Dr. Michael Friebe's annual RSNA report

By Dr. Michael Friebe

My last years report was titled "BEYOND IMAGING: Radiology is Changing! Big Data / Machine and Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence is everywhere!“ — well that was just the beginning and the title this year definitely deserves to be...

In the last years I have always integrated a small section on physical activities and even some food info... very short this time: average 10km walking per day, swam around 1km every morning, and I actually ate three meals a day... on Sunday with my friends from the 'MIM-Club‘. Never heard of that? Good, we want to keep it that way, but if you are willing to pay for next year's dinner at Harry Caray we may give you some insight details :-)

By the way, the weather was excellent again — at least on Monday and Tuesday no coat needed even at night.
