Innovative medical imaging research and new technologies made their debut at RSNA’s 107th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting (RSNA 2021) held at McCormick Place in Chicago (Nov. 28-Dec. 2) by the Radiological Society of North America (Oak Brook, IL, USA).

More than 19,000 attendees registered to attend the event, with another 4,000 attending virtually. RSNA 2021: Redefining Radiology showcased new ideas and technologies that redefine what it means to work as a radiologist. The event required proof of COVID-19 vaccination from all in-person attendees, exhibitors, staff and contractors. In addition, face masks were mandatory while onsite at the meeting. Returning to McCormick Place after being held virtually in 2020, RSNA 2021 featured over 2,000 scientific presentations and posters, 1,500 education exhibits and more than 300 educational courses.

Popular features like the Image Interpretation Session and Case of the Day offered dynamic experiences for attendees. Another highlight was the rapid-fire “Fast 5” session, featuring brisk and engaging presentations on how medical insight and research are driving the future of radiology. The meeting also offered inspiring plenary sessions and more than 50 scientific presentations, lectures, courses and exhibits on diversity, equity and inclusion.

As the world’s largest medical imaging conference, RSNA 2021 provided the ultimate show floor with more than 500 exhibitors - including over 100 first-time RSNA exhibitors -demonstrating the latest medical imaging technologies in CT, MRI, artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing, and more. The Technical Exhibition included the expansive AI Showcase and Theater, as well as the Imaging AI in Practice demonstration, the 3D Printing and Mixed Reality Showcase, Innovation Theater, First-time Exhibitor Pavilion, Educators Row, Recruiters Row and the Virtual Exhibitor Lounge.

Meeting extras included the “Zen Zone,” a Professional Portrait Studio and lively entertainment scheduled at various locations throughout the week, including the Grand Concourse, the Discovery Theater and the Connections Center. RSNA 2021 offered a wealth of industry programming on tap, including corporate symposia, “lunch and learns,” virtual industry and product presentations, vendor workshops and AI Theater presentations. RSNA’s robust virtual meeting component allowed those who are unable to attend in person and those who don’t meet the vaccine requirement to participate in the meeting remotely. The Virtual Meeting offered 100% of eligible meeting programming with on-demand content through April 30, 2022.

“The RSNA Board of Directors is extremely pleased by the advance registration numbers,” said RSNA President Mary C. Mahoney, MD. “After two challenging years, our attendees were ready to return to Chicago for the world’s leading imaging forum and to engage with the state-of-the-art technical exhibition. We are thrilled to provide them with an extraordinary meeting experience - featuring a comprehensive mix of science and education programming - while taking great care to protect their health and safety.”
