RSNA 2020: Start Here

Follow this guide to get the most from your annual meeting experience

When the RSNA Board of Directors made the decision to shift this year’s annual meeting to an entirely virtual experience, a top priority was making the meeting accessible and easy to use. We have created the robust program you have come to expect from RSNA while keeping the format simple to navigate.


The meeting site ( is designed to quickly get you where you need to be, whether that is browsing the more than 350 educational and science sessions and more than 2,500 scientific posters and educational exhibits, exploring the virtual exhibition to see the latest available products and services, or networking with your peers.


Watch RSNA’s 2020 preview of the all-virtual event filled with fresh opportunities to connect with the global radiology community and get a front row seat to the latest research, education and technological advancements.
