Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging Forum will be held in July, in a partnership between CBR and CFM

The event, which will have the theme “Radiological Protection”, will take place on July 5 (Friday), in Brasília, at the Auditorium of the Federal Council of Medicine. It will be an important milestone on the subject, enabling discussion with the CFM on the optimized and justified use of ionizing radiation in imaging exams, in practically all areas. It will be a multidisciplinary discussion, with several representatives involved in the area. Check out the Preliminary Schedule: 8:30 am Accreditation 9 am – 10 am Opening Ceremony
