In recent years, the scientific community of researchers in OA imaging has increased exponentially.  Since its inception seven years ago, the IWOAI has provided a dedicated and interpersonal outlet for a wealth of clinical and imaging data to be communicated and promoted.  This has ultimately become a tremendous resource for all those involved in supporting OA imaging initiatives. 
It is an honor for the IWOAI to recognize those who have displayed clear excellence in the field sponsored by two of our top supporters.


Congratulations to our 2014 recipients!
