Value of Imaging Through Comparative Effectiveness (VOICE) Program

Register by May 2nd to take advantage of earlybird pricing

The RSNA Value of Imaging through Comparative Effectiveness (VOICE) Program is an interactive training program designed to meet the needs of imaging scientists interested in conducting comparative effectiveness research to demonstrate the value of imaging.

Developed for radiologists and radiation oncologists at all levels of clinical experience, the VOICE program offers researchers in imaging science the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills that can be applied to eliciting the value and cost-effectiveness of diagnostic imaging procedures and imaging-based procedures.

Beginning in September, participants will participate in two interactive 1½-day in-person workshops, online educational courses and webinars. The two workshops will be held Sept. 27–28, 2019, and Feb. 28–29, 2020, at RSNA headquarters in Oak Brook, IL.

The earlybird registration fee for this program is $975 for members and $1,200 for non-members. Registered participants are responsible for all travel expenses and hotel accommodations.
