On July 13, the Ministry of Health issued a note with guidelines for rationalizing the use of iodinated contrast. The subject has also been on the agenda of webinar sponsored by CBR in june and from interview given by the scientific director of the College, Luciana Costa, to Record TV.
The program of the 51st Brazilian Congress of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging will include scientific activities such as: hot topics, Point and Counterpoint, How do I report?, Rare and challenging cases, tumor board, What's new in the literature about..., Arenas, Marathon, Exhibition of Scientific Papers and much more. All in an environment focused on promoting broad interaction among participants.
