Due to SARS-CoV-2 pandemic outbreak, all radiological academic and scientific meetings have been cancelled. Several societies have decided to go “virtual”, looking for the best platform and formula to organise such an event.
The purpose of this survey is to explore perceptions and preferences about this conversion to virtual meetings.

The survey will take just 5 minutes to be completed.

This survey is anonymous and no personal data will be recorded. If you have any questions or suggestions, please be free to write at gennaro.danna@gmail.com

Thank you in advance for your collaboration.
