RSSA neuroradiology and body imaging advances Congress.

One of the mandates of the Radiological Society of South Africa (RSSA) is to benefit the medical community and in turn patients by bringing world leaders in imaging to South Africa. In this vein, the RSSA Neuroradiology and Body Imaging Advances Congress will take place at the eponymous Sandton Convention Centre from 28 to 30 August this year. Jointly arranged and funded by the RSSA, the Radiological Society of North America International Visiting Professors Programme (RSNA IVP) and the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) Global Outreach Programme, the congress reflects the cutting edge of neuroradiology and advanced imaging strategies in other body areas.

The programme is very comprehensive and well balanced, and will be presented by an international faculty of seven distinguished radiologists from Europe and the USA; their lectures will be available on CD to all participants. There will also be a free paper session, as well as a poster exhibition. The best paper by a South African junior radiologist or registrar (and RSSA member) will qualify for the RSSA Travel Award of R20 000. In addition, the Medical Imaging Society of South Africa (MISA) sponsorship provides for a refund of R1 000 to each of up to 20 registrars who incur long-distance travel and accommodation expenses in attending the congress; this is awarded to the first 20 registrars who register before the early-bird deadline of 17 July.

A course of this nature is essential for all radiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychiatrists, neuro-oncologists, vascular surgeons and radiographers. The emphasis will be upon the rational and cost-effective application of, mainly, advanced MR technology.

Programme, booking and accommodation details are on the website www.rssaneurorad2009.
