2006-12-18-12 Winners of the case of the week for 2007 © Jeanty

Congratulations to the

Winners of the Case of the Week, 2007


This is the 9th annual award of the Winners of the case of the week. An amazing 383 participants found at least one correct answer from a pool of about 1200 people who just looked and tried from time to time. The chart below demonstrates the evolution of the number of respondents:

I"d like to thank to all of you who supported us with interesting cases and in particular to Dr. Fabrice Cuillier who, with his team :-) (see below), constantly keeps the highest score in sending of cases and images to us. Many thanks! 

I am constantly amazed by how much everyone knows. So often I post a case with the feeling that there is no way this case can be solved on a few images, and yet hours later we get the correct answer. There are really bright and dedicated people doing ultrasound and it is great privilege to be a small catalyst in this effort!

The following is the top winners among physicians.
