The Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA, Oak Brook, IL, USA) has announced Technical Exhibits highlights for their 108th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting (RSNA 2022) held in Chicago at McCormick Place, Nov. 27 – Dec. 1. As the world’s largest annual medical imaging forum, RSNA 2022: Empowering Patients and Partners in Care provides attendees with a standout exhibition floor, featuring the latest medical imaging technologies in CT, MRI, artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing, and more.
RSNA 2022 features a wealth of industry programming throughout the week, including corporate symposiums, Lunch & Learns, virtual industry and product presentations, vendor workshops, Innovation Theater and AI Theater presentations. In the South Hall, the RSNA AI Showcase, sponsored by AIRS Medical and Bayer Calantic Digital Solutions, features more than 90 companies and covers 35,800 square feet. The AI Showcase Theater will feature 36 industry presentations throughout the week. RSNA presentations in the AI Theater will begin on Sunday, Nov. 27, with RSNA’s Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers Alliance (QIBA). On Monday, Nov. 28, RSNA will hold a special presentation to recognize the winners of the RSNA Cervical Spine Fracture AI Challenge. On Tuesday, Nov. 29, there will be a presentation by editorial board members from Radiology: Artificial Intelligence. The RSNA Imaging AI Certificate Program takes the stage on Wednesday, Nov. 30.
The South Hall will also have the Imaging AI in Practice (IAIP) demonstration, which will highlight new AI technologies and integration standards needed to embed AI into the diagnostic radiology workflow. The interactive exhibit will enable attendees to determine what is possible, identify the right questions to ask, and learn how to introduce and scale AI into their radiology practices. Using real-world clinical scenarios involving both emergent and long-term care, 19 vendors with 30 products will walk RSNA 2022 meeting attendees through the exhibit to see AI tools and health information technology standards in action. Demonstrations will follow the radiology workflow from ordering of the imaging exam through reporting and follow-up.
The Innovation Theater will also be in the South Hall with industry presentations Sunday through Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. On Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m., the Innovation Theater will host a presentation on the Medical Imaging Data Resource Center (MIDRC). MIDRC is a multi-institutional collaborative initiative driven by the medical imaging community and is aimed at accelerating the transfer of knowledge and innovation in the current COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Four additional showcases are in high demand and already sold out: 3D Printing and Mixed Reality Showcase, First-Time Exhibitor Pavilion, Educators Row and Recruiters Row. New this year, RSNA 2022 will host “Last Call in the Exhibit Halls” on Wednesday, Nov. 30, from 2 to 4 p.m. During this free social event, participating exhibitors will be serving refreshments at their booths, as attendees take one last walk around the technical exhibits to network and celebrate a successful RSNA 2022.
“RSNA 2022 will be the top event of the year to learn what’s new in the field of medical imaging,” said John P. Jaworski, C.E.M., RSNA assistant executive director of Meetings & Exhibition Services. “With over 600 exhibitors confirmed, including 87 first-time exhibitors, RSNA 2022 will be even larger than last year’s meeting. Attendees will be able to see, touch and experience new products and solutions, as well as network with experts from across the globe. Those who cannot join us in Chicago can engage with RSNA exhibitors via RSNA 2022 Virtual Access.”
