RSNA to Launch Case Collection
The RSNA Case Collection, a new point-of-care tool to assist radiologists in diagnoses, will launch in Spring 2020. Cases will be peer reviewed and RSNA vetted, building a curated, trusted resource for daily practice. The easy-to-use online platform will organize cases by subspecialty, putting the most relevant cases front and center and enabling confident diagnoses. This valuable resource will be available free to RSNA members. An editor search for the RSNA Case Collection is underway.

In 2019, 24 grants have been awarded to members from 13 countries.
