President’s Address: Radiology, Reimagined.
CHICAGO—Radiology is on the cusp of once again refining the practice of medicine, according to an address Sunday morning by RSNA president Hedvig Hricak, M.D., Ph.D. “Cross-sectional anatomic imaging transformed radiology into an essential guiding hand of medical practice,” she said. “Now we are adding metabolic and functional imaging and evolving from descriptive reporting into...
