SCCT unveils new Young Investigator's Award for patient care innovation

Toshiba America Medical Systems : 07 May, 2007  (New Product)
The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) has introduced a new annual award programme focused on innovation in the field of patient care.
The Young Investigator's Award, sponsored by Toshiba America Medical Systems through an unrestricted educational grant, will be awarded to two physicians for their patient care research in the categories of clinical and technical cardiovascular CT.

This year's award recipients will be announced at the SCCT's second Annual Scientific Meeting 5 to 8 July 2007.

Each recipient will receive $2,500 and will have their manuscripts and abstracts published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, the official journal of the SCCT.

'Toshiba is honoured to support SCCT's Young Investigator's Award as part of our commitment to supporting education, patient care, training and technological innovation in the healthcare community', said Doug Ryan, senior director, CT Business Unit at Toshiba.

'We hope the SCCT's Young Investigator's Award will inspire young physicians to develop new ways to improve and enhance patient care in the field of cardiovascular CT'.

'As an industry organization committed to the advancement of cardiovascular CT, we are honoured to partner with Toshiba, a company we regard as a leader and purveyor of integrity in the field', explained Stephan Achenbach, MD, president of the SCCT.

The SCCT is now reviewing abstracts for the Young Investigator's Award in two categories - clinical and technical aspects of cardiac CT.
