RSNA Statement on Crisis in Ukraine
RSNA provides aid to our members, colleagues, friends and family in the region
The invasion of Ukraine has caused heartbreaking loss of life and has posed a massive disruption in providers’ ability to deliver medical care to those who need it most. With hospital emergency departments under siege, medical personnel in Ukraine are struggling to provide patient care under the harshest of conditions. We have taken the following steps to support these brave caregivers and their patients during this devastating time:
To assist in providing desperately needed medical care and supplies to Ukraine amid the ongoing humanitarian crisis, RSNA is making a monetary donation to Direct Relief. Direct Relief has provided more than 48 tons of medical aid to Ukraine, including a wide range of medicine, equipment and supplies.
RSNA is offering radiologists in the region support to meet current patient care and education needs. Through the reach of its global membership, RSNA has been connecting radiologists in need with personal guidance, clinical expertise and mentorship. Any radiologist in the region in need of assistance is encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
RSNA also provides its international members direct access to educational resources and content on emergency medicine, battlefield injuries and crisis leadership.
We encourage our members to join us in donating to provide critically needed medical and humanitarian aid in Ukraine and surrounding regions.
- Direct Relief is working with Ukraine’s Ministry of Health to provide requested medical aid while preparing to offer longer-term assistance to people displaced or affected by the war.
- Doctors Without Borders provides supplies and remote training to surgeons in key hospitals in eastern Ukraine.
- International Rescue Committee supports displaced children and families with vital supplies.

Our thoughts remain with our members, colleagues, friends, family and staff with loved ones in the region, as we continue to hope for a peaceful resolution to this conflict and humanitarian crisis.
