RSNA 2013 App is Centerpiece of Meeting Technology

Getting the most out of RSNA 2013? There's an app for that.

Mobile App

The RSNA 2013 app for iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones provides Meeting Program access even offline, along with maps for navigating McCormick Place, QR code scanner for interactive exhibits and drawings, agenda planner, Daily Bulletin online, exhibitor list access and a notification center for important meeting alerts. The RSNA 2013 app is sponsored by Siemens and available from the AppStore and Google Play.

The meeting app is just one example of the technology RSNA offers to make it easier for attendees to navigate the annual meeting and maximize their time in Chicago, said Vijay M. Rao, M.D., RSNA Board Liaison for Information Technology and Annual Meeting. "The RSNA annual meeting has so much to offer," she said. "We want to make it easy for attendees to zero in on their areas of interest, plan a week most personally meaningful for them, and easily find their way around McCormick Place."

Other technology includes the online RSNA Meeting Program, accessible via the RSNA 2013 app or directly at The online program offers detailed information about each of the hundreds of presentations happening at RSNA 2013. Search for courses by title and name of presenter, keyword, day, type of session and subspecialty.

Attendees can access the online RSNA Meeting Program from their own devices—WiFi is available throughout McCormick Place—or Internet Kiosks located throughout the convention center. Also accessible at the Internet Kiosks is the new CreditEval Center for claiming continuing education credit.

Those feeling a little overwhelmed by their technological options or who simply have a vexing question about their mobile device are encouraged to stop by Mobile Connect in the RSNA Services area, Lakeside Center Ballroom, Level 3. Tech experts will be on hand in this casual, open environment to help attendees get familiar with their mobile devices' functions and introduce them to the apps RSNA offers for RSNA 2013, Radiology, RadioGraphics, RSNA News, and Stop by anytime during RSNA Services hours for personalized, hands-on help. Demonstrations by annual meeting presenters and technical exhibitors will also occur at Mobile Connect during the week. See today's schedule here.

"We want to give RSNA meeting attendees the tools they need to get the very most out of the time they spend in Chicago," Dr. Rao said. "Whether they download the meeting app or head to the nearest help center, our attendees will find us ready with the information they need."
