Registration is now open for the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 109th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, which will be held at McCormick Place Chicago from November 26-30. This year’s theme is Leading Through Change.
“Radiology has long led medicine in showing how we can embrace change by seeking innovation,” says RSNA President Matthew A. Mauro, MD. “Change will always be present in the practice of medicine, and the way we adapt to change will determine our success in the future.”
The RSNA 2023 plenary session programming focuses on navigating transformative change in healthcare. At the Opening Session, Mauro will take the stage to deliver his President’s Address, “Leading Through Change,” which will explore how radiology professionals can be intentional and proactive while guiding teams and organizations through change.
“In healthcare, we are not only experiencing change in the advances in medical science and technical innovations that are occurring with increasing frequency, but also in the many aspects of the delivery of healthcare—payment models, patient expectations, delivery systems, competition, and a challenging and changing labor market,” Mauro says. “But radiology is well poised to continue its leadership in moving health care forward across all of these domains.”
Also at the Opening Session, Howard Chrisman, MD, will present “History Never Repeats Itself, But It Does Often Rhyme.” Moreover, Vin Gupta, MD, will speak on November 28 on “The Future of Healthcare Delivery: Considerations for Patients and Providers,” and on November 29, Jocelyn Chertoff, MD, MS, will present “Understanding and Revitalizing the Radiology Workforce.”
The Image Interpretation Session, moderated by C. Douglas Phillips, MD, on November 27 will offer a cross-disciplinary opportunity for attendees to test their knowledge beyond their areas of expertise and follow along as a panel of experts identify abnormal findings critical to making accurate diagnoses and recommending additional studies or procedures.
Moreover, Julius Chapiro, MD, PhD, and Anna Shapiro, MD, will host “Oncology Imaging and Interventions: The Radiology Jeopardy,” a lively interactive game show experience, on Nov. 29. Also, the RSNA/AAPM Symposium: “Together We Can Make a Difference,” held on November 30, will focus on successful collaboration between radiologists and physicists in technical developments and clinical translations in medical imaging. Guang-Hong Chen, PhD, will moderate the symposium.
Popular sessions like Case of the Day and “Fast 5” will offer engaging experiences for attendees. The Discovery Theater will feature informative presentations and entertainment. The RSNA 2023 program delivers scientific sessions from every subspecialty, including Cutting-Edge sessions on hot topics in radiology research, and a comprehensive educational curriculum with a wide variety of CME opportunities for radiology professionals to advance in their specialties.
RSNA 2023 also offers the ultimate radiology show floor for demonstrating the latest medical imaging technologies in CT, MRI, artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing, and more. Currently, there are 574 confirmed exhibitors occupying more than 378,800 square feet of exhibit space.
Attendees can explore the expansive AI Showcase and Theater, sponsored by AIRS Medical and Bayer Calantic™ Digital Solutions. The AI Showcase, featuring the latest AI advances and applications, currently has 83 exhibitors occupying more than 30,300 square feet.
