From the November 2016 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine


I’m particularly looking forward to the International Liver Symposium — a full day of sessions devoted to liver imaging, with faculty representing a multitude of the world’s leading experts covering key, up-to-date issues. Liver imaging has become a topic of global importance in medicine. Radiologists play a critical role in determining patient treatments and outcomes. It is imperative that we stay current on advancements in detection, staging and characterization of liver cancer.

I encourage attendees to visit the new RSNA Connections Center for additional educational, informational and social experiences. The McCormick Place Lakeside Ballroom will be transformed to include more interactive spaces and lounge areas for recharging — both themselves and their devices. As RSNA president, I’m also looking forward to welcoming attendees to my hometown of Chicago. I feel a great sense of pride in the world-class experiences and accommodations this beautiful city has to offer. I could not ask for a more perfect backdrop for what is sure to be another stellar RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting.

HCB News: How do you predict radiology will change in the next decade?
RB:
We are seeing a strong trend toward subspecialty medicine, and radiologists must vigilantly pursue meaningful continuing education to ensure proficiency at the subspecialty level. Also, in the face of rapid technological advancements, there is a danger of radiologists becoming more isolated.
