November 29, 2020 — RSNA President James P. Borgstede, M.D., officially welcomed virtual attendees to RSNA20 this morning. He stated, "In times like these, it's more important than ever to come together." In his President's Address: One World, One Radiology Community-A Vision for Tomorrow, Borgstede addressed the global radiology community and shared his vision for tomorrow, and thoughts on how radiologists can collaborate to improve healthcare for patients around the world. 

He discussed how the highly resourced world of radiology inventions, products, and professionalism are conduits for health care improvement worldwide. These conduits connect our radiology community domestically and across the globe, and have the powerful potential to equalize care for all patients, regardless of where they live and seek healthcare. He stated that all patients require and deserve basic healthcare, but there is a deep chasm between the resourced and under-resourced worlds of healthcare. "We in radiology are fortunate to have so many advantages that can make us a worldwide specialty. We need to put to work the power and potential of our professional and technical resources to close the gap in the quality of care across the world," he stated. "Achieving the vision of a collaborative, more equitable radiology world will not be without its challenges. Each of us will have to make a conscious choice to collaborate worldwide. We must all decide to learn from each other, and we will need to be good stewards of our technology. Winners in our equal, one-world of radiology will be radiologists who learn the habits, processes, and skills most quickly to adapt to globalization. Winning organizations will have the infrastructure, education, and governance to technologically innovate. The ultimate winners will be our patients."
