It is important to highlight that North American Radiological Society (RSNA) maintains its partnership with SPR by supporting JPR 2020 Virtual. This support was decisive to enable the participation of 20 foreign teachers, previously confirmed in the on-site program, now reconfirmed in the online. In addition to these guests, 11 other foreign professors will also participate in the program by recording classes remotely, all of them representatives of international medical entities with which SPR has an educational and scientific cooperation agreement: AIRP, ACR (Colombia), SAR (Argentina) and SOCHRADI ( Chile).

It is also relevant to emphasize that the JPR 2020 Virtual counts on the support of companies Bayer and Canon, in the gold category, and Mindray, in the bronze category. This support was essential for this important project, which promotes the scientific updating of resident doctors and radiologists from all over the country, in a year in which face-to-face events will not be possible, but in which quality knowledge remains essential.
