From October 12 to 14, the CBR 17 - Brazilian Congress of Radiology will be held, an annual event organized by the Brazilian College of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (CBR). Again, it will be in Curitiba (PR), at the Expo Unimed Convention Center. Registration will open soon.
The content of the event will feature several new features - there will be the inclusion of themes that were not part of previous editions, such as Pediatric Radiology and Professional Defense. However, one of the great advances will be made in the Breast course, thanks to a partnership that the CBR Mammography Commission has signed with the Ibero-American Society of Breast Imaging (SIBIM) - it will have a real impact on the schedule of classes.
“SIBIM is a medical-scientific society that aims to bring breast radiology specialists closer to Latin American countries, as well as to contribute to the improvement of the scientific and educational level of imaging diagnosis and breast intervention in all its aspects. ”Explains Dr. Linei Urban, coordinator of the Mammography Commission and one of those responsible for negotiating the partnership.
With the partnership, SIBIM brings, simultaneously to CBR 17, its 11th Ibero-American Breast Imaging Congress. She recalls that several countries have hosted their congress, the most recent being Ecuador (2014), the Dominican Republic (2015) and Uruguay (2016). Its official languages are Portuguese and Spanish, usually hosting over 300 participants.
“Brazil has been actively participating in these events. But this year we will have the privilege of being the host country. We have already confirmed several names of international speakers, such as doctors Melcior Sentís (Spain), Javier Rodriguez Lucero (Argentina), Ruby Espejo (Mexico), Javeir Romero (Colombia) and Miguel Pinochet (Chile), ”he says.
Dr. Dante Luiz Escuissato, CBR's scientific director, believes that, due to this alliance, nine to ten speakers for the Congress should come to Brazil. He points out that "medical congresses are a point of convergence of the specialty and it is in them that the technical and scientific innovations are presented".
The main topics covered will be the presentation patterns of the lesions in the various breast imaging exams, as well as discussions on interventional techniques, use of BI-RADS® and anatomopathological correlation. There will also be a session on safety in the use of new technologies and contrasts and breast. “We count on everyone's presence!” Invites Dr. Linei.
