RSNA Recap

Dec. 13, 2018

By Mohsina Yusuf

From November 24 through November 30, radiologists from around the world met at the 104th Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Illinois. This year was unlike years prior, as RSNA took place in the midst of a winter storm, causing many presenters to miss the annual meeting. 


Despite the weather, two members of Emory Radiology’s Communications and Creative Services team went out to Chicago to provide social media presence through our department’s Twitter account (@EmoryRadiology) using a personalized #EmoryRSNA18 hashtag. The tweets averaged 414 likes, 47 retweets with a 131 thousand retweet reach, and 176 mentions with a 94.9 thousand mention reach. Mention reach means 94.9 thousand Twitter users potentially saw @EmoryRadiology Twitter handle mentioned in a tweet by someone they follow. Similarly, retweet reach reflects the potential number of people who saw a retweeted @EmoryRadiology post by someone they follow.
