14 papers submitted on the topic of Automated Whole Brain Tractography
The Cureus Journal of Medical Science today announced the winning articles in the Automated Whole Brain Tractography: Clinical Impact in Neurosurgery publishing competition, sponsored by Synaptive Medical. The articles were assessed based on highest Cureus SIQ™ score by an independent peer-reviewed panel
The winners are as follows:
- 1st place – $5,000 prize (7.34 SIQ): ‘Tractography for Optic Radiation Preservation in Transcortical Approaches to Intracerebral Lesions‘ – Agarwal, Malcolm, Pradilla, Barrow
- 2nd place – $3,000 prize (7.33 SIQ): ‘Diffusion Tensor Imaging for Ruptured Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation‘ – Waqas, Siddiqui, Mubarak, Enam
- 3rd place – $1,500 prize (6.96 SIQ): ‘Reconstruction of the Ascending Reticular Activating System with Diffusion Tensor Tractography in Patients with a Disorder of Consciousness after Traumatic Brain Injury‘ – Ordonez-Rubiano, Johnson, Enciso-Olivera et al.
“Synaptive joins the Cureus team in congratulating the winning authors and recognizing all the researchers who submitted articles to this competition,” says Cameron Piron, co-founder, president and chief strategy officer. “As the competition sponsor, we hoped to scientifically explore what happens when you move tractography generation from a labor intense process to one that is automated. We believe in fostering a wide range of academic research and discussion, and were encouraged by the depth and breadth of the community’s response to the topic. We would also like to thank the peer-review panel for their efforts in working with Cureus to adjudicate the competition.”
The Cureus team will contact each submitting author to arrange for award delivery. You can browse through the entire library of competition articles here. Papers using Synaptive technology are also listed in our Clinical Research section.
