2022 Annual Meeting  

NYRS 2022 Annual Meeting

This conference is designed for radiologists and radiation oncologists in practice and in training as well as other physicians and health professionals interested in medical imaging. The program incorporates all methods of diagnostic imaging, radiologic intervention and radiation oncology with emphasis on state-of-the-art utilization, performance and interpretation. The New York Roentgen Society is a component of the New York State Radiological Society a Chapter of the American College of Radiology.


The New York Roentgen Society (NYRS) was founded in April 1912 to address the scientific and clinical practice concerns of physicians specializing in the new field of radiology. It was created at a time when there were no state radiology societies and the only two national radiology groups, the American Roentgen Ray Society and the American Radium Society, limited their interests to scientific subject matter. In 1914, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, (the German physicist who discovered X-rays in 1895), was awarded an honorary membership at the NYRS, the only American honorary membership he ever accepted. In 1921, another distinguished scientist (and Nobel Prize laureate) spoke at theNYRS meeting and accepted an honorary membership: Dr. Marie Sklodowska Curie.
