Worth Repeating…

“These are independent researchers, doctors, scientists from across the country, who have been appointed with the task of looking at the hard science and then giving the government and industry recommendations. And they did that on Monday. But we as a population were unwilling to accept, which has become very apparent over the last 48 hours, the message, which is that mammography screening for women between 40 and 49 is not necessarily cost effective.”

— Nancy Snyderman, MD, an NBC medical correspondent speaking on the Today show

E-News Exclusive

The topic always comes up in the McCormick Place exhibit halls.
How’s the show been? Has it been busy? Is attendance down?

Everyone wants to know and RSNA puts out an estimate during the show. About one month later, the attendance mystery is solved when the audited attendance numbers surface. It happened again this year. More than 56,800 people were registered for RSNA 2009, including 26,363 professional attendees. Each number represents a 4% drop from 2008.

But what about the bigger picture? Curious, I went searching for the audited total and professional attendance numbers from the past five years. The accompanying chart contains those results.
