early in their academic careers. The award, with a prize of $1000, is presented each year to a new investigator (resident, fellow, faculty member, or sonographer in practice fewer than 5 years) who presents the best scientific abstract.
Seven nominees presented the following abstracts, and the winner was announced at the AIUM Leadership banquet.
- On the Impact of Vessel Size on the Threshold of Bubble Collapse, Elisabetta Sassaroli
- Prospective Evaluation of Intraplacental and Umbilical Vascular Flow by Color Doppler in Normal Birth Weight and Fetal Growth-Restricted Term Pregnancies, Annie Ouellet
- Noninvasive Measurement of Bone Strain Using Ultrasound Wave Propagation and Pulsed Phase Locked Loop, Yixian Qin
- Quantitative Ultrasound Predicts Cervical Ripening, Barbara McFarlin
- Feasibility of Treatment of Neurodegenerative Diseases Through Ultrasound-Induced Blood-Brain Barrier Opening In Vivo, Elisa Konofagou
- Ultrasonographic Evaluation of the Ulnar Nerve, Hae Shin
- Tissue Doppler Imaging is a Novel and Reproducible Method for Defining the Arterial Distension Waveform and Calculating Indices for Arterial Elasticity, Martin Claridge
Congratulations to Dr Konofagou and the other nominees on a job well-done!
