There was a clear excitement from the public, who wanted to enjoy every last possible moment surrounded by the most brilliant radiology professionals in Brazil and the renowned international guest lecturers.
One of the highlights was the Course of Radiology Life Care (AVR), which took place over the three days of the event. Taught mainly by the activity coordinator, Dr. Adonis Manzella, from Pernambuco, the course brought together from residents to the most experienced professionals.
The goal was both to update practitioners on international guidelines and standards and contrast media risks, and to prepare them for an emergency, with practical basic, airway and advanced support activities. Dr. Adonis congratulates the event and believes the CBR “roaming” factor is fundamental. “It is important to give people of the region, with less travel flexibility, an opportunity to participate, and it is always an honor for the city to receive a Brazilian congress, whatever their specialty,” said the Pernambuco radiologist.

Of course, there were also lectures in other languages by the long-awaited CBR 17 international guests. One of them, Spanish who lives in Dallas, Texas, Dr. Ivan Pedrosa, left his first lecture of the day at the Internal medicine happy with the public response. In addition to two classes, he also attended the late afternoon case discussion session, one of the last activities of the event. “It is an honor to see that people woke up early on a Saturday morning to attend my talk,” says the Spaniard.
For the first time at CBR, he also made a point of praising the colleagues he met during the event and believes in the importance of including residents in the activities that were developed. “They are great doctors, and it's great to have time to show resident jobs between classes from experienced professionals. I like it, ”says the European.
The room Gynecology and Obstetrics Ultrasound / Fetal Medicine presented, every day, one of the highest attendance rates of the event. In the room where the module was held, there was also a private environment with live broadcast on the screen to perform procedures during classes, in real time. With a lavalier microphone, experienced physicians were able to show and teach in practice how to perform their exams.
Victor Bonduki, an expert on the subject, was one of the occupants of this technology, and believes it has already become a trend. “It's very interesting, this should already be being done everywhere”, he comments, “the room was full during the practical class”, celebrates.
