Upon returning from attending their first annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), new staff with the Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA), a division of NEMA, shared their experiences.
ZACK HORNBERGER, DIRECTOR, CYBERSECURITY & INFORMATICS, MITA
RSNA touts itself as the biggest medical imaging event in the United States, and it lives up to that hype in spades. It was an excellent opportunity to learn more about the devices we talk about every day.
CAROLYN HULL, MANAGER, GLOBAL REGULATORY STANDARDS, MITA
While preparing for and attending the conference involved much work, it was helpful to remember why MITA exists, and why we attend RSNA: the patients. MITA works to keep patients safe, through Standards development and conversations with FDA.
HOLLY GROSHOLZ, MANAGER, GOVERNMENT RELATIONS, MITA
Seeing new medical imaging technologies reinforced the importance of our work: reducing regulatory barriers, establishing Standards, and advocating for the medical imaging industry so that these innovative and life- changing technologies can be shared more swiftly with the world.
