Small hospitals lacking a key diagnostic technology—a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system—have the chance to win one in a new national contest sponsored by Siemens Medical Solutions, Malvern, Pa.

Videos made by contestants—small hospitals nationwide—are posted on a Web site created by Siemens. From Oct 22 through Dec 31, visitors to the site can rank the health care facilities based on merit.

Siemens will name the facility that received the largest number of votes in January, and donate a MAGNETOM Essenza scanner to the facility. The company recently introduced the system, which was developed specifically for the small hospital market.
