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.
