Ronald L. Arenson, M.D.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to RSNA's 101st annual meeting and invite you to join in the historic celebration of the Society's Centennial.

This year, as a new century begins for RSNA, the meeting includes many special features demonstrating that "Innovation is the Key to our Future." Step into the future of radiology through Centennial Showcase exhibits featuring innovations such as 3-D printing, virtual holography, personalized medicine and more. There has never been a more exciting time for radiology, nor a more fulfilling time in terms of our potential impact on the health of the patients we serve.

RSNA's selection of hundreds of educational courses and exhibits and thousands of scientific presentations, as well as our always robust technical exhibition, offer you an unmatched experience to learn, witness and collaborate.

You can further enhance your experience by attending courses via the Virtual Meeting—during the week and through December 21. Glimpse advancements made around the world by visiting the Germany and Mexico Presents sessions.

The Daily Bulletin will keep you informed throughout the week with previews of upcoming sessions as well as coverage of some of the exciting things happening throughout McCormick Place this week. Each edition will highlight the cutting-edge research and clinical applications presented at the meeting. The Technical Exhibits Focus section includes news and product announcements from the exhibit floor.

Remember also to take time to connect with your peers during RSNA 2015 — this week offers you unparalleled opportunities for networking with colleagues and luminaries from around the globe.

On behalf of the RSNA Board of Directors, volunteers and staff, I wish you an extraordinary, memorable and productive week in Chicago.

Ronald L. Arenson, M.D.
RSNA President

Question of the Day:

What is a safe dose for a radiation worker's lens?

Tip of the day:

Marking the floor of fluoroscopy exam rooms can help keep staff aware of radiation, especially for personnel like speech pathologists who may be less aware of radiation dose regions than radiology personnel.
