Residents/Fellows Share Their Favorite Parts of the RSNA Annual Meeting
Tuesday, Dec. 01, 2015
The Daily Bulletin hit the Residents Lounge on Monday to ask doctors the question: What are you looking forward to most at RSNA 2015? Although their answers were as varied as the countries from which they came, most wanted to meet new people, check out the latest technology and further their education in their particular field.
The RSNA 2015 Daily Bulletin is owned and published by the Radiological Society of North America, Inc., 820 Jorie Blvd., Oak Brook, IL 60523.

Daily Bulletin: Question of the day
I want to change the MR imaging parameters for a new protocol based on a research paper I read, but the console says the SAR is too high. What is SAR?
SAR (specific absorption ratio) is the ratio of radiofrequency power to mass. The International Electrotechnical Commission standard states that a SAR greater than 4 W/kg be used only for research, and as much must be approved by an Institutional Review Board.
