New investigators tie for award at the 2007 AIUM Annual Convention

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) announced the winner of the 2007 New Investigator Award at the 2007 AIUM Annual Convention in Washington, DC. The winners were Andrej Lyshchik, for his research project, "Quantification of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor-2 Expression Using Targeted Contrast-Enhanced High-Frequency Ultrasonography," and Monica Forbes, for her research project, "The Role of Inertial Cavitation in Producing Sonoporation."

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. This year, Forbes and Lyshchik tied for the award and each were presented with a prize of $500.

Seven nominees presented the following abstracts, and the winners were announced at the AIUM Leadership banquet.

  • Contralateral Lung Volumes Assessed by 3-Dimensional Ultrasonography in Fetuses With Isolated Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, Rodrigo Ruano

  • Preoperative Sonographic and Clinical Characteristics as Predictors of Ovarian Torsion, Libby Shadinger

  • Quantification of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor-2 Expression Using Targeted Contrast-Enhanced High-Frequency Ultrasonography, Andrej Lyshchik

  • Modeling of Nonlinear Propagation in a Tissue-Mimicking Liquid, Timothy Stiles

  • Testicular Epidermoid Cysts: Sonographic Features With Clinicopathologic Correlation, Maria Manning

  • The Role of Inertial Cavitation in Producing Sonoporation, Monica Forbes

  • Semiautomatic Measurement of Thermally Ablated Lesions in Sonoelastographic Images, Benjam
