Back on the Road to RSNA | Errors in pediatric radiography | Get out and vote

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

Our Road to RSNA preview of the scientific sessions at RSNA 2016 continues this week, with new sections on advanced visualization and healthcare IT.

In advanced visualization, hot topics range from specific applications such as using software to stage liver fibrosis on CT scans to broader issues like computer-aided detection for image analysis. And as seen at last year's RSNA meeting, there will be a plethora of presentations that educate and guide users in setting up their own 3D printing labs. Get the rest of the details by clicking here.

In healthcare IT, this year's meeting will see a number of presentations on using software for radiation dose monitoring. Radiology reporting will be another hot topic, with sessions addressing whether software can help radiologists deliver better service to patients. Learn more by clicking here.

Road to RSNA will continue through the rest of the week, so be sure to check back at rsna.auntminnie.com.

Errors in pediatric radiography

Despite major advances in medical imaging technology, sometimes the oldest modality -- radiography -- is still the best modality. That's especially true for pediatric imaging, where radiography's simplicity and low radiation dose make it an excellent first-line imaging tool.

There can be issues with pediatric radiography, however, and that's where a new article we're highlighting in our Digital X-Ray Community can help. The article describes some of the common conditions that can be visualized with radiography in children, assuming you know what to look for. Click here for more.

In other news in digital x-ray, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has released details on how it plans to implement a 20% reduction in payments for analog x-ray studies starting in 2017. Find out how they plan to do it by clicking here.
