As pioneers of rigorous science and cutting-edge technology,
radiologic professionals are uniquely positioned to make
the healthcare system better for all patients. “We must
safeguard professionalism, develop our quality focus and
take control of radiology’s destiny by delivering value,”
challenged Dr. Becker in 2009.
Supported by the work of exceptionally dedicated volunteers,
RSNA will continue to lead the specialty of radiology.
