Innovations for Imaging Education & SPIN Academics

November 21st and 22nd, 2019

Innovations for Imaging Education is the annual symposium promoted by Siemens Healthineers Global, which provides educational content for professionals working in the field of diagnostic imaging. 

In its first edition in Brazil, the symposium will be held in partnership with SPIN Academics, a group of five renowned neuroradiologists: Dr. Ajay Taranath, a member of the Australian Pediatric Radiology Society and senior consultant at Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Australia; Dr. Manohar Shroff, Head of the Diagnostic Imaging Department at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto; Dr. Kshitij Mankad, Pediatric Neuroradiology Consultant and Head of GOSH Pediatric Neuroradiology Masterclass; Dr. Özgür Öztekin, Neurologist at Health Science University; Dr. Prasad Hanagandi, neuroradiologist consultant at King Abdulaziz Medical City - Riyadh, works at the Ministry of Health of the National Guard of Saudi Arabia, which seeks to improve the standards of pediatric neuroimaging and neuroradiology around the world. In addition to international speakers, we will also have the participation of renowned Brazilians speakers. 

SPIN

The symposium aims to foster knowledge exchange in the medical community and assist in diagnostic results by sharing ideas and experiences with experts from the neuroimaging and neuroradiology sectors around the world. The combination of didactics and learning, based on case studies, presentations and interactivity and the extensive knowledge of practitioners who will be part of scientific programming, provides added value to the course content and scope.

Topics will be designed to keep up with recent updates and emphasize the neuroradiological clinical approach to intriguing pathologies in medical routine. 

 

Target Audience: radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, pediatricians, resident doctors, biomedicals and medical physicists.
