Chelsea R. Samson, MD — a diagnostic radiology chief resident at MIR — attended RSNA for the first time, taking in what the annual meeting has to offer a budding trainee. “It’s like a reunion,” she says. “I think everyone has this common interest in innovation and learning, so it’s really motivating to be here.” Samson will remain at MIR for a fellowship in musculoskeletal imaging and intervention.
