Explore, Invent and Transform With ITN at RSNA 2017

ITN RSNA FastPass

Explore. Invent. Transform. This is the theme for the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) 103rd meeting and scientific assembly, and this year invites attendees to investigate and advance radiology through innovation as a means of creating positive impact on patient care. The meeting will take place at Chicago’s McCormick Place from Nov. 26 to Dec. 1, 2017.

Special Interest topics at RSNA 2017 will include dementia, the radiology experience from the patient’s perspective, translating quantitative imaging research to clinical practice, radiofrequency ablation in combination with immunotherapy, and the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound.

 

New This Year

At the 2017 annual meeting, RSNA will introduce a new Machine Learning Showcase on the exhibit floor. The Machine Learning Showcase, sponsored by Carestream Health, Google Cloud and Zebra Medical Vision, was designed to be a destination for attendees to connect with companies and see the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence software and products. It will provide unique opportunities to learn more about how these new technologies can help support their business practices.

If you want to learn more about exhibiting companies before hitting the show floor, ITN’s RSNA FastPass can help with your pre-show planning for the meeting. The FastPass can be found at www.rsnafastpass.com, and features many of the new systems and products being introduced on this year’s show floor. Some of these systems are also featured in this issue beginning on page 16 in the RSNA Show Preview section.

Also new at RSNA 2017 is the Fast 5 Session. This new session will feature five topics presented by five speakers in five minutes each. Topics being discussed will include each speaker’s unique ideas about topics that inspire them to explore, invent and transform medical imaging. The Fast 5 will take place on Thursday, Nov. 30, at 1:30 p.m.

Cyberattacks on healthcare institutions as well as data breaches regularly make headlines as various individuals and entities seek to use this information for their own personal gain. To date, providers of all specialties — including radiology — have had trouble defending themselves against these invasions, and they must improve if they hope to maintain the trust of their patients. To help people better understand what is needed to deter these attacks, RSNA has created a new cybersecurity session this year, developed by the Medical Imaging and Technical Alliance (MITA) with speakers from both MITA and the FDA. More information on cyberattacks can also be found in the article “Building a Cybersecurity Team in Radiology” on page 38 of this issue.

Be sure to visit the ITN team in the South Hall, booth 3206. We will be showcasing our recent editorial videos in the booth, as well as the October and November/December issues of ITN and much more. Our editorial team invites you to stop by the booth and chat with us about the new technologies and procedures that you are experiencing at RSNA. We’d also like to hear more about your interests, goals and concerns as we head into a new year. As a reader-driven publication, it is our ultimate goal to provide you with the information you need to remain competitive and informed in the industry ... we want your feedback.

The entire ITN team is looking forward to taking a look at future technologies … and delving into what lies beyond imaging. We will see you in Chicago!
