Health & safety

As a health care organization, RSNA is strongly committed to protecting the health and safety of all meeting attendees and personnel. We will continue to monitor recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and state/local health authorities and will adjust health and safety protocols as needed.

RSNA will not require vaccine validation for RSNA 2022.

RSNA 2022 will be a mask-friendly environment. Attendees may choose whether to wear a face mask based on their personal health assessment and comfort level onsite. RSNA strives to deliver a welcoming environment for all. We ask attendees to be respectful of other people’s choices.

At this point in time, masks are not required in most locations or on public transportation in Chicago. However, local recommendations and guidelines are subject to change. Please continue to check this page for the latest updates.

RSNA 2022 Virtual Access will feature nearly 100% of all annual meeting programming. Virtual access is ideal for those who cannot attend in person, as well as for attendees who wish to maximize their onsite experience. Review our pricing and registration page to find a registration package that works best for you.
