Thank you for your interest in the first campaign of ISMRM’s MR Value Initiative! For this campaign, our goal is to identify areas where a new approach, using MR, can be used to answer a single diagnostic question as robustly as does the current standard of practice, but in a much more economical fashion. Our goal for this campaign, as with the initiative, is to make it much more than a contest. We plan to take the top entries, which will be presented at our 2017 annual meeting in Honolulu, and work with vendors and members to subsequently collect the data necessary to change the standard of practice, opening up the scope of MR in ways that are clinically meaningful and economically sustainable.
Submission Deadline: 09 November 2016 23:59 EST
What are we looking for? We ask that you look for applications with high impact – some combination of (1) common indications with (2) substantial impact on the patients’ quality of life or life expectancy, that currently require (3) expensive diagnoses and (4) for which the diagnostic information (in this case, the answer to the question) can have a positive impact on treatment and patient outcome. Not every entry will meet all of these criteria, but keep this in mind as you consider your submission.
This is a two-step process. Please read these instructions carefully.
