The author reflects on the Xenia Forsselliana Fund, which was created in 1941 through the money given in occasion during the 65th birthday celebration of radiologist Gösta Forssell. He says that the fund aims to promote research on radiology and has started to give awards in 1992. He discusses the article by Dr Stefan Walbom Harders solitary pulmonary nodules malignancy diagnosis through computed tomography (CT), which received the fund's Prize of Swedish krona (SEK)20,000 and a Diploma.
