CHICAGO - Although still not close to prepandemic levels, attendance at the RSNA meeting continues to rebound.
The RSNA has announced that it expects 30,907 in-person attendees in Chicago, including 16,045 professionals. Overall, total advance registration was 34,385, including 19,485 professionals.
Although still well off the final attendance of 52,000 in 2019 prior to COVID, those estimates are still up sharply from the 19,000 in-person attendees that were expected in Chicago before the 2021 RSNA meeting. Ultimately, the final attendee count for last year's conference was 29,273, including just over 23,000 onsite at McCormick Place.
