RSNA 2009 Epilogue

Confession time: I have a love-hate relationship with RSNA. I love going, attending educational sessions (the handful that interest me and that my brain can wrap around) and cruising the technical exhibits to see what’s new and interesting. My experiences as an exhibitor, well, they were universally disappointing… until this year that is…

Installment 3(b) – MRI Safety Tour of RSNA Exhibit Hall A (part 2)

(This is a continuation of my recommended MRI safety vendor itinerary, starting at the North Hall, which you can read about here, Lakeside Center, which you can read about here, and the first half of the South Hall, which you can read about here.)

Our company, Mednovus, is making the annual pilgrimage to Chicago after Thanksgiving for the biggest of all radiology trade shows, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. In my original post I indicated why I thought MRI safety would be a ‘hot topic’ at this year’s RSNA, and gave an itinerary for the North Hall (the Philips Hall) for stops at relevant vendors, including our company, Mednovus (booth #7801). Then I followed up with an itinerary for the Lakeside Center, and just a couple days ago, I provided half of the South Hall.

Continuing on that theme, and to facilitate your review of MRI safety products and vendors, I’d like to suggest an itinerary for visiting the remaining select group of exhibitors from Exhibit Hall A, the South Hall, where the GE mega-booth is located…

MRI Safety Tour of RSNA Exhibit Hall B

Our company, Mednovus, is making the annual pilgrimage to Chicago after Thanksgiving for the biggest of all radiology trade shows, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. The ‘buzz’ at each of these shows has traditionally been focused on the new-product launches from the ‘big 3′ (Philips, Siemens, and GE), and very little on ancillary or support solutions. This year, however, with the looming Michael Colombini civil trial and forthcoming design standards on MRI safety, that may all be about to change, with a new focus on MRI safety issues.

To facilitate your review of safety features, I’d like to suggest an itinerary for visiting a select group of exhibitors, starting with North Exhibit Hall B (the Philips hall)… Click To Read The Suggested List…
