Andrew Quon, MD, assistant professor of radiology and chief of clinical PET/CT for the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS), and lead author of the study, "F18 NaF PET/CT of Cervical Spine Fixation Hardware," has received the Society of Nuclear Medicine's (SNM) 2011 Image of the Year Award. His image was selected from more than 1,800 studies presented at the 58th Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas.

Dr. Quon's 2011 Image of the Year illustrates the ability of positron emission tomography/computer tomography (PET/CT) scans to "identify abnormal bone reaction in patients who have received spinal fixation hardware implants" (from the June 6, 2011 SNM press release: "SNM 2011 Image of the Year: F-18-NaF PET/CT Evaluation of Cervical Spine Fixation Hardware").
