Don’t Miss: Our RSNA 2021 Programme Highlights

- By Jacqueline Wheeler

Back in 1997, when we were XCounter developing the first photon counting X-ray detectors, we could only have dreamed of how the technology would change the landscape of medical imaging. Since then, we have rapidly evolved from a dynamic company at the cutting edge of photon counting X-ray innovation – Direct Conversion – to our current presence as the innovative branch of global experts in X-ray, Varex Imaging.

As we have grown in our expertise and capacity as a business, so has the excitement around photon counting X-ray technology. So much so, that this year’s packed RSNA programme has plenty of talks to choose from if you want to find out how photon counting works and how scientists around the world are discovering its potential for an ever growing range of medical applications.

To help you make your way to some of the talks available at RSNA, our onsite expert, Dr York Haemisch, Director Medical and Research Markets, has made this selection:
