Attendee Driven Changes Planned for Future RSNA Annual Meetings

As we look forward to RSNA 2019, RSNA continues to evaluate, evolve and enhance plans for future annual meetings.

Keeping pace with the rapidly progressing field of radiology and adapting to the changing needs of our members and meeting attendees are important goals for RSNA. We are developing plans to deliver several experience-enhancing changes over the next two years. This effort will include enhancements across all aspects of the meeting — both onsite and virtual, including technical exhibits, educational and scientific programming, and meeting-related technology. Some improvements will be implemented as early as 2020, while more complex initiatives, requiring longer planning, will be introduced at RSNA 2021.

Based on attendee feedback and meeting data, RSNA 2021 will conclude at the end of Thursday, discontinuing Friday educational programming. Additionally, based on feedback from exhibitors, the technical exhibition will change from five days to four days in 2021.

With a record 13,419 abstract submissions for RSNA 2019, the annual meeting planning committees are dedicated to ensuring that the new schedule will continue to deliver a high-quality annual meeting experience, filled with innovation, stimulating education programs, the field’s top science and the latest technological advances in a format that reflects the fast-paced lifestyle of RSNA meeting attendees.

Your Board of Directors is committed to presenting the best forum for exploring cutting-edge technology, learning about the latest discoveries, and connecting with radiology thought leaders and colleagues near and far. The Board is excited about changes underway and welcomes your comments. Please email
