Autumn Meeting / AGM 2018
Many thanks to all who attended this year’s Scottish Radiological Society Autumn Meeting and AGM at BT Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh.
Highlights from the meeting are available by searching #scotrad18 on Facebook and Twitter.
We were delighted to have Dr Sujal Desai delivering this year’s McGibbon Lecture, our annual keynote presentation. Dr Desai is a chest radiologist from Royal Brompton Hospital, London and gave a detailed and useful talk on how to approach and describe interstitial lung diseases.
Consultants and trainees from SE Scotland also presented with updates on MSK, spinal, and cardiac imaging. The past and future of radiology in Scotland were also discussed; with efforts to salvage old films from the Edinburgh hospitals, and the experiences of training and trainers and what the future setup for registrars may look like in Scotland.
Our final session was from Investec Wealth and Investment Ltd with financial advice for radiologists.
Attendance at this meeting was equivalent to 5 RCR self-certified CPD points.
