TexRAD to Attend RSNA 2014

TexRAD is attending the 100th scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America on the 30th November to 5th December 2014 themed ‘A century of transforming medicine’ at the McCormick Place in Chicago, USA. 

Dr. Balaji Ganeshan will be presenting a number of TexRAD related papers particularly in colorectal cancer prognosis and response evaluation at RSNA. The details of papers and presentations related to TexRAD to be presented at RSNA this year are given below.

We hope to meet you at the RSNA meeting. Please email us ( / to specify some convenient dates and times and we will ensure that Dr. Balaji Ganeshan (Scientific-Director, TexRAD Ltd) and/or Mike Hayball (Managing-Director CCI Ltd) are able to give you their full attention. We can give a TexRAD scientific presentation and software demonstration (which includes Texture-processor and a novel Data-Mining tool to undertake the statistical analyses and identify interesting parameters leading to research publications!). In addition, we will discuss how TexRAD can assist you to enhance your research output in your specific areas of interest similar to the number of other prestigious research and clinical institutions around the world.

In addition, we will be attending Her Majesty’s Consul General’s reception at 6pm on Monday December 1st.

We look forward to hearing from you and meeting with you at RSNA!
