The Radiological Society of North America’s (Oak Brook, IL, USA) 98th scientific assembly and annual meeting (RSNA 2012) highlighted the best in radiologic education and research and the world’s largest technical exhibit floor space for medical imaging technology.

RSNA 2012, which was held in McCormick Place, Chicago (IL, USA) on November 25-30, 2012, emphasized RSNA’s ongoing focus on improving patient care through radiology education and research. “The RSNA annual meeting is the world’s premier scientific and educational forum in radiology, bringing together more radiology and medical imaging professionals than any other venue,” said RSNA executive director, Mark Watson.

Professional attendees could choose during the meeting from 1,863 scientific presentations, 235 refresher courses, 86 multisession courses, 40 series courses, 45 informatics courses, 2,111 education exhibits and 1,257 scientific posters, as well as many special lectures. Technical exhibits at RSNA 2012 filled three buildings of McCormick Place, with 649 exhibits in 444,900 square feet of space, including 90 first-time exhibitors.

Official registration figures for RSNA 2012 reported total attendance at 53,778, including 26,154 professional attendees, 21,288 exhibitors, and 6,336 attendees classified as “guest” or “other.” Of the professional attendees, 36% were from outside North America. Exhibitor attendance and professional numbers were on same level as with earlier years.

The RSNA 2012 Virtual Meeting attracted more than 6,000 attendees from 107 countries and provided access to nearly 50 scientific and education sessions and courses. “RSNA 2012 was very successful,” Mr. Watson said. “As a consequence of the uncertain global economic climate, we anticipated a decrease in overall attendance. However, professional and exhibitor attendance remained strong, and RSNA member attendance increased over that of 2011.”

RSNA is an association of more than 51,000 radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, and related scientists, encouraging excellence in patient care and healthcare delivery through research, education, and technologic advanced.
