The meeting was hosted at the Principal Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow.
The event’s programme is available for download as PDF below.
This year’s McGibbon Speaker was Dr Helen Mackie, National Clinical Advisor on Realistic Medicine for the Scottish Government, speaking about Personalising Realistic Medicine.
Artificial intelligence and its role in imaging was a main topic of discussion with Dr Navin Ramachandran joining us from London and the iCAIRD group speaking on developments in Scotland.
Our other main theme was emergency imaging with talks on abdominal, neuro and paediatric emergencies. We also had updates on diffusion imaging in the abdomen and in head-and-neck follow up.
Our trainee research competition, the Anne Hollman Award, was another success with presentations from across Scotland and across the training grades. The 2019 winner was Dr Oli Llewellyn from Edinburgh with his meta-analysis on giant uterine fibroids. We were lucky to have Dr Hollman’s family join us to present the medal on the 20th anniversary of the award.
Following the meeting, iCAIRD sponsored a drinks reception providing an informal opportunity to speak with medical and industry representatives, and to catch up with colleagues from across the country.
Attendance at this meeting was equivalent to 5 self-declared Royal College of Radiologists’ CPD points.
