Medtech Exhibitors Connect at RSNA 2005

More than 26,000 radiologists and allied medical professionals convened in Chicago at the end of November for the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA; Oakbrook, IL). Billed by the organizer as the largest medical convention in the world, the week-long event featured its largest-ever exhibition hall, spanning 489,359 ft and filled with 718 exhibitors, including 130 first-timers. Overall attendance, including medical professionals, guests, exhibitors, and media, surpassed 61,000.

The latest advances in the full range of imaging modalities were on display, including x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, positron emission tomography, nuclear medicine, and hybrid products that incorporate more than one imaging technology. Radiology's pacesetting position in systems connectivity and the move

to adopt electronic health records was evidenced in both the exhibit hall and in the technical sessions. RSNA 2005 prominently featured the latest advances in digital radiology, picture archiving and communications systems (PACS), and an array of products and services that enable integration, interoperability, and full networking capability within and beyond the hospital setting.
