These grants were among the top-ranked and approved for funding by the R&E Board of Trustees. Applications are peer-reviewed by study sections modeled on those used by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Grant funding decisions are made by the RSNA Foundation's Board of Trustees based on amount of available funds for new grants, overall impact scores and programmatic balance.
