Top 5 trends from RSNA 2017 in Chicago
December 13, 2017 -- Sometimes it's hard to come up with a theme for a given RSNA conference, but in 2017 it's easy -- talk of artificial intelligence (AI) dominated the discussion at RSNA 2017. Attendees stuffed lectures on AI to the point where people were turned away from crowded rooms, while vendors took advantage of heightened interest to make claims about AI-powered products that sometimes strained credulity.  Discuss
CCTA readings differ between core labs and local sites
December 4, 2017 -- When coronary CT angiography (CCTA) images are viewed at a core laboratory, the chance of a stenosis being identified as significant is less than when readers at the local institution look at the same scans of patients with stable chest pain, researchers reported at RSNA 2017 last week.  Discuss
Video from RSNA 2017: New MagnetVision app helps assess MRI energy fields
December 1, 2017 -- CHICAGO - When it comes to MRI safety, wouldn't it be great if you knew exactly where the magnetic fields are strongest when you're scanning patients? Well, now there's an app for that. Dr. Emanuel Kanal of the University of Pittsburgh talks about his new MagnetVision app in a video interview from RSNA 2017.  Discuss
3D-printed prosthetics improve surgery for hearing loss
December 1, 2017 -- Using customized 3D-printed middle ear prosthetics can improve the accuracy of surgical intervention in patients with conductive hearing loss, according to a study presented this week at the RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
Machine learning can help predict KRAS mutation status
November 30, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Machine learning and quantitative MRI features can assist in predicting the KRAS mutation status of tumors in patients with metastatic colon cancer, according to research presented on Wednesday at the RSNA 2017 meeting.  Discuss
Radiologists now use CCTA more than cardiologists do
November 30, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Cardiologists have long contended the management of cardiac imaging by radiologists, including the use of coronary CT angiography (CCTA). However, a study presented on Thursday at RSNA 2017 revealed that radiologists now perform CCTA more frequently than cardiologists do.  Discuss
The 2017 PACSman Awards: Old MacDonald had a farm -- AI, AI, oh
November 30, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Anywhere you saw a crowd of people at this year's RSNA meeting, you knew there was a demo or presentation on artificial intelligence (AI), says Michael J. Cannavo, aka the PACSman. He offers his take on the meeting and some of the hits and misses in his ever-popular PACSman Awards.  Discuss
Use rates of diagnostic imaging on the rise
November 30, 2017 -- CHICAGO - After years of steady decline, use rates for noninvasive diagnostic imaging have begun to rise again, according to research presented this week at the RSNA 2017 conference.  Discuss
Video from RSNA 2017: New program promotes quality in radiology
November 30, 2017 -- CHICAGO - With its big, expensive scanners that can cost millions of dollars, radiology is a frequent target of efforts to reduce unnecessary healthcare costs. But what if radiology learned to police itself? Dr. Pamela Johnson of Johns Hopkins University and Dr. Yoshimi Anzai of the University of Utah discuss their efforts to promote quality in radiology by reducing unnecessary imaging  Discuss
Iterative recon halves CT radiation dose for calcium score
November 30, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Applying iterative reconstruction to CT scans enabled the acquisition of coronary artery calcium scores that were just as accurate as those from a standard protocol but with half the radiation dose, according to a study presented on Wednesday at RSNA 2017.  Discuss
RSNA 2017 Scientific & Educational Presentations
November 13, 2017 -- Radiography is medical imaging's first modality, but over a century after its discovery it's still going strong, with new technologies and clinical applications giving x-ray a renewed sense of vibrancy. At RSNA 2017, one of the most exciting technologies will be artificial intelligence.
November 9, 2017 -- RSNA 2017 might be remembered as the annual meeting when women's imaging took a quantum leap forward with the burgeoning utilization of artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, and computer-aided detection/diagnosis.
November 8, 2017 -- RSNA 2017 is almost here, and considering all the developments in advanced visualization that have taken place this past year, the timing couldn't be better. Numerous workshops, courses, and presentations in McCormick Place will cover the basics of 3D printing and how to incorporate it into medical practice.
November 7, 2017 -- At the upcoming RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago, you'll hear variations on the key theme of how ultrasound in its various forms helps clinicians diagnose disease, stage treatment, and track healing. Technologies under discussion will range from shear-wave elastography and contrast-enhanced ultrasound to MRI-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound, just to name a few.
November 6, 2017 -- Our next destination on the Road to RSNA is a stop in artificial intelligence (AI) for a preview of this year's presentations on AI in medical imaging, including machine learning, deep learning, and computer-aided detection/diagnosis. If you thought AI had taken off at RSNA 2016, you haven't seen anything yet.
November 2, 2017 -- At RSNA 2017, researchers are highlighting the most advanced CT methods to refine diagnoses, track diseases, and even predict the onset of adverse events. The unending pursuit of CT image quality will be one of the key themes of this year's conference.
November 1, 2017 -- MRI might be considered a mature modality, but researchers and clinicians are constantly exploring new avenues for the decades-old imaging technology. RSNA 2017 will feature presentations on multiparametric MRI, hybrid multidimensional MRI, and new sequences for metal artifact reduction.
