The RSNA is accepting nominations for speakers at a new Fast 5 session to be launched at this year's annual meeting.

The Fast 5 session will feature five transformational topics presented by five speakers for five minutes each at the Arie Crown Theater in McCormick Place on Thursday, November 30, at 1:30 p.m., according to the RSNA.

Now through August 10, RSNA will take suggestions from members on nonclinical topics, such as health policy, new ways to use social media, or what inspires exploration, inventions, and the transformation of medical imaging. The Fast 5 speakers will then be determined by online voting to take place between August 15 and August 24, the RSNA said.
