Trends in Medical Imaging at RSNA 2015

As one of the largest medical shows in the world, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015 meeting has a lot of ground to cover, including all facets of medical imaging, including the latest advances in cardiac CT, MRI, angiography, echo, advanced visualization and 3-D printing. Here is a summary of the key trends and new technology. 

Watch a video wrap up of the key trends and technologies from RSNA 2015. ITN contributing editor Greg Freiherr and myself share what we saw and offer some analysis. 

Watch the video Editor's Choice of the Most Innovative New Technology at RSNA 2015. This is my recap on some of the most interesting new imaging technologies displayed that may offer a glimpse into the future standards of care. It includes big advances in cardiac MRI, cath lab chronic total occlusion (CTO) navigation software, advancements in premium echo systems, new point of care pocet ultrasound systems, and a cool new way to visualize 3-D datasets in true, high-quality 3-D.

Watch the video on the latest ultrasound trends and new technology at RSNA 2015. This is an interview with Jon Brubaker, MBA, RCVT, ultrasound technology analyst, MDbuyline, on the current trends and new technology entering the market for both general ultrasound, point of care and echocardiography. 

A major overarching trend observed was the rise of enterprise imaging and the movement away from disparate PACS and departmental systems such as cardiovascular information systems (CVIS or cardiac PACS). This movement has gained a lot of momentum due to healthcare reform and the need to for centralized repositories for patient data and images that enable greater access to the data. 

Watch the video Creating an Enterprise Imaging System, an interview with Kim Garriott, principal consultant, Logicalis Inc., and Jef Williams, COO, Ascendian Healthcare Consulting.
