Abstract. We prove that any bijective map between the positive definite cones of von Neumann algebras which preserves a certain unitarily invariant norm of a particular weighted geometric mean of elements is essentially (up to two-sided multiplication by an invertible positive element) equal to the restriction of a Jordan *-isomorphism between the algebras.
