AHRA 2023 Celebrates Medical Imaging Management’s Proud Past, Present, and Future

July 17, 2023 – Marlborough, MA

AHRA: The Association for Medical Imaging Management invited its founders, members, corporate partners, and world-class industry exhibitors to be part of the very special celebration that was the AHRA 2023 Annual Meeting andExposition in Indianapolis this July 9-12. More than 700 industry professionals gathered from around the country to both reflect on the past and chart the future of imaging management.

“Like all of health care, the field of medical imaging management faces significant challenges and profound change. Bringing our members and partners together to understand the past and prepare for the future is essential for our success as leaders in this very dynamic environment,” said Brenda DeBastiani, AHRA’s 2023 President.

67 sessions, 9 symposia, and multiple focus groups asked and answered questions and challenges facing today’s imaging and healthcare administrators. Topics ranged from patient safety, to the ROI of AI. In addition, the event paid homage to the early leaders who created the association in the absence of a place to call home; 20 past presidents were on hand to celebrate significant milestones and events.


The exhibit hall featured 138 companies, featuring a wide range of imaging technology and solutions. Canon Medical’s multi-modality showcase housed inside an eighteen-wheeler is an incredible example of meeting patients where they are and serving them what they need. And GE Healthcare won the 2023 AHRA Innovation Award amongst solid competition, proving again that AHRA is the association for innovators, thought-leaders and change agents.


AHRA 2024, scheduled for Orlando, FL, August 4-7, 2024 is aiming for the largest attendance of medical imaging and healthcare administrators of any AHRA Annual Meeting to date.

The 2024 exhibit floor is already 75% sold out, just one indication of what AHRA’s bright future holds. There are many more KPIs pointing in the right direction as well, but it’s the heart of the members that are the best indicator for ongoing success.
