The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA, Oak Brook, IL, USA) has announced that nearly 10,400 scientific and educational abstracts have been submitted for the Society's 108th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting (RSNA 2022). RSNA 2022 will be held from November 27 to December 1, 2022, at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago.
RSNA 2022: Empowering Patients and Partners in Care will showcase the important role of radiology in multidisciplinary patient care. Collaboration within medical teams improves patient quality of care and is a catalyst for better performance in life-changing illnesses and health conditions. The RSNA annual meeting is the world's leading annual radiology forum, and RSNA 2022 will provide a multitude of research presentations and educational opportunities in all subspecialties.
Attendees will be able to learn more about relevant, timely topics - such as artificial intelligence (AI), COVID-19 and health equity - and engage in meaningful networking opportunities throughout the week. Popular meeting features like the Image Interpretation Session, Case of the Day and Fast 5 sessions are returning for 2022. Also back is the Discovery Theater, where attendees can recharge with lively presentations and entertainment. New this year, the Learning Center Theater will offer engaging, interactive presentations throughout the week.
The Technical Exhibits, featuring cutting-edge imaging technologies and software applications, are a highlight of the RSNA annual meeting. More than 490 companies have already reserved 348,000 square feet of exhibition space. Making a return will be the AI Showcase and Theater, with new technologies, practical demonstrations and industry presentations. RSNA 2022 Virtual Access is also available for individuals who are impacted by institutional, corporate or national travel restrictions due to COVID-19. Virtual Access will feature nearly 100% of all programming.
"We very much look forward to an exciting RSNA meeting in 2022," said RSNA president Bruce G. Haffty, M.D. "There is continued enthusiasm for attendance in person, and virtual access to the full program will also be available."
"The keynote plenary speakers will focus on our theme for this year's meeting, "Empowering Patients and Partners in Care," with a goal of raising awareness of the value of the radiological sciences to our patients and multidisciplinary partners in health care," Dr. Haffty said. "Our large portfolio of quality educational sessions, scientific sessions that demonstrate the latest research, and the exciting new technology available in our exhibition halls continue to make the RSNA annual meeting a highly valued experience for our professional community."
