 The São Paulo Society of Radiology and Image Diagnosis (SPR) is carrying out the 50th Paulista Day of Radiology – Special Edition Online (JPR 2020 Virtual). The event started with the first Plenary Session and Opening Live, on Wednesday, 27, on the JPR 2020 website (www.jpr2020.org.br). On that occasion, the president of the SPR, Dr. Mauro José Brandão da Costa, led the opening of the event, followed by the president of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Dr. James Borgstede. Then Dr. Renato Adam Mendonça, Director of Institutional Relations at SPR, moderated the Session, welcoming Dr. Carolyn C. Meltzer, who is Director of Science at RSNA, Coordinator of the RSNA COVID-19 Task Force, and Chair of the Department of Radiology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. In her presentation, she will speak about the “Current State of COVID-19 and Diagnostic Imaging from an RSNA perspective”. JPR 2020 Virtual takes place in two editions, with each edition having two phases. See the table below summarizing this organization of the program:
First edition Phase 1: Lives and Plenary Sessions on the JPR website from 05/27 to 06/24

  More details about JPR 2020 Virtual The contents presented in the Plenary Sessions and lives will be presented once a day, from Monday to Thursday at 6:30 pm and on Fridays at 5 pm. Live access to this content will be through the website www.jpr2020.org.br, free and open to all interested parties, being recommended only to medical professionals. These contents will be recorded for later inclusion in the collection of JPR 2020 Virtual, an exclusive page within the new SPR Digital Video Library, which is even being remodeled by SPR and will be relaunched on a new platform on June 24th, marking the delivery of the first part of the project's collection. In addition to lives and plenary sessions, the JPR 2020 Virtual will have more than 300 new classes in its schedule, recorded remotely, with teachers and themes from the original JPR program. Such classes will be organized in the following areas: 2nd Conference on Interventional Radiology; Abdominal, Digestive and Genitourinary; Head and neck; Cardiovascular; Woman's Image; Informatics in Radiology; Breast; Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging; Skeletal muscle; Neuroradiology; Oncology; Pediatrics; Thorax, and General Ultrasonography. The program will also have classes from the initiative Latin Safe, videos of practical demonstrations of the Ultrasound, Intervention and Innovation Villages and presentations of Free Themes, content that brings together the scientific production of the main Diagnostic Imaging centers in the country. The complete JPR Virtual schedule is available on the website www.jpr2020.org.br. It is important to highlight that the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) maintains its partnership with SPR supporting the JPR 2020 Virtual. This support was decisive in enabling the participation of 20 foreign professors, previously confirmed in the face-to-face program, now reconfirmed in the online program. 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 the SPR maintains an educational and scientific cooperation agreement: AIRP, ACR (Colombia), SAR (Argentina) and SOCHRADI ( Chile). It is also important to point out that the JPR 2020 Virtual has the support of companies bayer It is 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 physicians and radiologists across the country, in a year when face-to-face events will not be possible, but in which quality knowledge remains essential.
