CINCINNATI – The Department of Radiology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and five of its members have been chosen among the Industry Top 10 by Medical Imaging magazine in its January 2006 issue.
"We wanted to find and acknowledge the best and the brightest in the field of radiology," Medical Imaging magazine writer Andi Lucas wrote in the January issue.
The Industry Top 10 is a ranking of the industry's 10 best in 10 categories chosen by radiology peers throughout the country. Of 16,000 Medical Imaging readers, 9.35 percent voted between October and November 2005. The ballot was created through a collaboration of suggestions among hospitals, vendors and the editorial advisory board of Medical Imaging magazine.
The Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging at Cincinnati Children's was voted fifth best radiology department within a hospital based on equipment offerings, patient care and outcomes, clinical research and staff. It was the only pediatric radiology department voted into the top 10.
