Leading radiologists from India recently gathered in Bangalore to participate in brainstorming sessions focused on
paediatric neuroradiology during the 8th National Midterm CME-ISPR 2017 held at Columbia Asia Hospital, Whitefield.
The talks and discussions at this prestigious conference were aimed at highlighting relevant concepts in anatomy and
embryology, unique imaging challenges and solutions as well as easy systematic approaches to help radiologists perform their work efficiently.
Organised by Columbia Asia Radiology Group in collaboration with the Indian Society of Paediatric Radiology (ISPR), there were a series of engaging brain storming knowledge sharing sessions and discussions held for knowledge enhancement on paediatric neuroradiology, said Dr Nandakumar Jairam, Chairman, CEO and Group Medical Director, Columbia Asia Hospitals-India.
The event offered delegates a platform to gain knowledge and interact with the leading specialists in this niche area of radiology.
“There were interactive sessions oriented towards enriching knowledge of radiologists, particularly in the field of paediatric neuroradiology, which is considered a difficult speciality,” said Dr Harsha Chadaga, Organising Chairman ISPR & HOD Columbia Asia Radiology Group.
According to Dr Jayaraj Govindaraj, National President, Indian Society of Paediatric Radiology, the event aimed at creating “awareness about the rapidly changing science and more efficient diagnostic algorithms in neuroscience among the healthcare providers, clinicians and radiologists”.
The conference also saw prominent radiologist Dr Manohar Shroff from The Hospital of Sick Children, Toronto, presiding over a lecture on paediatric stroke imaging through telepresence. He also shared with delegates his clinical and research knowledge on neonatal imaging, paediatric demyelination and quality assurance in radiology.
