November 19, 2010 -- This year's RSNA 2010 scientific sessions reflect the energy that is driving innovation in interventional radiology, with topics ranging from breast biopsy with 3D digital breast tomosynthesis to CT-guided cryoablation for kidney lesions to a novel fusion imaging system for ablation of liver tumors.
November 18, 2010 -- Meaningful use will be the focus of healthcare informatics at this years RSNA conference with key topics ranging from radiation dose monitoring and critical results reporting systems to structured reporting templates and decision-support software.
November 17, 2010 -- At last year's RSNA meeting, practice management and economics sessions focused on quality improvement. This year, the hot topics include radiation safety, decision modeling, and how to thrive the challenging economic times ahead.
November 16, 2010 -- Hybrid anatomical/functional imaging, the role of FDG, and the development of new molecular imaging agents will be among the overriding themes in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging at this year's RSNA meeting in Chicago.
November 15, 2010 -- The ever-increasing role that advanced visualization technologies play in today's radiology practice will be fully evident at this year's RSNA meeting in Chicago. Those seeking to keep up on the latest developments in 3D and computer-aided detection (CAD) will find a range of educational opportunities.
November 12, 2010 -- Ultrasound has a reputation as a portable, relatively cheap technology that frequently serves as a gateway to more powerful modalities. At this year's RSNA show, look for presentations that emphasize ultrasound's emerging potential in more advanced imaging.
November 11, 2010 -- At this year's RSNA conference, technical innovation leading to speed and image sharpness continue to make CT popular with radiologists and bean counters alike. Also look for vendors to demonstrate their efforts in reducing radiation dose delivered by the modality.
November 10, 2010 -- At this year's RSNA show, watch for presentations in women's imaging that explore ways to screen for breast cancer more effectively. There will be an emphasis on nuclear imaging technologies such as positron emission mammography (PEM), molecular breast imaging (MBI), and breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI).
November 9, 2010 -- MRI is expected to draw considerable attention on two main fronts at this year's RSNA meeting. One is in the realm of integrated PET/MRI, where Swiss researchers will demonstrate their work on a clinical prototype. The second is in the use of MRI for diagnosing Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive disorders.
November 8, 2010 -- If you're interested in PACS, this year's RSNA show promises to be a banner year. From hot new mobile devices like Apple's iPad to cloud-based computing, attendees to the PACS sessions in Chicago's McCormick Place will see how advances in computer technology are delivering benefits to radiology.
