Each year the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nuclear Medicine (ANZSNM) works to recognise and support excellence within the Australian Nuclear Medicine profession by offering awards for the best presentations accepted to the Annual Scientific Meeting. Six awards are on offer for the 2014 meeting:

Award Rules in Brief

Mallinckrodt Award for Nuclear Medicine Technologist

The aim of the Mallinckrodt Award is to foster the spirit of innovation and progress in nuclear medicine.

The Award will be provided for an oral scientific or technical paper presented by an accredited nuclear medicine technologist.

Entries will be considered on their value in improving knowledge in any aspect of nuclear medicine. While the study need not be totally original, considerable attention will be paid to the basic idea, to the individual effort and to the lack of dependence on non-technical aspects such as scan interpretation or clinical assessment. The fundamental requirements of any scientific paper, such as clarity of description of the studied problem in the context of published data, critical evaluation of results, utilisation of statistical or other relevant methodologies, as well as the presentation itself, will be taken into account. Acknowledgement of people or agencies that have contributed substantially to the work must the included.

A candidate for the Award must submit an abstract for the ASM as with any other paper. Submission of abstracts must be in accordance with the requirements of the ASM.

The Mallinckrodt Award is sponsored by Mallinckrodt. The award will consist of $1500 to assist you in attending a CPD activity of your choice.
