9th Annual Medical Imaging Technology Showcase

This year’s 9th Annual Medical Imaging Technology Showcase was the largest ever! Once again held at the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, the event highlighted the best of academia, industry and patient-focused research in a forum that educated our nation’s leadership about new cutting-edge technologies being introduced and how they affect patient outcomes. Click here for a detailed summary.

With 16 booths and 8 patient advocacy groups on hand, the event truly showcased new trends and technologies that are changing the face of imaging research and improving patient diagnosis and outcomes. The Showcase focused on interactive models and technologies which gave the audience a greater ability to personally hold 3D printed models and to experience first-hand virtual reality technologies.

Also on hand were the Academy’s Early Career Investigators (CECI²) of 2018. There were 12 new researchers along with their Chair, Rebecca Rakow-Penner, MD, PhD and Co-Chair, Jadranka Stojanovska, MD. To meet the amazing investigators and see their research posters click here.

The Academy was particularly grateful to have Rep. Anna Eshoo of California as our keynote speaker. Also sharing remarks were David Karow, MD, PhD, Human Longevity, Inc./University of California San Diego, Marlo Gottfurcht Longstreet, President of the Tanner Project Foundation, and Melissa Kopolow McCall of the Hydrocephalus Association. Hearing the compelling stories of these two mothers were amazing, heartbreaking and enlightening and demonstrate how imaging played a role in the children’s diagnosis and treatment.
