The annual gathering of more than 54,000 healthcare radiology and imaging professionals Nov. 26 to Dec. 1 in Chicago remains one of the largest such meetings in the world. With more than 600 technical exhibits covering 411,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space, and presentation of 1700 scientific papers, the annual RSNA meeting can overwhelm attendees.
