  • RSNA Board of Directors Report

    December 01, 2013

    At its September meeting, the RSNA Board of Directors approved collaborations with other radiologic and medical societies and appointed volunteers to RSNA committees for the coming year.

    Committee Members, R&E Trustees Appointed

    The Board approved appointments to RSNA’s many committees. The Board is grateful to the hundreds of dedicated volunteers who help RSNA to meet its mission every year.

    In the committee appointment process, the RSNA Board aims to maximize volunteer participation in the Society and involve members in training to help ensure that RSNA products, services, programs, and activities meet the needs of trainees now and as they develop professionally. More than 1,000 members are serving the Society on committees and editorial boards, and as representatives to other organizations.

    N. Reed Dunnick, M.D., was appointed as a new RSNA Research & Education Foundation board trustee, and trustees Gregory C. Karnaze, M.D., and Thomas N. McCausland were reappointed. G. Scott Gazelle, M.D., Ph.D., and Dr. Karnaze were appointed as secretary and treasurer, respectively. Burton P. Drayer, M.D., was appointed as Foundation chairman-elect and will become chair at the conclusion of RSNA 2014.

    Collaborations Support Imaging Physics Residencies, BRAIN Initiative

    RSNA has increased its financial commitment to the American Association of Physicists in Medicine to support a total of eight imaging physics residencies over the next six years. Read more about the AAPM/RSNA Imaging Physics Residency Grant Funding Program here. 

    RSNA has agreed to be a sponsor of “Imaging in 2020,” a meeting designed to facilitate effective communication among basic and clinical researchers from many different fields, to be held in Jackson Hole, Wyo., in September 2014.

    RSNA joined the American Society of Neuroradiology in a statement on the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, to be presented to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) BRAIN Working Group.

    Also in the area of brain research, the RSNA Research Development Committee will be charged with developing an RSNA vision of opportunities in the area of brain mapping, including RSNA’s role as convener on this topic.

    Looking Ahead

    With 2014 just around the corner, plans continue for a number of RSNA programs and services to be offered in the coming year. The Board approved the transfer of $500,000 from the RSNA operating reserves to the RSNA Research & Education Foundation during fiscal 2014.

    The Board approved two Country Presents sessions, featuring Korea and Canada, for RSNA 2014.

    A big part of RSNA 2014 will be the celebration of the RSNA Centennial, which is occurring over the next two years. A Centennial Pavilion at RSNA 2014 and RSNA 2015 will feature RSNA and radiology artifacts and interactive presentations, and a special supplement to Radiology in late 2014 will take a look back at a century’s worth of the highest quality radiology research. Watch upcoming issues of RSNA News and the RSNA.org website for more information about centennial activities and how you can get involved.

    As a co-chair of the Ad-Hoc RSNA Centennial Planning Committee, I’m excited as we begin to celebrate 100 years of accomplishments and look forward to what is to come. RSNA always has been a force in radiologic science and education and my fellow Board members and I thank you for helping continue that tradition.
