On an unseasonably warm Tuesday morning, runners convened along Lake Michigan to take part in the annual RSNA 5K Fun Run to support the RSNA Research & Education (R&E) Foundation. The event, with 755 registrants, raised more than $30,000.

Congratulations to the run's top finishers, including two-time male Gold Medalist Jonathan Kraas.

Question of the Day:

The NRC dose limit for radiation workers is 50 mSv/yr. How much radiation do flight crews and astronauts get?

Tip of the day:

Typically, mammography units have an HVL of 1cm. This means that a woman with a 6cm thick compressed breast needs at least four times as much radiation as a woman with a 4cm thick compressed breast.
