A Look at Tomorrow’s Radiology Today

RSNA Chicago, IL

Tomorrow’s Radiology Today. This is the theme for the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) 104th meeting and scientific assembly, and this year invites attendees to experience the hands-on, cutting-edge technology of artificial intelligence (AI), 3-D printing and virtual reality. The meeting will take place at Chicago’s McCormick Place Nov. 25-30, 2018.

During a video interview with RSNA President Vijay Rao, M.D., she said that artificial intelligence is by far the most impactful new technology in radiology and it will be one of the leading topics at the 2018 RSNA annual meeting. You can watch the video interview, “RSNA President Says Artificial Intelligence is Hottest Tech Advancement in Radiology,” at And, going with the theme, many sessions will focus on this important topic. You can browse the complete education schedule for the conference at

This year, attendees can discover special courses, events and features to enhance the meeting experience. At the RSNA/ESR Sports Imaging Symposium, upper extremity sports will be discussed, including Shoulder Injuries in the Throwing Athlete, Soft Tissue Wrist Injury in the Athlete, and an interactive case discussion. The special interest session on Imaging Cognition 2018: Addiction, will discuss Addiction in America, PET as a Tool in Investigating Addiction, fMRI in Addiction, MRS in Craving with a Focus on Alcoholism and a panel discussion. And, Deep Learning in Radiology: How Do We Do It? will discuss how deep learning is being applied in the radiology practice.
