It was selected by a vote of the Journal’s Editor-in-Chief and Senior Editors.
Omid Nikoubashman recently received the Lucien Appel Prize for best research paper from the European Society of Neuroradiology Scientific Awards Committee. This honor was presented for his article “Prospective Hemorrhage Rates of Cerebral Cavernous Malformations in Children and Adolescents Based on MRI Appearance,” which appeared in the November 2015 issue of the American Journal of Neuroradiology.
Seven neuroradiologists comprised the ESNR Scientific Awards Committee, which evaluated submitted papers and determined the recipients of each prize. The members of this committee were Nadine Girard (France), Sven Haller (Switzerland), Marco Leonardi (Italy), Per Nakstad (Norway), Isil Saatci (Turkey), Joanna Wardlaw (UK), and Chairman Rüdiger von Kummer (Germany). Members based their ratings of each submission on the following criteria: 1) publication in a high-ranking scientific journal, 2) scientific integrity, 3) advances in knowledge, and 4) implications for patient care. Dr. Nikoubashman’s paper was among 5 submissions considered for the Lucien Appel Prize, and the committee’s decision was unanimous.
