Report on this year's RSNA

by Philip F. Jacobus , President
I am on a plane flying home from Chicago and RSNA. This year's meeting was another great event.

If you are not living under a rock you know that diagnostic imaging is changing for the better thanks to AI and machine learning and this was evident on the show floor.

There were 26,000 professional attendees and 650 exhibits at the show.

There were no big surprises at the show but we did have a blizzard that caused a lot of people to miss their flights (including some of our own team).

We are looking forward to next year.
