The RSNA 2010 conference is in full swing in Chicago and so are announcements from medical imaging vendors. For instance:

* Many vendors, with GE Healthcare, Philips, Siemens and Toshiba among them, are displaying "low dose" imaging modalities that enable significant reductions in radiation exposure without compromising imaging quality;

* Fujifilm has introduced a "work in progress" and not yet commercially available application called Synapse Mobility, which enables access to the vendor's Synapse RIS, PACS and cardiovascular applications from mobile computing devices as well as Macintosh and Windows personal computers;

* InSiteOne now offers its image archiving and access software on a per-user license basis independent of its hosted and onsite Web-based services; and

* Agfa Healthcare is demonstrating a mobile direct radiography mobile digital X-ray unit--awaiting FDA approval--that can be moved to a bedside in the emergency or surgical units and operated by one person.
