Dear Symposium registrants,
In light of the recent cancellation of the 2020 SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium, your registration fee will be refunded. Additionally, if you purchased a ticket to the President's Gala, that, too, will be refunded. Given the number of registrants, it will take several weeks to process refund requests. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
