  • RSNA Board of Directors Report

    December 01, 2012

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

    Committee Members, R&E Trustees Appointed

    In consultation with the committee chairs, the RSNA Board approved appointments to the Society’s many committees. The Board thanks the hundreds of dedicated volunteers who help RSNA to meet its mission.

    In the committee appointment process, RSNA 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 900 members are serving the Society on committees and editorial boards, and as representatives to other organizations.

    James P. Borgstede, M.D., will assume the position of chair of the 2013 Research & Education (R&E) Foundation Board of Trustees. Richard D. White, M.D., and Richard L. Morin, Ph.D., were appointed as new Foundation board trustees, and trustees Sarah S. Donaldson, M.D., Richard L. Ehman, M.D., and Valerie P. Jackson, M.D., were reappointed. G. Scott Gazelle, M.D., Ph.D., and Burton P. Drayer, M.D., were appointed as secretary and treasurer, respectively.

    The RSNA News Editorial Board welcomes 2007 RSNA President R. Gilbert Jost, M.D., as its new Research & Education Foundation Contributing Editor.

    Ongoing Collaboration Supports Molecular Imaging

    RSNA is once again a co-sponsor of the World Molecular Imaging Congress (WMIC), to be held Sept. 18-21, 2013, in Savannah, Ga. RSNA’s support includes appointment of two representatives, Paul Kinahan, Ph.D., and King Li, M.D., to the WMIC planning committee.

    RSNA also reiterated its commitment to encourage radiology department chairs to consider establishing more medical imaging physics residencies.

    New Quality Improvement Certificate

    The Board authorized creation of an advanced level certificate in principles of quality improvement. More details about the new certificate will be available at RSNA.org/quality.aspx. RSNA currently offers Quality Essentials Certificates of Completion to annual meeting attendees who successfully participate in Session II and/or Session III of the Quality Improvement Symposium. The Quality Essentials Certificate: Quality Improvement in Your Practice can also be obtained by scoring 80 percent or higher on the online self-assessment module from this session. The second Quality Essentials course will be available online by June 2013.

    I’m excited, as I know you are as well, about what lies ahead for RSNA and our specialty in the coming year.
