N Reed Dunnick

RSNA President


RSNA’s centennial celebrations begin at the 100th Annual Meeting and Scientific Assembly, 30 November – 5 December.


Centennial Showcase

The Centennial Showcase will be presented “virtually” by Wilhelm Roentgen, who will share an account of the events that sparked a specialty – and how RSNA changed the way we practise medicine. The showcase will also include exhibits on the history of radiology and the RSNA, art exhibits, and invite radiologists to tackle cases of the century with the equipment available at the time.
