The future of Latin American radiology looks bright, thanks to economic growth throughout much of the region and the power of collaboration.
RSNA 2010 attendees can learn about these developments during "Latin America Presents," scheduled for Tuesday, November 30, 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The session will begin with an overview of Latin American radiology, exploring collaborations with RSNA and the role of imaging in diseases endemic to the region and conclude with presentations of Latin American radiologic innovations currently being developed.
"This is a great opportunity to learn about Latin American radiology research and clinical and educational activities, as well the region's evolving relationship with RSNA," said Ricardo Garcia Monaco, M.D., a past-president of the Interamerican College of Radiology (CIR).
"Latin America is vast, diverse and unique—the future of the region looks both exciting and challenging," said 2010 RSNA President Hedvig Hricak, M.D., Ph.D, Dr. h.c. "Building on their significant historic and ongoing contributions to the field, Latin American radiologists are ensuring that regional growth translates into increasing investment in major public health issues, including training of healthcare professionals and implementation of cost-effective technologies. I am delighted that the RSNA 2010 annual meeting is honoring the achievements of Latin American radiologists."
