RSNA 2006 Stages the Changing Role of Radiology

As if RSNA wasn’t big enough, expect it to be even bigger this year. As the scope of radiology widens, so does the category of radiology subspecialties. RSNA 2006 has designed its program to reflect this change, adding to its curriculum important research across multiple radiology subspecialties – cardiac radiology, emergency radiology, neuroradiology, vascular and interventional radiology, breast/mammography, gastrointestinal radiology and genitourinary radiology, to name just a few. In light of molecular imaging’s tremendous potential for eradicating diseases — by revealing the early presence or likelihood of disease — molecular imaging will make its debut as a subspecialty area at this year’s RSNA.
Take note that the growing number of subspecialties is the precursor to the convergence of certain medical disciplines – principally radiology, pathology and cardiology – and manufacturers are poised to deliver new solutions for these anticipated developments.
Vendor participants at RSNA are also eager to show off their new product releases, many of which are inspired by growth areas in radiology, such as PET/CT and SPECT/CT hybrids, multislice CT, high channel MR, cardiac CT and MR, artificial intelligence and EMR/PACS solutions. Get a sneak peak at these in our extensive RSNA Preview in this issue.
The RSNA Scientific Program Committee is enthusiastic about this year’s presentations, which will introduce new approaches to fusion, perfusion/diffusion, multiplanar and dual energy imaging techniques, advancements in multislice CT, the explosion of cardiac CT, as well as novel CAD applications.
Imaging Technology News is looking forward to hitting the RSNA floor and seeing new technology in action. But we are especially interested in meeting our readers in person. So please stop by to see us at Booth #3915, or e-mail me to arrange a meeting in advance, [email protected].
See you at the show!
