Weak dollar, medical preeminence drive up international attendance

January 22, 2008

Overall, attendance at the RSNA meeting saw a 1% increase compared with last year. But professional attendance was up 3%, and the number of international professional attendees increased by 6% compared with 2006. International attendance has been growing steadily since 2003. A weak dollar lures European visitors, but it is interest in U.S. radiology that really draws the numbers, said RSNA spokesperson Dr. Leonard Berlin, radiology chair at Rush North Shore Medical Center in Skokie, IL.
