Daily Bulletin 2016

Outstanding Researcher and Educator

Monday, Nov. 28, 2016

During the RSNA 2016 Opening Session on Sunday, President Richard L. Baron, MD, (center) honored Clifford R. Jack Jr., MD, (left) the Alexander Family Professor of Alzheimer's Disease Research and clinician investigator at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn., as the 2016 RSNA Outstanding Researcher. Kristen K. DeStigter, MD, (right) the John P. and Kathryn H. Tampas Green & Gold Professor and Interim Chair of Radiology at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, Burlington, was honored as the 2016 RSNA Outstanding Educator.

Question of the Day:

What correction factors do I need to convert CTDIvol to dose?

Tip of the day:

Just because a device is MRI compatible does not mean it will remain so, if it is altered. For example, a neurostimulator may be MRI conditional, but if the base unit is removed (but leads remain in the patent) that patient is not necessarily safe to scan anymore.
