Michael Friebe's 27th personal, slightly biased, and as always subjective RSNA report

An editorial by Michael Friebe

The title of my 2016 report was: BEYOND IMAGING: Radiology is Changing! Big Data / Machine and Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence is everywhere!" And the title of the 2017 report: Machine Learning in the center of Radiology Innovation

What was a beginning, followed by careful acceptance has now become THE major and most often referred innovation at pretty much any booth ... within just 3 years! The hardware innovations are becoming the enablers for the post-processing applications. We are living in an exponentially developing world ... and therefore this years header title is: AI / MACHINE LEARNING IS MAINSTREAM NOW — RSNA(I) 2018 IN AN EXPONENTIAL WORLD (the “RSNAi” with permission „stolen“ from a report of Mathias Goyen).

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

Before I start my write-up of the latest and greatest developments in radiology from the annual RSNA conference in Chicago allow me to report some societal developments that the Washington Post / NYT reader and occasional FOX watcher observed talking to our american friends and partners ... which worries and scares me. The US has become a deeply divided country over political direction and leadership. I certainly do have significantly more friends that are politically blue, but there were never really big discussions if you met and talked to a red one. Has all changed now! Heated and almost violent arguments are exchanged and I am shocked about the negative effects of the changed political direction under questionable leadership. Can we get reasonable and less self-centered again?

Weather: typical november for Chicago with slushy rain, snow and cold temperatures.
Attendance: not sure ... my impression says less, but I also heard selected positive comments. The poster hall was certainly not busy ... at least not during the times I was there.
Machine Learning Area: bigger than last year with a large number of very innovative companies and projects. Google was also there for the second year ... interested to see what their next steps in the healthcare segment will be.

Very Nice Report

As usual, nice job encapsulating the show, Michael. It should be interesting to see how this big new player United will do in the US market. I think they have a tough road unless they can significantly beat the price points of their European and American counterpoints. Also, of course, the equipment has to work well and exhibit similar reliability to competitor's products. Interesting time to be in this market!
