The IPR congress has been granted 27 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). The meeting has been planned with the requirements of the EACCME in mind. Following the agreement signed between UEMS/EACCME and the American Medical Association, the ECMECs are recognized as PRA Class 1 Credits by the AMA. Delegates should only claim credit appropriate with their participation in the event. All presenters at the congress will disclose any conflict of interest.
One of two parallel sessions on the first afternoon of the congress, this summit takes delegates through the latest updates in paediatric ultra sound techniques and applications. With a series of short presentations from some of the world’s foremost practitioners this session is bound to have broad appeal to most delegates.
Always a topical subject the other parallel summit will focus on radiation safety with sessions on CT dose measurements, protocols and interventional radiation to mention a few topics. The speakers offer a breadth of experience that it would be difficult to find anywhere else. The session concludes with a debate entitled ‘Should we consent patients for radiation?’, a session that will be bound to be topical, lively and educational.
One of the highlights of previous IPR Congresses this entertaining session will involve two teams pitching against each other in a fast moving competition to gain the coveted title of Olympic Champions. The master of ceremonies will be Laurent Garel from Canada who has the unenviable task of keeping the two teams under control in a fast moving game of skill, knowledge and no doubt some subterfuge, an event not to be missed.
Delegates will benefit from a choice of activities around advanced imaging techniques. Within the exhibition area there will be a series of workstations where delegates can benefit of working ‘hands on’ with different systems manned by experts from the imaging companies and under the guidance of a paediatric radiologist expert. The participants will be able to learn how to apply the latest workstation techniques for advanced paediatric imaging and analysis.In addition there will be a ‘Read with the Expert’ session on one of the lunch times where experts will present a range of paediatric cases on different platforms highlighting workstation software, tool functions and software. There will be a few ‘tricks of the trade’ to be learned in this interesting session. Delegates will have the option of booking a session once they have registered for the congress.
The younger members of the paediatric radiology profession have an opportunity to attend their own scientific session and then meet in a social environment. Alan Daneman from Toronto will present the JESPR/JPR lecture before the group adjourns to the Sway Club. This evening is open to residents, recent graduates of fellowship programmes and other recently joining the paediatric radiology societies.
From Saturday to Tuesday there is a series of six sunrise sessions each morning. With two or three lectures in a smaller and more intimate setting It’s a great way to start the day. Grouped into MRI, Neuroradiology, Foetal, Cardiac, Nuclear and Interventional Radiology these popular the main imaging topics are covered in depth.
The conference programme runs over five days. Each morning there are ‘Sunrise’ workshop sessions both in the Hilton Hotel and also at the adjacent St. Mary’s Hospital from 7am – 8.15.
The main conference sessions are then held in the Hilton Hotel with the morning session as a single plenary session and in the afternoon the programme divides into two different venues for concurrent sessions.
The details of the programme for each day are available on the individual programme pages which are accessed from the programme tab of the web site.
