Week in review: Midlife belly fat and Alzheimer’s disease risk | MICI Q4 update | RSNA 2023

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

If you’re looking for some added motivation to drop a few pounds, our most highly-viewed article of the week could provide some extra inspiration.

In a study set to be presented at next week’s RSNA meeting in Chicago, researchers will reveal how people who have higher visceral abdominal fat in midlife may have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

You can access our preview article here or by visiting our RSNA 2023 RADcast.

In other news, the MarkeTech Group has updated its Medical Imaging Confidence Index (MICI) for the fourth quarter of 2023. Continuing recent trends, radiology administrators remain confident that diagnostic and interventional radiology will continue to grow as a profit center through the remainder of the year and beyond. But some headwinds may be on the horizon, according to the results. Click here for the full update.

Many in the radiology community are either on their way to Chicago or will be departing soon for RSNA 2023, which kicks off on Sunday. We’ll have a full editorial team on the ground at McCormick Place to cover the most important developments from the scientific program and the technical exhibits. Be sure to stop by our RSNA 2023 RADcast to get all of our daily updates.
