See Possibilities Together

RSNA 2019 will delve into the possibilities of imaging by featuring an expanded artificial intelligence presence this yea

See Possibilities Together is the theme for the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) 105th 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 … and a whole lot more. The meeting will take place at Chicago’s McCormick Place Dec. 1-6, 2019.

RSNA 2019 will delve into the possibilities of imaging by featuring an expanded artificial intelligence presence this year. Debuting in a new, larger space on a lower level in the North Building, the showcase expansion allows RSNA to create a central hub of AI activities for RSNA attendees. “Many RSNA meeting attendees seek out AI subject matter,” said Steve Drew, RSNA assistant executive director of scientific assembly, informatics and corporate relations. “Creating an encompassing showcase on artificial intelligence for exhibitors, educators and researchers will create a dynamic environment for our attendees.”

Included in this AI destination area will be more than 100 companies focused on AI products and solutions, covering more than 40,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space. A larger open-air theater located in the center of the showcase will feature thirty-nine 20-minute vendor presentations on various AI topics throughout the week. The hands-on RSNA Deep Learning Classroom will offer 14 courses for practicing radiologists to help better understand the clinical relevance of AI. In addition, a new classroom will allow vendors to demonstrate their products in a hands-on environment, and a special exhibit will host a demonstration of emerging data technologies and the data standards that enable them.

Be sure to visit the ITN team in the South Hall, booth 3148. We will be featuring our various customizable comparison charts, as well 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 that you are seeing 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.

As we move into a new decade, the ITN team is looking forward to seeing many new possibilities together with you. We have some exciting plans in the works, including a major format change, and even more customizable electronic industry comparison charts — a free, ready-reference to assist with specifying, recommending and authorizing technology purchases.
We look forward to making new possibilities realities with you in 2020.

Semi-automatic lesion identification: (A) Manual ROI indication. In blue, it is possible to observe the axes that cross the lesion manually delineated by the radiologist on a plane of the MPR. The intensity of the lesion boundary (estimated) is represented with a red outline. (B) Additional axes can be dragged onto other orthogonal MPR views. From left to right, it is possible to observe the initial long axis outlined by the radiologist and the 2D contours on the axial, coronal and sagittal views of the lesion used as a starting point for the RPM algorithms. (C) Resulting 3D contour of the lesion (in blue).
