RSNA: From a Past Newbie

RSNA 2023Advice for RSNA 2023 newbie attendees. I attended RSNA for the first time in 2022, and I must say, it was an eye-opening experience. The event, which is one of the largest radiology conferences in the world, offered a wealth of knowledge, networking opportunities, and fascinating insights into the innovation within radiology. As someone who had the privilege of attending, I can now validate the following points from my own firsthand experience.

Cutting-Edge Technology and Innovations: RSNA is a treasure trove of cutting-edge radiological technology and innovations. From state-of-the-art imaging equipment to software solutions that enhance diagnostic accuracy, you’ll find it all. Being there, I had the chance to witness live demonstrations and interact with experts, providing invaluable insights into the latest advancements in the field.

Educational Sessions: The educational sessions at RSNA are top-notch. Whether you’re a seasoned radiologist or a newbie, there’s something for everyone. The diverse range of topics covered in the lectures and workshops is truly impressive. There are several stages within the exhibition hall and even on individual booths. Enlitic will have micro-presentations in 2023, which will be 5-minute talks that answer some frequent questions people have regarding their imaging data as well as participating on the Blackford booth partner presentations.

Networking Opportunities: RSNA is not just about gaining knowledge; it’s also a fantastic platform for networking. I was able to connect with professionals from around the world, forging valuable relationships and collaborations. Whether you’re looking to discuss research, share experiences, or explore career opportunities, RSNA offers the ideal environment to do so. There are events during and after the show each day that are definitely worth looking into.

Poster Presentations: The poster sessions at RSNA are a great way to delve into specific research topics. I was able to explore a vast array of scientific posters, each offering a unique perspective on various radiological studies. It’s a fantastic opportunity to engage with researchers, ask questions, and gain a deeper understanding of the latest research findings.

The RSNA Exhibition: The exhibition hall is a highlight of the conference. It’s enormous and packed with vendors showcasing the latest radiological equipment, services, and technologies. I was able to see, touch, and experience the latest innovations firsthand. Equipment vendors bring in full sized scanners and use actors to show how their equipment works, roadmap products are available with high-end tech vendors, like Enlitic, and there are cool VR demonstrations that are equally as fun as they are informative.

Transportation: Ride the Bus: If you’re considering how to get around during RSNA, I’d recommend using the bus service they provide. While it may require a bit of patience due to potential waiting times, it’s a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to using Uber or taxis. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to meet fellow attendees and engage in discussions related to the conference, making your journey more enjoyable and informative. There are multiple stops near each hotel, and it is just easy.

Footwear Essentials: Don’t underestimate the importance of proper footwear at RSNA. Prioritize comfort with supportive shoes, your feet will thank me. If you opt for heels for a more professional appearance, pack a comfortable pair, like flats or sneakers, to give your feet a break when needed without compromising on style. Moisture-wicking socks and blister plasters or moleskin are also essential for ensuring your feet remain comfortable during this multi-day conference.

In conclusion, attending RSNA was an incredible experience that offered a deeper understanding of the radiological field, access to cutting-edge technology, and the chance to connect with professionals from all over the world. If you’re considering attending RSNA 2023, I can wholeheartedly validate the points mentioned above. It’s an event that’s well worth your time, and you’ll come away with a wealth of knowledge and meaningful connections.
