    June 1, 2015

    Strategic Plan

    A refreshed RSNA Strategic Plan for 2015-2020 was approved. The new plan can be found at RSNA.org/RSNA_Strategic_Plan.aspx.

    RSNA Diagnosis Live™

    Radiology residency programs are reminded that complimentary licenses are available for them to use RSNA Diagnosis Live™, an interactive learning tool which gives attendees of a lecture or class the opportunity to "play along" by answering questions using their personal mobile wireless devices. For information, interested programs should contact Betsy Lockett at blockett@rsna.org.

    Volunteers Represent, Support RSNA

    The Board made appointments to RSNA’s Education Exhibits Awards Committee, Scientific Program Committee, and committees overseeing RSNA publications as well as RSNA members to represent the Society in other radiology and medical societies.

    Radiology Lends Its Perspective to Connectivity Efforts

    RSNA is participating in national discussions hosted by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONCHIT) regarding the establishment of a nationwide roadmap for interoperability in healthcare information.

    International Collaborations

    RSNA is pleased to provide financial support to the Deutsche Röntgengesellschaft for its efforts to restore the birthplace of Wilhelm Roentgen in Lennep, Germany. Learn more about the restoration project at www.roentgen-geburtshaus.de.

    The Board also authorized funding of three scholarships at $3,000 each annually for the InterAmerican College of Radiology’s Latin American School of Radiology.

    Image Wisely® Initiative Matures

    The Board received recommendations from a workgroup studying the future of Image Wisely®, an initiative founded in 2010 by RSNA and the American College of Radiology, American Association of Physicists in Medicine and American Society of Radiologic Technologists to raise awareness in the medical community to choose the best imaging exam for a particular clinical indication and optimize the imaging technique to provide diagnostic images using the lowest radiation dose possible. The recommendations will now be considered by the Image Wisely executive committee in charting the future of the initiative.

    The Celebration Continues at RSNA 2015

    Plans continue for RSNA 2015, where the Society will mark the 100th anniversary of its founding with an updated Centennial Showcase and more. Go to RSNA.org/AnnualMeeting for the latest on RSNA 2015.
