  • The Art of Imaging: Centennial Image Contest Winners

    February 01, 2015

    Medical images are the lifeblood of radiology. To highlight that point during RSNA's Centennial celebration, the RSNA community was invited to enter the RSNA Centennial Image Contest, submitting entries in three categories: Radiology Art, Most Unusual Case and Best Medical Image. The winning images are:

    Most Unusual Case

    “Stone Man Syndrome” by Andrei Purysko, M.D.

    This image illustrates a patient with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), a rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder and the most disabling condition of heterotopic (extraskeletal) ossification in humans. FOP was first described in 1692 by the French doctor Guy Patin and to date only 800 cases have been confirmed worldwide.

    Best Medical Image

    “The Hidden Wiring of Our Brain” by Marius de Groot, Ph.D.

    The brain of a 72-year old man, scanned as part of the Rotterdam Study investigating patterns of change with aging and neurodegeneration across different tract categories.

    Radiology Art

    “Frailejones Morados” by Javier Comas

    This artwork is created with radiographs subjected to computer processing, resulting in a unique form of expression. Radiographs: Fingers (the petals), arthroscopic meniscus (mountains) and angiography (stems and branches). For more information, go to www.javiercomas.es.

    Winning images were featured in a gallery in the Centennial Showcase at RSNA 2014. All images submitted for the contest can be viewed at RSNA.org/Centennial.
