Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017

No matter what your area of interest, RSNA 2017 sessions have you covered. Choose from a wide array of educational courses, education exhibits, scientific sessions and posters in a range of subspecialties. View scientific posters and education exhibits in the Learning Center through Friday.

Virtual meeting registrants may also view posters and exhibits by logging on from in or outside McCormick Place.



RSNA Diagnosis Live™ Interactive and Mobile Device Integrated Audience Response: Tips, Tricks, and How to Get Started (Hands-on)

Tuesday 2:30–4:00 p.m.Room: S401CD

Attendees will discover the higher receptiveness of interactive content by learners compared with traditional didactic techniques and learn about the basic operational features of the Diagnosis Live audience participation interactive tool.



Understanding Genetics in Pediatric Neuroradiology

Wednesday, 12:45–1:15 p.m. Pediatric Community, Learning Center

Presenters offer an introduction to genetic and epigenetic mechanisms in neurologic diseases and discuss genotype phenotype correlation in inherited metabolic diseases and the role of MRI as a biomarker. Researchers will discuss using neuroimaging phenotypes to guide genetic analysis in CNS malformations including vascular malformations and posterior fossa malformations.



Equipment in the Global Radiology Environment: Why We Fail, How We Could Succeed (Sponsored by the Committee on International Radiology Education [CIRE])

Tuesday, 4:30-6:00 p.m. Room S014A

Presenters will discuss their experience with the expanding use of digital equipment in resource-limited countries, including data gathered from diverse international departments and from equipment vendors.



Deconstructing Tumors with Imaging

Wednesday, 8:30–10:00 a.m. Room S104B

Sessions include:

  • Imaging of Angiogenesis: What Do Vessels Tell Us about Tumors?
  • Multiparametric Imaging of Bone Marrow Metastatic Disease
  • Imaging Tumor Metabolism with Hyperpolarized MRI



Radiologist Peer-Review and Peer-Learning Options, Best Practices, and Future Directions

Wednesday, 8:30–10:00 a.m. Room S404AB

Presenters will discuss radiologist peer review history, practices and implementation of a department wide peer review conference, and will review methods of peer review and peer learning through IT improvements, institutional consensus criteria development, and creation of Rad-Path modules.



Genitourinary Series: Prostate MRI in the PI-RADS Era: Detection, Diagnosis and MRI Guided/Targeted Interventions

Thursday, 8:30 a.m.–12 p.m. Room E450B

Presenters discuss current issues in prostate cancer care including multiparametric MRI (mpMRI). Attendee will learn how to apply PI-RADS V2 MpMRI quantitative metrics-added value to PI-RADS.



A Personal Organ Dose Archive System for Patient Safety in Radiotherapy

Wednesday, 10:50–11 a.m. Room S503AB

Researchers developed a personal organ dose (PODA) system that can be used to track and accumulate each patient's organ doses associated with the use of sophisticated treatment technologies and image-guidance procedures in modern radiotherapy.



Evolving Perspectives on Ultrasound Safety

Thursday, 8:30–10:00 a.m. Room S504AB

Presenters will discuss the physical principles related to ultrasound safety and the potential for biological effects of ultrasound.
