Q&A with RSNA president Dr. James Borgstede

HCBN: Can you talk about the annual meeting and what to expect?
JB: The most obvious change is that the annual meeting will be virtual. We had the vision and foresight to initiate a virtual meeting several years ago. This year, the virtual meeting is free to members. We’ll still have our plenary, scientific and educational sessions. We have opportunities to interact with vendors virtually. The RSNA has had the benefit of learning from the meetings other associations had earlier this year. Having our meeting later has allowed us to learn what works well and what doesn’t.

The title of this year’s meeting is, “Human Insight and Visionary Medicine”. We’ve planned a sensational virtual format. It allows everyone to participate in our annual meeting from the comfort of their home or office and do it at their own convenience. We’ve extended the live meeting to seven days — November 29th through December 5th. So that includes two weekend days — Sunday at the beginning and Saturday at the end, to allow attendees to balance their meeting attendance with a full work schedule. We’re going to have on-demand programming through April 2021, so if people miss something, they can come back and take a look at it. We have some unique opportunities where we can offer all attendees a chance to pick up substantial CMEs. There will be 300 hours of instructional education with live Q & A for many of these sessions. The meeting includes 100 science sessions with additional digital posters and educational exhibits to view on demand. AI as you and I have talked about, continues to trend. There are also five hot-topic sessions related to COVID 19.
