Medical Education credits, and highlight new diagnostic imaging textbooks 

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, will showcase new features of its diagnostic decision

support tool STATdx®, highlight new diagnostic imaging textbooks, and recognize several of its distinguished physician authors being honored by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at the RSNA 2016 Annual Meeting, November 27 - December 2, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.

Elsevier will present two new features of STATdx®, a diagnostic decision support system for radiologists:

Translations are available in eight languages: Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, German, French, and Japanese.
  • Addition of Cine Clips - Cine clips enable users to increase accuracy and confidence in diagnosing complex cases and complement the more than 20,000 patient cases currently contained in STATdx.

Elsevier continues to offer point-of-care Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits to physicians for searches they complete in STATdx.  

Among the other activities taking place at the Elsevier booth (#1104):
