OAK BROOK, Ill. (Jan. 14, 2020) – The Radiological Society of North America's 105th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting (RSNA 2019), held in Chicago's McCormick Place from December 1 to 6, highlighted RSNA's ongoing commitment to being a leader in artificial intelligence (AI) research and education in radiology. The meeting's theme was "See Possibilities Together."
Advances in machine learning and AI offer a variety of applications that are now being employed in medical imaging with exciting results. RSNA 2019 provided an expansive selection of AI sessions and education exhibits, an AI Learning Community, as well as the AI Showcase and Theater. The showcase allowed attendees to participate in hands-on workshops, connect with companies to see the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence products, and learn more about how to implement these groundbreaking applications in their practices.
"RSNA recognizes the importance of artificial intelligence to the future of radiology research and practice, so we offered our attendees an abundance of AI sessions, posters and education exhibits," said RSNA Executive Director Mark G. Watson. "We also expanded our AI Showcase and Theater to include even more innovative products, solutions and presentations from leaders in the field."

The showcase also hosted a recognition session for the awardees of RSNA Intracranial Hemorrhage Detection and Classification Challenge. The AI competition required teams to develop algorithms to identify and classify subtypes of hemorrhages on head CT scans. The data set, comprising more than 25,000 head CT scans, was the first multiplanar dataset used in an RSNA AI Challenge.
The RSNA AI Deep Learning Lab, with four different courses designed by RSNA members, provided attendees opportunities to get hands-on experience building deep learning systems and a better understanding of the relevance of AI.
RSNA 2019 featured numerous other hot topics in radiology, such as advanced visualization and 3D printing for medical applications. The 3D Printing and Advanced Visualization Showcase highlighted the latest products in 3D printing equipment and software, as well as advanced visualization products like augmented reality, holography and virtual reality platforms.
The Innovation Theater featured exhibitor presentations of new products and advances in medical imaging, and the new Radiation Safety Zone showcased the latest products and services developed to create a culture of radiation safety.
