RSNA 2016 Just a Few Weeks Away

In just a few weeks, RSNA will return to Chicago for what is annually the biggest conference in the field and the largest annual medical meeting in the world. The 102nd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting will take place at McCormick Place from November 27 through December 2, and this year’s event is expected to have even more attendees than last year, according to information provided by the organization.

In addition to the reported 6% increase in registration, RSNA also reports that attendees have already booked more than 138,000 hotel nights in the city.

The meeting will kick off at 8:30 AM on Sunday, November 27 with the opening plenary session, “Digital Revolution in Radiology — The Good and the Bad.” The session will feature lectures from Keith J. Dreyer, DO, PhD, and Robert M. Wachter, MD. Other plenary sessions include “Healthcare Transformation: Driving Value Through Imaging,” scheduled for Monday, November 28 at 1:30 PM and “Beyond Imaging — Radiology of Tomorrow,” scheduled for Tuesday, November 29 at 1:30 PM. Honorary members will also be recognized at Monday’s plenary session, and gold medalists will be recognized prior to Tuesday’s session.

Along with the daily plenary sessions, more than 400 educational sessions will be presented over the course of the week, with themes ranging from breast imaging to policy changes to advances in technology.

“This year’s exciting educational course program reflects the enthusiasm and expertise of the Refresher Course Committee and is made possible by the tireless organizational efforts of RSNA staff,” according to John Eng, MD, chair of the RSNA Refresher Course Committee, in a press release.

Worth Repeating
“There is no question that we have come a long way in the detection and treatment of breast cancer. Mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI and newer technologies like digital tomosynthesis—sometimes called 3D mammography—help identify cancer at its earliest and most treatable stage. Image-guided and radiation therapy techniques have allowed us to manage and treat cancer more precisely and less invasively. We celebrate the International Day of Radiology only one day a year, but breast imaging saves lives every day.”

Mary C. Mahoney, MD, RSNA board liaison for publications and communications, as reported by RSNA
