During this hour-long webinar sponsored by Cortechs.ai, an expert panel of neuroradiologists will review the use of automated volumetric post-processing for the diagnosis and longitudinal assessment of multiple sclerosis and will address potential correlations between white and gray matter lesion counts and volumes, lesion burden and brain structure volumes. Register today and don’t miss the opportunity to learn from these experts and ask questions during the live panel discussion.

 

Value of Imaging through Comparative Effectiveness (VOICE) Program

Registration Deadline: July 31

The RSNA Value of Imaging through Comparative Effectiveness (VOICE) Program offers 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, radiologists and radiation oncologists at all levels of clinical experience will participate in two interactive 1½ day online educational courses, in-person workshops and webinars over the course of nine months. The workshops will be held Sept. 17-18, 2021 and Feb. 25-26, 2022 at RSNA Headquarters in Oak Brook, IL.
