This year's RSNA is almost over and I am happy to report that it seemed to be to be a great success.
My unscientific estimate would suggest that there are fewer attendees and fewer exhibitors, but not by much. However, the quality of the attendees, or that is to say, the authority of the attendees seems to be higher than it has been in past years.
Unofficially, I would estimate that fewer people visited the show from outside the United States, which could be a result of visa challenges over politics.
Fewer exhibitors could have to do with consolidation and could have to do with an uncertain feeling about the future.
Our editorial team has been writing about the show and will continue to over the next several days. We've also posted Dr. Michael Friebe's annual report
, which will tell you a lot about the details of the show, so I'm going to devote the rest of my blog to photographs from some parties I attended. Let me know if you see yourself!
