November 18, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) may again be the darling of this year's RSNA meeting, but there's more to imaging informatics than AI, of course. Our final stop on this year's Road to RSNA preview takes a look at what to expect in enterprise imaging, clinical decision support, 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality, business analytics, patient portals, and other informatics topics.
November 17, 2020 -- The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted CT's usefulness as a diagnostic tool -- especially in the early days of the outbreak, when laboratory tests were scarce and results were delayed. Attendees at RSNA 2020 will learn about research demonstrating CT's efficacy in COVID-19 patients, as well as its use in cardiac imaging and other important areas.
November 16, 2020 -- A number of exciting women's imaging topics will be featured at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting, including developments in ultrasound screening and cutting-edge interventional techniques to treat breast malignancies.
November 12, 2020 -- In this most unusual of years, x-ray has once again demonstrated why it's still the most widely used medical imaging modality, some 125 years after that historic experiment in Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen's lab.
November 11, 2020 -- It's no secret that 2020 has been a challenging year, as healthcare providers around the world have attempted to cope with the global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. But MRI has shown its value throughout the crisis, and attendees of the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting will be sure to encounter research that highlights the modality's efficacy.
November 10, 2020 -- It's been a big year for ultrasound, and the presentations at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting are sure to continue that trend. The conference will cover a number of cutting-edge ultrasound topics, including the use of artificial intelligence and contrast-enhanced applications.
November 9, 2020 -- Welcome to the first installment of this year's Road to RSNA preview of the RSNA 2020 meeting.
