Decking the Halls at RSNA 2019

As usual, this year’s RSNA offers something for everyone. Interested in AI? Who isn’t? This year features an expanded AI Showcase area on the lower level of McCormick Place. And there will be plenty of sessions on the topic from industry demonstrations to educational forums. Of course, there will also be sessions dedicated to all of the major modalities, as well as a plethora of programs covering various aspects of radiology practice.

The plenary sessions are always illuminating, and this year’s Presidential Address by Valerie P. Jackson, MD, at the opening session is aptly titled “A Matter of Perspective: Putting a New Lens on Our Patient Interactions.” Also at the opening session, Abraham Verghese, MD, will deliver a lecture called “Finding the Caring in Care.”

Monday’s plenary session features New Horizons lectures from Andrew J. Saykin, PsyD, ABCN, and Robert M. Pascuzzi, MD. Saykin’s lecture is “The War on Alzheimer’s Disease: Neuroimaging, Biomarkers and Genetics on the Front Lines” and Pascuzzi’s is “Charcot, The Iron Horse, and Creeping Paralysis: Good Science in the Treatment of ALS.”

Worth Repeating
“Subjectivity is part of human nature. Sometimes radiologists might be fairly confident that there is no pathology in the analyzed case, but they choose to include inconclusive vague diagnosis statements to hedge against potential mistakes or legal threats. On the contrary, AI produces clear, unbiased reports that can help to reassure radiologists in their opinion. A combination of both produces clearer actionable reports to make treatment decisions, as well as helps to avoid unnecessary procedures resulting from evasive and noncommittal reports.”
