*(OAK BROOK, Ill.) September 20, 2010  -- *The Radiological 
Society of North America (RSNA) has united with Carbon Footprint

to create an individual yearly print subscription (including 
printing and mailing) of the journals- -- RSNA and 
Carbonfootprint.com provides a choice to pledge towards a range 
of different carbon offsetting programs, including projects which 
provide both environmental and humanitarian benefits, across 
global locations including Africa and the Americas.

This recent collaboration is just one of the many efforts by RSNA 
to better support the environment. The 1996 construction of the 
Society's headquarters building was spearheaded by a 
LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)

environmentally friendly features such as sediment/erosion 
control, public transportation access, storm water management, 
light pollution reduction and minimum energy performance.

RSNA is also committed to hosting one of the greenest and 
cleanest trade shows in the industry. Some of the RSNA Annual 
Meeting's many green initiatives include offering all print
