InfoRAD, a term that stands for informatics in radiology, is a demonstration and learning area set up every year at RSNA's Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting to showcase applications of computers and other electronic tools in radiologic education, information management, and quality assurance. The learning center had its origins in 1986 when the RSNA Board of Directors established the Electronic Communications Committee (ECC) to study the potential uses of electronics in the practice of radiology. At the 1987 scientific assembly, Anne G. Osborn, MD, from the University of Utah, exhibited a computer-based teaching module in neuroanatomy concerning the sella turcica. This popular scientific exhibit used an interactive videodisc that allowed viewers to choose options displayed on a monitor by touching the screen.
