Our final stop on the Road to RSNA features a preview of Imaging Informatics content at RSNA 2022. Artificial intelligence (AI) may be the dominant theme at RSNA 2022, but there's more to imaging informatics than AI.

In Chicago, there will still be plenty of research and presentation on imaging informatics topics such as enterprise imaging, clinical decision support, multimedia radiology reporting, 3D printing, analytics, and augmented and virtual reality.

3D printing remains a popular area, and researchers will demonstrate, for example, that 3D-printed models are cost-effective and are being utilized in a variety of applications. Augmented reality also continues to show promise in medical imaging applications, such as helping to make CT exams less scary for pediatric patients and assisting in training, as well as in planning and conducting surgeries.

See below for previews of these and other imaging informatics-related scientific talks at this year's RSNA meeting. Of course, these are just a sample of the content planned for the meeting; many other scientific presentations, scientific posters, educational courses, and exhibits on imaging informatics topics also await those making the trip to the Windy City or attending virtually. For more information on those presentations and other abstracts, view the RSNA 2022 meeting program.

What's more, the RSNA 3D Printing Special Interest Group is inviting attendees to show off their 3D-printed models at their booth. In addition, the RSNA will also host a 3D Printing Symposium on Thursday, December 1, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. CST.

Consumer-grade displays show quality variances
Monday, November 28 | 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. | M3-SSIN02-1 | Room E350
Although relatively low-cost consumer-grade displays are diagnostically viable, they may require more technical support than medical-grade displays due to greater backlight drift and other quality variances, according to this scientific presentation.
Macros make it faster to create video reports
Monday, November 28 | 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. | M3-SSIN02-2 | Room E350
In this scientific presentation, researchers from NYU Langone Medical Center will describe how radiologists can create video radiology reports in less than a minute by using macros.
Radiologists create interactive reports over the long term
Monday, November 28 | 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. | M3-SSIN02-3 | Room E350
Once radiologists begin inserting hyperlinks for key image findings into their radiology reports, they continue to do so over the long term, according to this scientific presentation.
Large-scale assessment of 3D printing utilization finds time savings, varied use
Monday, November 28 | 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. | M3-SSIN02-4 | Room E350
In this scientific talk, researchers will provide their detailed analysis of the RSNA-American College of Radiology (ACR) 3D Printing Registry, including a report on how 3D printing technology is saving more than 35 minutes on average in the operating room or interventional suite.
Machine-learning model improves workload balance, fairness
Monday, November 28 | 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. | M3-SSIN02-5 | Room E350
A machine-learning model that estimates the difficulty of interpreting a study can improve fairness and workload balance, while helping to prevent cherry-picking of studies, according to this presentation.
How to find and address workflow challenges in implementing AI
Monday, November 28 | 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. | M3-SSIN02-6 | Room E350
In this talk, researchers will describe how they identified and addressed challenges to integrating radiology artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms into their clinical workflow.
3D-printed vasculature models are cost-effective
Monday, November 28 | 12:45 p.m.-1:15 p.m. | M5B-SPIR-3 | Learning Center -- IR DPS
3D-printed vasculature models are cost-effective for simulation and training, according to this scientific poster presentation.
Can CT exams be made more 'fun'?
Wednesday, November 30 | 9:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. | W2-QI-1 | Learning Center -- QI DPS
In this quality improvement report, researchers will highlight how augmented reality can improve children's experience with CT exams, making the scanning environment more playful, welcoming, and interactive.
Cloud-based software provides automatic inline image analysis
Wednesday, November 30 | 9:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. | W2-QI-7HC | Learning Center -- QI DPS
This scientific poster will showcase the high performance of a cloud-based software application for automatic inline analysis of images.
How useful is clinical decision-support software for CTPA orders?
Wednesday, November 30 | 9:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. | W2-SPER-1 | Learning Center -- ER DPS
Clinical decision-support (CDS) software may not lead to an improvement in diagnostic yield for CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) exams, according to this scientific poster.
Augmented reality in medical imaging for the medical metaverse
Thursday, December 1 | 9:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. | R5B-SPNR-8 | Learning Center -- NIR DPS
Augmented reality (AR) technologies in medical imaging may be used for brain tumor surgery planning and surgery, researchers will suggest in this poster presentation.
