The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), a non-profit organization with over 52,000 members from 153 countries, has recently joined Research4Life. This adds five journals, accessible to all users, to the Hinari collection. The society also hosts the world’s largest radiology conference. Marta Jendra, Assistant Director of RSNA’s journals division, tells us all about what they do.

Why did you join Research4Life?

Marta: “Joining Research4Life supports our mission to promote excellence in patient care and healthcare delivery through education, research, and technological innovation. While RSNA already had a program that offered free journal access to low-income countries and discounted membership dues, we felt that there was a need to expand readership and offer additional educational support to institutions with low resources.”

What kind of content does RSNA publish and who is your target audience?

Marta: “We publish five peer-reviewed journals that span across various specialties in the field of radiology.

Radiology publishes cutting-edge imaging research articles in radiology and medical imaging, including authoritative reviews, commentary on significant articles, and expert opinion on new techniques and technologies. RadioGraphics publishes practice-focused articles, addressing topics such as diagnostic imaging, techniques, practice policy and quality initiatives, and lifelong learning.

“Our subspecialty journals Radiology: Artificial Intelligence, Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging, and Radiology: Imaging Cancer, focus on various topics such as emerging applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence in the field of imaging, research advances and technical developments in cardiothoracic medicine, and clinical and translational cancer imaging studies across systems and modalities.”

Do you offer any additional resources that our users can benefit from?

Marta: “In March 2020, we launched a page dedicated to COVID-19 information, which includes free resources such as consensus statement and guidelines from expert panels, tools and images, educational resources, special reports, and original research published in RSNA journals. In addition to that, we recently launched the RSNA Case Collection, a database of clinical cases that can be used for educational purposes.”
