Autumn 2020 – Virtual SRS


Meeting Date

Friday 06 November 2020


This is the SRS’s first virtual meeting. We are delighted to announce that we will be using the popular Hopin platform for the one day online event.

Details of how to register and join on the day will follow soon.

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 current programme for the event is below – some titles and times may be subject to change.


This year’s McGibbon Speaker will be 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 include 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 Peter Mackenzie on medicolegal aspects of radiology and Dr Thillainayagam Muthukumar and Dr David Summers on clinical applications in MSK and neuroimaging.

Attendance at this meeting will be 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.


Meeting registration will open soon.

You will register on Hopin and a “ticket” will attached to your email account which will provide access to all the talks, networking opportunities and our sponsors’ virtual booths.

The SRS has agreed that this meeting will be free for attendees (depending on demand).


As ever, we are grateful for the ongoing support from a number of our sponsors.

We will have virtual booths for our sponsors with opportunity for you to talk to representatives live on the day, and the possibility to register your interest with them privately.


Dr Anjali Nandakumar (Grampian) has built 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. Dr Struan Wilkie (Grampian) has been supporting the set-up and organisation of the virtual meeting.

If you have any questions about the event please email [email protected] or contact us via Facebook or Twitter, where we will also be posting updates.
