Imaging patterns predict gunshot injury readmission rates
November 27, 2019 -- Imaging findings from diagnostic imaging exams could help determine which patients with gunshot injuries are most likely to have future health complications and end up returning to the hospital for additional medical treatment, according to a study to be presented at RSNA 2019 in Chicago.  Discuss
Micro-CT unveils curious history of ancient manikins
November 27, 2019 -- Long before the advent of modern-day imaging modalities, clinicians used manikins to study medical anatomy. Researchers from Duke University will share how they used micro-CT to uncover the internal features and material composition of these human figurines in a presentation at the RSNA 2019 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
Biennial breast screening associated with advanced cancers
November 26, 2019 -- Women who are screened for breast cancer every two years have more advanced cancers -- as well as more cancers between screening rounds -- than those who are screened annually, according to a study to be presented next week at RSNA 2019 in Chicago. Those treated biennially also generally require more aggressive treatment.  Discuss
DTI-MRI links obesity to areas of white-matter damage
November 26, 2019 -- Diffusion-tensor MR images (DTI-MRI) have revealed signs of brain damage in the white matter of overweight children, which could be related to several key inflammatory markers, according to a study scheduled for presentation next week at RSNA 2019 in Chicago.  Discuss
Focused ultrasound treatment to brain relieves tremors
November 26, 2019 -- Applying treatments of MR-guided focused ultrasound to the brain can be an effective therapy for people with essential tremor, as well as tremor related to Parkinson's disease, according to a study to be presented at RSNA 2019 in Chicago.  Discuss
fMRI finds opioids may alter brain function in babies
November 26, 2019 -- Functional MRI (fMRI) has shown that prenatal exposure to opioids may alter brain function in babies, according to research scheduled to be presented at the upcoming RSNA 2019 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss

RSNA plans to cut Friday sessions starting in 2021
November 15, 2019 -- RSNA 2019 may be right around the corner, but the society has already announced the biggest changes to its meeting format in decades. As of RSNA 2021, the conference will end on Thursday and the technical exhibition will be cut from five days to four days.  Discuss
RSNA 2019 Scientific & Educational Presentations
November 14, 2019 -- Our final destination on the Road to RSNA is imaging informatics -- specifically PACS, cybersecurity, structured reporting, clinical decision support (CDS), analytics, and issues regarding patient access to radiology results. RSNA 2019 attendees can learn how to improve their radiology reports, the benefits of CDS for radiologists, ways informatics can help better communicate imaging results, and much more.
November 13, 2019 -- Digital radiography (DR) maintains its solid foundation of diagnostic support for imaging centers, emergency departments, outpatient clinics, and mobile operations worldwide. Presentations at RSNA 2019 will feature hot topics such as how DR will benefit from artificial intelligence, dark-field x-ray, hardware improvements in DR systems, and other key research findings.
November 12, 2019 -- From 3D printing to virtual and augmented reality, advanced visualization technologies continue making great strides in healthcare with each passing year. RSNA 2019 attendees will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss these developments in a number of scientific and educational presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops.
November 11, 2019 -- At this year's RSNA meeting, ultrasound's versatility will be on display via scientific presentations and posters, as well as refresher courses that will keep sonographers at the top of their game. Hot topics for RSNA 2019 include shear-wave elastography, contrast-enhanced ultrasound, automated breast ultrasound, and more.
November 7, 2019 -- The vast number of CT presentations at RSNA 2019 is a testament to the modality's resilience, its value, and its adaptability. This year's presentations will reaffirm the utility of tried-and-true imaging techniques and also feature relatively new technologies that have already begun reshaping the approach radiologists take to common clinical applications.
November 6, 2019 -- The diverse utility of MRI is endless, as evidenced in the wide range of clinical applications to be discussed in the scientific sessions of RSNA 2019. This year's meeting features presentations, posters, courses, and exhibits on topics such as imaging with field strengths that span from 0.55 tesla to 7 tesla, gadolinium-based contrast agents, safety in the MRI suite, and novel technologies such as MR elastography.
November 5, 2019 -- At RSNA 2019, attendees will have the opportunity to learn how artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming women's imaging, such as enhancing breast imaging, improving radiologists' workflow, and reducing recall rates with digital mammography.
