RSNA is also spotlighting:

Learning Center

Machine Learning Community

A destination point for machine learning (ML)-related activities, the Machine Learning Community will be anchored by the RSNA Deep Learning Classroom presented by NVIDIA DLI. Attendees will have a hands-on opportunity to engage with ML learning tools, write algorithms and improve their understanding of emerging ML technology.

The Machine Learning Community will also feature backboard presentations and a National Cancer Institute (NCI) exhibit.

3-D Printing Demonstration and Showcase

In addition to many hands-on courses related to 3-D printing, the Learning Center will include poster presentations on 3-D printing in the showcase theater throughout the week and a demo area with additional information. Visit Meeting Central for a complete schedule of events.

Learning Center

Virtual Reality Showcase

A virtual reality demonstration provides a glimpse of the research and clinical potential made possible with newly affordable and remarkably compelling virtual reality technology. The exhibit features demonstrations of medical virtual reality tools including instructive clinical examples of using virtual reality for radiology exams, education, surgical planning and networked collaboration.

Learning Center

Visitors will have the opportunity to experience 3-D medical models in virtual reality, travel inside a virtual colonoscopy with a CT roadmap, interact with medical models and scan set images in re-imagined, intuitive and exciting ways.

NCI Image Perception Research

For the second year, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) will be conducting studies on radiologic image perception at RSNA's annual meeting. Attendees will be able to learn about this important area of research and, if they wish, participate in the studies as volunteers in a lab environment. The NCI Image Perception Lab is located near the Residents' Lounge.

Learning Center

Ask a Graphic Media Expert

Attendees looking for assistance with graphic arts for presentations or publications can visit the Learning Center and speak with a graphic media expert. Experts will be on hand to answer questions on topics such as preparing images for publication, working in a PowerPoint template and adding videos to a presentation.

CME Learning Checkpoint

This interactive activity will allow attendees to check out nine award-winning hard-copy exhibits from RSNA 2016. Attendees can study an exhibit and take the corresponding quiz on their mobile devices or laptops. Attendees receive 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for each completed quiz.

Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers Alliance (QIBA)

The QIBA Kiosk will provide information about the ongoing coalition efforts among clinicians, researchers, government agencies, industry and RSNA to advance the practice of radiology from image interpretation to quantitation. Meet the Experts presentations will be held throughout the week.

Quantitative Imaging Reading Room

Explore products that integrate quantitative analysis into image interpretation. Exhibits feature informational posters, computer-based demonstrations and "Meet the Experts" presentations.

Quality Improvement (QI) Storyboard Walks

Join experts in quality improvement in radiology as they walk through the QI storyboards, highlighting examples of great work and sound methodology. Bring your walking shoes and come prepared for an interactive session. Those who are interested in leading and publishing QI projects in the coming months and years will find this especially valuable. The poster walks will be held Monday, Nov. 27, at 3 p.m. and Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 4 p.m. in the Quality Storyboard section.
