ICDD is keeping a close watch on the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

The health and welfare of our conference attendees, exhibitors, and staff are of top priority. At the present time, there is no plan to cancel or postpone the Denver X-ray Conference. If you are a registered attendee, workshop instructor, session chair, invited speaker, or participating exhibitor, we will notify you immediately of any changes. 

Please do not be discouraged from submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation, or applying for exhibit space. If in the future your abstract submission needs to be withdrawn, there will be no penalty. If the decision is made to cancel the conference, a full refund of registration fees and exhibit booth fees will be issued.

The abstract submission deadline has been extended until 30 March 2020.

Attention DXC Attendees and Exhibitors!

Please be aware of a scam that is unfortunately very common to the conference industry, “Booking Pirates”.

These are people that will contact you by phone and email and ask you to book your hotel reservation through their service.
This is a scam.
DXC does not book hotel rooms for participants. Everyone is responsible for making their own hotel reservation through our group room block. Again, no one affiliated with the conference will ever contact you to book a hotel room. You can safely and securely book your room through the Travel page of the DXC website.


The 69th Annual Denver X-ray Conference will be held in the Washington, DC metro area at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Rockville, Maryland, USA
