Winners of the Case of the Week for 2017 - Winners' list

Winners of the case of the week for 2017 - Winners' list
This is the 19th year that we are posting the list of winners. Overall 350 participants found at least one correct answer for our cases of the week this year. Many more people just looked and tried to solve our cases from time to time. Congratulations to all successful solvers! I would also like to thank all of those who had the generosity of their time to share their cases; would not be able to continue without those. 

This year aside of all those we usually congratulate for their efforts in answering the cases or providing them, and for all those who have made significant contributions to the Community (Azer, Alok, Rachna, Hector, Lech, Lilit, Emmanuel, Peter. and so many others). Also there is a truly impressive showing from the Azerbajani community this year !

Yet, there are 2 more persons that I would like to personally extend my gratitude:

Federico Badano and Moshe Bronstein

Federico has covered all the work of preparing the cases for (chasing information from authors, correcting English, translating from time to time, editing all the pictures and videos, posting the cases and answering the great bulk of the emails.) The position of Federico has been sponsored by a generous grant from SonoWorld.

At some point because of changes in banking regulation transferring his honorarium each month became tenuous and I worried I was not going to be able to pay him in time. When I mentioned that to him he replied with his usual humor: "Don’t worry, I will search for nutritious leaves in the forest near me!", Well it was very funny but still not what I was hoping. Things actually turned much worst, when I got note that SonoWorld was not longer going to be able to support his grant! I immediately informed him and I expected he would say "Thank you" and "Good bye". Not at all: Federico offered to work for free and has been doing ever since.

Federico is a young guy who has to develop his practice and his generosity in providing all this work is truly impressive. I had offered that we put a banner on the site to raise money for him but he even declined that. So, all of you who have rich friends or have a little extra money please click on the DONATION button on with the word Fede in the note line and it will all go to him. Thank you to Federico and all who will support him (incidentally for all those in the USA, is a 501c corporation, thus all donations are tax-deductible!)

    ¨I sit before the map of the world but not anyone…   The Peters Projection shows the countries in proportion to their relative sizes (the traditional map distorted the world to the advantage of the northern countries and southern areas appeared so small on it ). In a modern scientific age, the traditional map is no more compatible with objectivity. demonstrates with the same clarity that the knowledge is universal. Many thanks to all of you¨ Well done Philippe, Another year among the top winners, and thanks for your friendship!

Javier Cortejoso

  "People only see what they are prepared to see." Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American writer, philosopher and poet of the 19th century, affirmed this long before the scientific advances of the last century. has made a very good choice by selecting this quote.Your web page shows us many findings and pathology that we did not even know, some of which are not described in the best books of obstetric ultrasound. I see that for many of the winners of the case of the week browsing is one of their favourite hobbies, also for me. Thanks to all who make it possible.¨ Congratulations Javier!!!!   Andrew Averyanov 22 solved cases, Ukraine
