November 25, 2018 -- CHICAGO - In this live video from RSNA 2018, Dr. Tessa Cook, PhD, of the University of Pennsylvania discusses how important it is to make new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) work within a radiologist's normal workflow for them to succeed.  Discuss
Future of radiology empowered by emerging technologies
November 25, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Radiology can once again situate itself at the center of patient care by embracing emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, RSNA 2018 President Dr. Vijay Rao said in her opening address. Radiologists must do their part to make this future a reality.  Discuss
DBT maintains high performance over time
November 25, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) maintains its high performance over time when it comes to decreasing recalls and increasing the cancer detection rate, compared with 2D mammography alone, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have found.  Discuss
AI could help avoid unnecessary thyroid nodule biopsies
November 25, 2018 -- CHICAGO - An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can accurately predict whether a thyroid nodule is malignant, potentially helping to reduce the number of unnecessary biopsies performed on these patients, according to research presented on Sunday at the RSNA meeting.  Discuss
Canon debuts MRI and vascular systems and AI for CT at RSNA
November 25, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Canon Medical Systems USA plans to highlight an artificial intelligence (AI) protocol for CT data reconstruction, a new premium 1.5-tesla MRI scanner, a high-end vascular imaging system, and a new line of midrange ultrasound systems at its first RSNA show after Canon rebranded Toshiba's medical imaging assets earlier in 2018.  Discuss
Siemens launches new MRI scanners in BioMatrix family
November 25, 2018 -- At this week's RSNA 2018 meeting, Siemens Healthineers is expanding the BioMatrix concept it launched in 2017 by introducing two new MRI scanners in the family: the Magnetom Lumina 3-tesla scanner and the Magnetom Altea 1.5-tesla system. Both bring the BioMatrix concept to more affordable price points than previous models.  Discuss
DTI-MRI offers window into Alzheimer's risk
November 21, 2018 -- Diffusion-tensor MRI (DTI-MRI) could become a valuable way to assess a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and rate of cognitive decline, according to a study being presented at the RSNA conference in Chicago.  Discuss
Screening mammography still good for older women
November 20, 2018 -- Women ages 75 and older should continue to undergo screening mammography if they are in good health, according to a study to be presented at the upcoming RSNA 2018 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
Shoulder ultrasound could help diagnose diabetes
November 19, 2018 -- Brightness on ultrasound in the shoulder's deltoid muscle could be an indicator of diabetes or prediabetes, according to a study being presented at the RSNA 2018 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
RSNA 2018 Scientific & Educational Presentations
November 8, 2018 -- Our final destination on the Road to RSNA is imaging informatics, and specifically PACS, cybersecurity, structured reporting, clinical decision support, radiation dose-monitoring software, analytics, and issues regarding patient access to radiology results.
November 7, 2018 -- Key presentations at RSNA 2018 will discuss how artificial intelligence is helping clinicians in a variety of uses for digital x-ray, from improving dose calculations and analyzing suspicious lung nodules to hastening imaging exams and the care of patients in emergency rooms.
November 6, 2018 -- The integration of advanced visualization tools into healthcare has grown exponentially in recent years. At RSNA 2018, researchers will describe the various clinical applications of tools such as virtual and augmented reality, 3D printing, and cinematic rendering in dozens of workshops, presentations, and refresher courses.
November 5, 2018 -- RSNA 2018 will highlight the new ways ultrasound is changing clinical practice. Hot topics at year's RSNA meeting include the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound and MR-guided focused ultrasound to diagnose different diseases, as well as the application of artificial intelligence in ultrasound imaging.
November 1, 2018 -- The scientific presentations focusing on CT at this year's RSNA conference speak to the modality's impressive resilience and continued development. Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, computer-aided detection (CAD), and updated protocols that are helping to reduce radiation dose, as well as the results from early studies of ultrahigh-resolution CT scanners, will be key topics discussed at the meeting.
October 31, 2018 -- Our Road to RSNA preview for the RSNA 2018 meeting in Chicago continues with MRI. Presentations at this year's conference will feature a range of hot topics, including artificial intelligence's impact on the modality, the issue of gadolinium-based contrast agents and also viable alternatives such as ferumoxytol, and PET/MRI's utilization in an increasing number of clinical applications.
October 30, 2018 -- Attendees of this year's RSNA meeting in Chicago will encounter a variety of studies on women's imaging topics, such as how digital breast tomosynthesis works in women with different backgrounds and types of breast tissue, ultrasound's role in breast cancer screening, the benefits of contrast-enhanced digital mammography, and how artificial intelligence can improve or enhance breast imaging.
October 29, 2018 -- Welcome to the first installment of this year's Road to RSNA preview of the RSNA 2018 meeting in Chicago. For the 10th year in a row, we're providing a modality-by-modality overview of selected scientific presentations to serve as your guide to events at McCormick Place.
