ARRS First and oldest radiology society in the United States.
The American Roentgen Ray Society, founded in 1900, is the first and oldest radiology society in the United States. The society has been a forum for progress in radiology since shortly after the discovery of the X-ray and is dedicated to the goal of the advancement of medicine through the science of radiology and its allied sciences. The goal of the ARRS is maintained through an annual scientific and educational meeting, through publication of the American Journal of Roentgenology, and through other educational symposia. The Annual Meeting consists of instructional courses, scientific paper presentations, a symposium, a new issues forum, scientific exhibits, and commercial exhibits. A special categorical course and annual Case-Based Review Course is also offered. Category 1 CME credits are available on an hour-for-hour basis. All members of the Society may attend the Annual Meeting with discounted payment of the general registration fee. The monthly American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) is a highly respected peer-reviewed journal with a worldwide circulation of more than 25,000. For more than 100 years, the AJR has been recognized as one of the best specialty journals in the world. The quarterly ARRS InPractice magazine keeps members informed of Annual Meeting plans and general Society information. The Society invests in the future of radiology by awarding scholarships and awards to deserving individuals through the Roentgen Fund.

The Time Has Come: Interactive Multimedia Radiology Reporting

In many aspects of daily life, digital communications are routinely enhanced beyond plain text with images, text formatting, and interactive elements. It seems natural to extend these improvements in communication to radiology reporting.

Read anything on the internet today and you can expect to find enriched content typical of digital communication—pictures that help tell the story, text formatting that calls attention to key information, and hyperlinks that connect us to additional content with just a click.  Such features impro...

The Basis for Social Media in Radiology

Social media can be a powerful tool for networking as Daniel Ortiz explains in the new issue of InPractice.

Social media has been labeled by many as “the great equalizer,” but the truth is that it does so much more than equalize. Prior to social media, both physicians and the public kept their networks local—that is their communities, institutions, and departments—and few opportunities existed to ...
