His appearance was booked earlier this year, said Linda Brooks, senior manager of media relations for RSNA.
"President Clinton is a powerful voice for progress around the world," Brooks told AuntMinnie.com in an e-mail. "He will address an audience of scientists and medical professionals who are engaged in shaping the practice of radiology across the globe."
The specifics of Clinton's address have not been finalized, Brooks said, besides the fact that his address will be a plenary session on Tuesday, November 30, in the Arie Crown Theater in McCormick Place. Attendance will be open to professional attendees by ticket, which will be available this month, according to Brooks.
Other badged attendees, including technical exhibitors, may see the address as guests in simulcast rooms in McCormick Place.
RSNA has had nonradiology speakers at its annual meeting before, including Francis Collins, MD, PhD; Michael Phelps, PhD; and M. Judah Folkman, MD, Brooks said.
