Friday 06 November 2020
This was the SRS’s first virtual meeting. Our original plan was for the meeting to be hosted in Aberdeen, to coincide with our programme celebrating 40 years of clinical MRI. We are delighted that we can still share the talks virtually, from the home of clinical MR imaging.
The 2020 McGibbon Speaker was Professor Fiona Gilbert, speaking on “MRI past, present and future”. Prof Gilbert started her radiology career in Aberdeen, responsible for the National Breast Screening Programme for Grampian. She worked with MRI research in Aberdeen, before moving to the University of Cambridge. She has published many papers and books on clinical MRI, particularly in breast imaging, and has held roles in RCR, SIGN, NICE, the Scottish Cancer Group and the MRC.
Our other speakers included Prof Francis Smith, who pioneered the clinical application of MRI in Aberdeen in the early 1980s; Prof David Lurie, Dr Mary Joan Macleod and Dr Gillian Macnaught on the latest developments of MRI and hybrid imaging; Dr Clare Devlin on medicolegal aspects of radiology and Dr Thillainayagam Muthukumar and Dr David Summers on clinical applications in MSK and neuroimaging.
Attendance at this meeting was equivalent to 4 CPD points in the self-declared Royal College of Radiologists’ CPD scheme.
Anne Hollman Award
The SRS Council this year took the difficult decision to suspend the Anne Hollman Award. Given the abnormal events of 2020 and disruption to normal practice, research opportunities, and many scientific meetings, we recognised that the opportunities for trainees have been limited.
We look forward to many excellent submissions and presentations in future meetings.
Recordings of selected talks have been kindly been made available by many of our speakers. These can be reviewed by attendees and other SRS members at this page (password protected). Please note that the videos are not licensed for sharing or reproduction.

Dr Anjali Nandakumar (Grampian) arranged this programme and we are delighted that we will be able to welcome speakers from across the country to be able to deliver these sessions to you virtually.
