    RSNA Mobile Connect Answers Your Trickiest Tech Questions

    Unsure how to use a QR Code or post a Tweet? At this year's annual meeting, consider RSNA your own personal Geek Squad.

    Designed to encourage meeting attendees to engage more interactively on their mobile devices, the all-new RSNA Mobile Connect, located in the Services Pavilion in McCormick Place, will provide trained experts to field the increasing number of questions users have about mobile technology.

    Users entering RSNA Mobile Connect will be met by a greeter to guide them to the appropriate staff member for help with RSNA-specific and general technology questions. Tech experts will familiarize users with mobile device functions, download the Meeting Program, RSNA scientific journals, RadiologyInfo.org and more on m.RSNA.org, and demonstrate technologies like the digital presentation system used for RSNA DxLive™.

    Along with a "Genius Bar" style layout (made famous by Apple retail stores) featuring iPads, iPhones and Android phones and tablets, RSNA Mobile Connect offers two "theaters" where users can watch mobile app demonstrations. Designed to optimize your annual meeting—and Chicago—experience, one theater will be devoted to RSNA apps and those related to exploring the city (such as making a dinner reservation), while the second theater will feature mobile app demonstrations by RSNA 2012 exhibitors and presenters. Each theater seats 10-15 people.

    RSNA Mobile Connect will be open during regular Services Pavilion hours beginning Saturday, November 24. More information on RSNA Mobile Connect will appear in the October-November Annual Meeting Preview issue of RSNA News.

    Virtual Meeting Packs More Content into RSNA 2012 Lineup

    Offering even more content  than last year, the RSNA 2012 Virtual Meeting allows users to experience the world's premier medical imaging event from anywhere in the world via the Internet with a Mac or PC.

    Participants can access live streaming courses, Cases of the Day and new opportunities to earn up to 78.50 Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits*. In addition, "on demand" courses and sessions, scientific presentations, education exhibits and virtual technical exhibits will be available throughout the week.

    Introduced in 2011, the Virtual Meeting is free for RSNA members and registered attendees, and no additional registration is necessary.

    *This live activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
