RadBook 2016

Radiology is and continues to be a fascinating discipline. The breakneck speed of technological innovation in imaging systems that produce an ever increasing flow of diagnostically relevant information are breathtaking.

Progress, however, has its price: today, the species of the general radiologist who is adept at diagnosing each and every organ in the body is virtually extinct. It might sound strange, but the fragmentation of radiology into sub-specialities triggers the formation of radiology groups in order to be able to provide physicians with “whole body” diagnostics but also to be able to survive economically. This paradigm shift that can be observed throughout Europe might have a major impact on healthcare delivery.

Collaborative care is the buzzword describing cross-departmental and cross-facility cooperation that aims to bundle specialist knowledge. This development requires not only modern hardware but also dedicated software that turns data into information. We will be tracking the trend towards Big Data and Deep Learning with great interest.

RadBook 2016 presents the current imaging developments from A as in angiography to Z as in z-axis.
