Radiologists and radiographers require a comprehensive knowledge of advances in all imaging modalities pertaining to children. The renewed emphasis and public awareness of issues pertaining to radiation exposure and dose reduction techniques, makes this event extremely timely and relevant to our daily practice.
The programme covers four categories namely Abdominal, Thoracic, Cardiac Imaging and Radiation Protection in Children.
The chosen topics will give insight and guidelines into the management of both common and challenging conditions encountered in the paediatric patient.
We are proud to bring you a special Masterclass dedicated to all aspects of Emergency Paediatric Radiology which will be held on Thursday, 3 November and will require a separate registration. There will also be an interactive case-based interpretation sessions in the afternoons led by the international faculty and lectures on new horizons in paediatric abdominal, cardiac and thoracic imaging.
The free paper session for the 2016 RSSA Travel Award of R50 000.00 will take place during the course. There will also be a scientific and poster exhibition with prizes of R15,000.00, R10,000.00 and R5,000.00 respectively.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of all our sponsors. Without sponsors events like these cannot be hosted and their commitment to Radiology training and teaching is appreciated and indispensable. Thank you very much.
We extend a special word of gratitude and welcome to the Faculty members; Kassa Darge, Edward Lee, Beverley Newman, Kimberly Applegate and Savvas Andronikou.
