The Breast Module of the Brazilian Congress of Radiology (CBR 17) has the partnership of the Ibero-American Society of Breast Imaging (SIBIM) in its organization, an important ally to contribute with a differentiated and quality content. Dr. Melcior Sentis, president of the entity, gave an interview about this performance.
Dr. Sentis is currently a Senior Consultant Radiologist at UDIAT Center Diagnòstic at Sanitary Corporation Parc Taulí, in Sabadell, Spain, responsible for the area of breast and gynecological radiology and chairman of the Institutional Committee for the Evaluation of Assistive Technologies. Her main research topics are: Magnetic resonance imaging and molecular imaging in breast cancer; Interventional procedures in breast cancer; and Development of new imaging modalities in breast cancer. He is also a reviewer and member of the editorial board of national and international journals, and author of scientific works.
CBR - As our partner at this event, how important are partnerships like this for SIBIM?
Dr. Melcior - SIBIM, as an Ibero-American Society, is always interested in making synergies with all Radiology associations in America. It is a great opportunity and another step in your vocation to be a forum for all radiologists who are dedicated to diagnosing breast disease. It is, finally, an honor and a challenge.
CBR - Does SIBIM make alliances with entities from different countries frequently?
Dr. Melcior - Yes. We hold specific events, but we consider it of great value to participate and contribute to national congresses, as we are a spokesman for a very important subspecialty of Radiology. Our interest is to add importance.
CBR - What are your expectations for this event?
Dr. Melcior - Brazil is very large and its professional and human capital is of the highest relevance. Our presence at the event not only consolidates bridges of professional collaboration, but also a superior concept of collaboration and participation in training actions. Working together, we learn together - this makes us more professionally capable. We are convinced that this will be a great Congress.
CBR - What will the congressman gain from this partnership?
Dr. Melcior - He will learn about the latest trends, share knowledge with colleagues and have the opportunity to learn a lot about the “state of the art” in breast cancer diagnosis. In addition, it will participate in educational initiatives that go beyond Congress, including the development of educational materials for distribution among Latin American radiologists. Most importantly, together, we will always do better things, and our patients will benefit from our ability to share and unify criteria.
CBR - How do you evaluate Breast Radiology practiced in Brazil?
Dr. Melcior - Brazil is one of the major powers in professional radiology and scientific production in Latin America. We can all learn and incorporate knowledge and expertise from your vast experience.
