OAK BROOK, Ill. (May 17, 2021) — The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) announced today that 10,378 scientific and educational abstracts were submitted for presentation at its 107th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting (RSNA 2021), to be held November 28 to December 2, 2021, at McCormick Place in Chicago. The large volume of submissions reflects the overwhelming enthusiasm of presenters, faculty and attendees to reconvene in Chicago at the world’s largest radiology forum.

“We have heard from many of our regular attendees and exhibitors that they are excited and ready to get back to Chicago for the RSNA meeting, and we look forward to welcoming them,” said RSNA president Mary C. Mahoney, M.D. “We are planning a robust in-person scientific assembly and technical exhibition, along with a virtual meeting component to enhance attendees’ meeting experience.”

RSNA 2021: Redefining Radiology promises to deliver an outstanding program with a multitude of science, education and CME opportunities for radiology professionals from around the world. Popular features like the Image Interpretation Session, Case of the Day, and the “Fast 5”—brisk and engaging presentations on how medical insight and research are driving the future of radiology—will offer dynamic experiences for attendees. Plenary sessions will feature inspiring and informative talks from luminaries in their fields, and the Discovery Theater returns in 2021 with lively presentations and entertainment.

“This is such a critical time for radiology professionals to develop responses to the rapidly changing healthcare environment,” said Curtis P. Langlotz, M.D., Ph.D., RSNA board liaison for Information Technology and Annual Meeting. “In addition to the outstanding research and abundant educational opportunities available at RSNA 2021, the meeting provides an opportunity to reconnect face-to-face with friends and colleagues to share what we’ve learned over the past two years.”

As the world’s largest medical imaging conference, RSNA 2021 also provides the ultimate show floor for demonstrating the latest medical imaging technologies in CT, MRI, artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing, and more. Exhibitor interest has been strong with 442 companies reserving 312,400 square feet of exhibit space at the first opportunity.

The technical exhibition will once again feature the AI Showcase and Theater, as well as the 3D Printing and Mixed Reality Showcase, the First-time Exhibitor Pavilion, Educators Row and Recruiters Row. Learn more about RSNA 2021 exhibiting and sponsorship opportunities.
