Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)

Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) is a society of radiologists and similar health scientists that seeks to encourage connections between colleagues and provide scientists with a platform for radiology education and research.

The RSNA runs an annual scientific meeting and tradeshow every winter that publicizes new research and advances in the field of radiological technology.  Many of the technologies and vendor partnerships unveiled at these shows have to do with mobile and electronic healthcare. These include GE Healthcare's Centricity OneView, software that integrates medical applications, or the partnership that uses the LifeImage Inc. Web services to send radiology images from physicians to the Microsoft HealthVault personal health record (PHR) service.

The RSNA also publishes a number of trade journals about radiology, including Radiology (a monthly publication focused on the latest research), RadioGraphics (a journal of peer-reviewed material presented at the annual RSNA meeting) and RSNA News (a monthly newsletter to keep RNSA members informed of RSNA happenings).
