RSNA President N. Reed Dunnick, M.D., Welcomes You
I am pleased to welcome you to this truly historic occasion—our 100th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting.
In many ways this meeting is different from those in our past. It's bigger, with near record-breaking attendance and sessions on an ever increasing number of modalities and applications. And this meeting is supported by technology that our predecessors could not even imagine—some of you are reading this greeting, after all, on your smartphone or tablet via the RSNA 2014 app.
Some things are unchanged, however. We gather, as those before us did, to witness the very latest in radiologic science. We are here to experience new technology, learn from one another's experiences and focus our collective energy on the opportunities we have as a specialty.
I urge you to take advantage of all this milestone event has to offer. The Daily Bulletin can help. Watch each day's edition for coverage of the cutting-edge science and new clinical applications being presented at the meeting, as well as news and product announcements from the Technical Exhibits area.
And don't miss the Commemorative Centennial Section, Sunday through Wednesday, with a combination of historical features and coverage of the many Centennial activities happening during RSNA 2014.
More than anything, this meeting gives you the opportunity to network with your colleagues. Ninety-nine years of these discussions have brought us to where we are today, with advances that would make our predecessors proud and a strong radiologic community that continues to change healthcare for the better.
This year's theme is "A Century of Transforming Medicine," and throughout the week we will have many opportunities to reflect and reminisce. At the same time, we do what our predecessors did—invigorate our commitment to moving our specialty forward.
On behalf of the RSNA Board of Directors, I wish you an inspiring week.
N. Reed Dunnick, M.D.
2014 RSNA President
