FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RadiologyInfo.org Sets New Record Number of Visits

The RSNA and the American College of Radiology (ACR) public information website, RadiologyInfo.org, logged 1,026,641 visits during May 2015 - the highest number of visits to the site within a single month ever. The site first surpassed the million-visitor mark in March 2015.

“This is an exciting milestone for RadiologyInfo.org,” said Elliot K. Fishman, M.D., co-chair of the RSNA-ACR Public Information Website Committee. “Thanks to the combined efforts of many radiology professionals, RSNA and ACR have created an important information resource that positively impacts thousands of lives each day.”

RadiologyInfo.org is dedicated to being the trusted radiology information resource for patients. The website offers more than 200 radiologic procedure descriptions, disease/condition topics and screening/wellness articles with easy-to-understand descriptions about what to expect from imaging exams, how to prepare and more.

RSNA Diagnosis Live™

Complimentary licenses are available for radiology residency programs to use RSNA Diagnosis Live™, an interactive learning tool which gives attendees of a lecture or class the opportunity to answer questions using their personal mobile wireless devices. Courses utilizing RSNA Diagnosis Live™ will be offered at RSNA 2015.

Essentials of Radiology

Previously only available during the RSNA Annual Meeting and Scientific Assembly, RSNA’s popular Essentials of Radiology is now being offered on flash drive. Developed as a broad spectrum review for general radiologists, residents and subspecialists, the comprehensive collection contains over 14 hours of audiovisual content featuring 31 world-class RSNA Annual Meeting speakers in 10 courses.

International Collaborations Flourish

RSNA is pleased to provide support to the Deutsche Röntgengesellschaft in its efforts to restore the birthplace of Wilhelm Roentgen in Lennep, Germany. Learn more about the restoration project at www.roentgen-geburtshaus.de/.

RSNA will fund three scholarships at $3,000 each for the InterAmerican College of Radiology’s Latin American School of Radiology. The scholarships will support the participation of Latin American radiologists in subspecialty training with an experienced radiologist in the region.
