December 6, 2021 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) model can help diagnose difficult cases of buckle fractures in pediatric patients, according to research presented at RSNA 2021 in Chicago.  Discuss
The 2021 PACSman Awards: The Jack in the Box show
December 3, 2021 -- Although RSNA 2021 was a lot different than in years past, in some ways it was the best RSNA ever, according to imaging consultant Michael J. Cannavo. In this column, Cannavo shares his observations and doles out his annual PACSman Awards.  Discuss
New PET tracer detects lung tumors
December 3, 2021 -- An experimental PET radiotracer is safe and appears effective for detecting neuroendocrine tumors in patients with newly diagnosed or recurrent small cell lung cancer, according to research presented Thursday at RSNA 2021 in Chicago.  Discuss
Video from RSNA 2021: Regulatory changes for radiology in 2022
December 3, 2021 -- CHICAGO - What regulatory changes will affect radiology in 2022? We talked to Rebecca Farrington, chief revenue officer at coding and billing firm Healthcare Administrative Partners, about the changes that radiology professionals should know about in the coming year.  Discuss
AI can help mammography in middle-income countries
December 3, 2021 -- Middle-income countries could benefit from the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for breast screening to combat workforce shortages, according to research presented December 2 at the RSNA annual meeting.  Discuss
PET/MRI proves TNF blockers effective for ankylosing spondylitis
December 3, 2021 -- PET/MRI scans of ankylosing spondylitis patients show that tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers reduce the cellular bone activity driving the disease, according to research presented Thursday at RSNA 2021 in Chicago.  Discuss
Training helps novice CT readers identify interstitial lung disease
December 3, 2021 -- A short, pattern-based CT education module offered to general radiologists or novice readers improves their ability to spot interstitial lung disease -- a condition that is often difficult to diagnose, according to a presentation delivered November 30 at the RSNA meeting.  Discuss
November 24, 2021 -- MRI technology was launched into the world of imaging 50 years ago. In the decades since, the modality has become a key part of patient care. RSNA attendees will have numerous opportunities to learn about the benefits of MRI.
November 23, 2021 -- Presentations specific to COVID-19 are among the molecular imaging scientific sessions offered at RSNA 2021. Attendees will also enjoy research in oncologic and brain imaging, radionuclide therapy, PET radiopharmaceuticals, technical advances, and more.
November 22, 2021 -- Our next destination on the Road to RSNA is imaging informatics -- specifically, enterprise imaging, cybersecurity, structured reporting, clinical decision support, analytics, radiomics, and issues regarding patient access to radiology results.
November 18, 2021 -- CT is a dynamic imaging modality that's used for a range of applications and, thus, is a key part of the healthcare enterprise. At this year's RSNA meeting, CT will be featured in a variety of sessions that tackle everything from how to incorporate artificial intelligence into CT imaging to the development of new technologies such as photon-counting CT.
November 17, 2021 -- Experts suggest one reason digital x-ray is an attractive modality to researchers developing artificial intelligence models is that large patient datasets are more available than in other modalities. The chest radiographs used in data analysis for the studies we've highlighted in this Road to RSNA section alone number in the hundreds of thousands.
November 16, 2021 -- At RSNA 2021, attendees will have the chance to learn about new and improved ways to detect and diagnose breast cancers, screening methods that combine multiple imaging modalities, the role of artificial intelligence in reducing false positives and improving accuracy, the continued emergence of digital breast tomosynthesis, abbreviated breast MRI, and more.
November 15, 2021 -- Welcome to the first installment of this year's Road to RSNA preview of the RSNA 2021 meeting, which will return to McCormick Place after a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fittingly, our journey along the Road to RSNA begins with our preview of artificial intelligence.
