Review of RSNA 2009 Results

  • Attendance/Feedback for 2009 sessions
  • RSNA staff will distribute course evaluations
  • Overall comments positive
  • Longer block sessions (90 minutes) allows sessions to align better with overall program
  • Some feedback on repetitive content between sessions due to merging "IHE Intro" sessions
  • Will reduce intro length to around 15 min in 2010, focus more on profiles
  • The open-ended International session overloaded audience
  • Consider keeping the XDS-I session paired with international examples but focus on XDS
  • Action: ??? Consider updating format of IHE International meeting to re-institute regional reports
  • But focus and limit slides, e.g. two slides on best successes (that other regions may wish to emulate) and two slides on biggest challenges (that other regions may be able to provide advice on, or may want to pool resources if it's a common problem)
