March 25, 2020 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) Annual Meeting (ACR 2020) is transitioning this year to a completely virtual meeting that prioritizes ACR governance activities. ACR 2020 will be held entirely online May 16-19.

“The health and safety of ACR members and the patients they serve, as well as that of ACR employees and local hospitality staff, are the primary reason for this transition. We support and participate in ongoing national efforts to reduce coronavirus (COVID-19) risk. As such, the ACR will empower ACR 2020 participants to take part online,” said Geraldine B. McGinty, M.D., MBA, FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors.   

The ACR 2020 virtual meeting will enable participants to take part in and experience:

  • ACR Caucus Meetings
  • ACR Elections
  • Consideration of ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards
  • Consideration of ACR Policy Resolutions
  • Livestreaming of Presidential Address and Chair’s Report
  • Awarding of ACR Gold Medals and Honorary Fellowships 

“The move to a virtual meeting allows us to continue to carry out important ACR business while ensuring the health and safety of those involved. The move to a virtual meeting is the right thing to do during this difficult time for health care providers, those we serve and our nation,” said Richard Duszak, Jr., M.D., FACR, speaker of the ACR Council.

In accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, the annual RADPAC Gala and Capitol Hill Day events will not take place.

Please review the ACR 2020 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and ACR 2020 Online Program for more information.
