Scientific & Educational Presentations
November 10, 2016 -- Presentations at RSNA 2016 will highlight the potential of molecular imaging to advance healthcare in the coming years. The development of novel radiotracers to explore neurodegenerative conditions, the convergence of PET with MRI, and maturing applications in PET and PET/CT continue to guide a wide range of clinical applications.
November 9, 2016 -- At this year's RSNA 2016 meeting, attendees will hear how machine learning could be incorporated into women's imaging, perhaps by improving clinicians' ability to assess a woman's breast cancer risk or even by reducing unnecessary biopsies. Presentations will also cover the use of digital tomosynthesis, MRI, and ultrasound for breast cancer detection, and hot topics include breast density, personalized screening, and the debate over mammography screening.
November 8, 2016 -- The brave new world of advanced visualization, 3D and 4D, and computer-aided detection (CAD) will be on display at RSNA 2016. This year's sessions and courses will cover the evolution of digital visualization and detection tools and the rise of artificial intelligence. Hot topics include 4D flow and imaging, radiogenomics mapping, and 3D printing.
November 7, 2016 -- This Road to RSNA preview takes a look at RSNA 2016's presentations on healthcare IT. Radiation dose monitoring will again be an important area of emphasis at this year's meeting. Investigators are also continuing to seek enhancements in areas related to radiology reporting and clinical decision support.
November 3, 2016 -- Once again at this year's annual meeting of RSNA, researchers and clinicians will offer a myriad of studies and poster presentations to show how they are continually tweaking, expanding, and experimenting with MRI to explore beyond current clinical boundaries.
November 2, 2016 -- At the upcoming RSNA 2016 meeting in Chicago, key themes this year will include how ultrasound can help clinicians make better staging or treatment plans, distinguish between benign and malignant lesions, and track healing. Researchers will discuss the use of telerobotic ultrasound to perform abdominal exams, ultrasound tomography for breast imaging, and more.
November 1, 2016 -- At RSNA 2016, CT will mark another year of progress in grabbing useful information from anatomy scanned at ever-lower radiation doses. Spectral imaging, iodine imaging, k-edge imaging, photon-counting CT, iterative reconstruction, and other quantitative imaging techniques are on display in this year's sessions, offering new ways to see data hidden inside images.
