rsna

Este domingo 29 de noviembre empieza la reunión anual RSNA 2015 que organiza la propia RSNA (Sociedad Radiológica de NorteAmérica), y que justamente en esta edición celebra sus 101 años de existencia RSNA, por lo que han denominado ‘siglo II’ a muchas de sus actividades durante los 6 días de duración de su Programa.

Es posible afirmar que este evento es referencia mundial de la innovación en Radiología, y que McCormick Place en Chicago, EEUU, va a albergar las tendencias en Ciencia para la Radiología, Calidad, Excelencia en Investigación, y lo que la industria de la Radiología está integrando y puede asociar al workflow radiológico. En definitiva, un universo de Aprendizaje y Conexión para conocer y aplicar.

Inmersión en la RSNA 2015

Es posible conocer qué se está barruntando en la Innovación Radiológica al examinar el programa de una Reunión Anual RSNA, o también del ESR (Congreso Europeo de Radiología, que se celebra anualmente a primeros de marzo en Viena, Austria, y es la otra gran referencia internacional). En a RSNA 2015 hay previstos 6 días de programas educativos para Radiólogos, Oncólogos Radioterapeutas, Radiofísicos físicos en medicina, tecnólogos radiológicos y profesionales de la salud aliados

El interés en la vanguardia Radiológica puede clasificarse en subespecialidades clínicas, Tecnología Radiológica (equipos radiológicos, informática y redes, monitores, complementos para los procedimientos y las tareas radiológicas), Radioprotección y Dosimetría, y Atención centrada en el Paciente y nuevas aplicaciones (como citamos en el artículo Radiología Futura .

Asistencia on line

Es posible seguir las novedades en el espacio Novedades (news rooom) en el link https://www2.rsna.org/timssnet/media/rsna/newsroom2015.cfm y también es posible ‘asistir’ de forma virtual a las conferencias y realizar un recorrido virtual por los stands con una inscripción dentro de la sección http://www.rsna.org/virtual/

Y, por supuesto, seguir en twitter toda la actividad del evento usando el hashtag #RSNA15.

Información previa

Desde hace tiempo sigo diferentes publicaciones sobre la Business Radiology, y en esta ocasión es recomendable consultar la edición especial sobre la RSNA 2015 en Radiology Today
