During the MILabs Reception and Molecular Science Review held during the recently concluded Society of Nuclear Medicine meeting in Vancouver, Britisch Columbia, Canada MILabs announced the 2013 small animal Image of the Year Award. The awards were presented at the end of the inaugural “Highlight Lecture” delivered by MILabs Founder and CEO Dr. Frederik Beekman. In the lecture outstanding work from worldwide MILabs users was presented. The research shown was of such high quality that the jury decided to select three additional awards in the categories of Oncology, Cardiology and Neuroscience research.


The jury selected the work of Dr. John de Klerk et al. the Meander Clinic in Amersfoort The Netherlands entitled “From mice to a therapeutic human agent for bone metastases” as the MILabs Image of the Year 2013. The Jury was impressed to see how U-SPECT imaging of mice contributed to rapid implementation of a clinical cancer treatment, showing again that preclinical SPECT imaging can be highly translational and essential.  Dr. de Klerk is shown receiving the Award from Mr. Frank Schwahn, MIlabs Business Director North America. 2013_Imageoftheyear
 Muselaers The work of Dr. Muselaers et al. from the Radboud, Nijmegen titled “Monitoring 177Lutetium-anti-CAIX radioimmuno-therapy with 111In-anti-CAIX SPECT in an intraperitoneal clear cell renal cell carcinoma xenograft model” received the MILabs 2013 Oncology Research Award. Dr. Muselaers is shown receiving the award.
The work on dual isotope cardiac SPECT in mice with U-SPECT-II/CT entitled “Molecular imaging of angiogenesis after myocardial infarction by 111In-cNGR and 99mTc-MIBI dual-isotope ECG-gated myocardial SPECT” by Dr.  de Saint-Hubert and co-workers from University Medical Center Maastricht was rewarded the MILabs 2013 Cardiology Research Award. Prof. F. Mottaghy is shown receiving the award.  Mottaghy

The MILabs 2013 Neuroscience Research Award went to Dr. Philip Millet from the University of Geneva entitled “Quantification of benzodiazepine receptor concentration using a multi-injection procedure”. The work showed exciting imaging of tracers dynamics and displacement studies in the living rat brain.
