This session also held the Best Polish NMR Publication 2011–2013 contest. The winning papers had the highest quotation number. First prize was awarded to Eftychia Koumarianou, Dariusz Pawlak, Agnieszka Korsak and Renata Mikołajczak for “Comparison of receptor affinity of natSc-DOTA-TATE versus natGa-DOTA-TATE”. Second prize went to Marek Ruchała, Ewelina Szczepanek and Jerzy Sowiński for “Diagnostic value of radionuclide scanning and ultrasonography in thyroid developmental anomaly imaging”, and third prize to Grażyna Łapińska, Małgorzata Bryszewska, Agnieszka Fijołek-Warszewska, Izabella Kozłowicz-Gudzińska, Paweł Ochman and Agata Sackiewicz-Słaby for “The diagnostic role of 68Ga-DOTA-TATE PET/CT in the detection of neuroendocrine tumours”.
