Scientific & Educational Presentations
November 12, 2015 --
This molecular imaging installment of the Road to RSNA 2015 previews a host of novel papers that use PET alone, PET/CT, and the pairing of PET and MRI to advance diagnostic imaging in the clinical setting. Presentations will feature their role in imaging Alzheimer's disease, a variety of oncologic applications, and more.

Women's imaging is a crucial part of healthcare around the world, and it is particularly unique because it makes use of such a variety of modalities. This fact will be obvious to RSNA 2015 attendees, as researchers discuss topics ranging from ways to use abbreviated MR protocols in high-risk screening programs to using dedicated breast CT for imaging microcalcifications.

RSNA 2015 is the culmination of a year of progress in advanced visualization, 3D, and computer-aided detection (CAD) technologies that shine a light on tasks that radiologists can now perform better, faster, and often more cheaply. Other hot topics at this year's conference include texture analysis, CT colonography, and 3D printing.
November 9, 2015 --
Our next destination on the Road to RSNA is a stop in healthcare IT for a preview of this year's presentations on reporting, critical results management, speech recognition, and radiation dose monitoring software, which is a particularly hot topic. Other presentations will explore the adoption of clinical decision support software and how HIT is being used to enhance radiologist education.
November 5, 2015 --
This installment of the Road to RSNA 2015 offers a preview to a plethora of studies that use different MRI techniques, as well as pair the modality with PET to further expand the technology's influence. Scientific papers scheduled for presentation in Chicago include studies on diffusion-weighted MRI to assess kidney disease, diffusion-tensor MRI for concussions, PET/MRI for breast cancer and other oncological applications, and many more topics.
November 4, 2015 --
At this year's RSNA 2015 meeting, a key theme for ultrasound is using the modality either in combination with other types of imaging or on its own to diagnose disease, predict its extent, or track treatment. Researchers will also address the use of elastography, ultrasound for gynecologic and breast applications, and other hot topics.

As RSNA 2015 turns a sprightly 101 this year, CT continues to pull tricks out of what always seems like its bottomless hat. In 2015, the all-purpose modality is doing its old tricks better than ever, and it's pulling off some new ones that hadn't seen much play before. Highlights this year include x-ray phase-contrast CT, an investigational photon-counting CT scanner, lung cancer screening, and new and improved iterative reconstruction techniques.

Welcome to the first installment of this year's Road to RSNA preview of the RSNA 2015 conference in Chicago. For the seventh year in a row, we're providing a modality-by-modality overview of the most important scientific sessions to serve as your guide to events at McCormick Place. Our journey along the Road to RSNA begins with our preview of Imaging Informatics, and specifically PACS, analytics, mobile devices, and image sharing.
