This year the BIR Annual Congress will cover a broad range of topics, including infectious diseases, cardiac imaging, imaging of the aorta, pulmonary diseases, MSK, neuroimaging, GI radiology and a special session with presentations from the industry regarding the development of the hardware, software and chemicals that we use in our daily routine.
Every session starts with a special lecture covering the historical perspectives of the topics or diseases covered in the subsequent lectures. We have selected outstanding speakers who will guide you through a journey from the early discoveries and concepts, to the modern knowledge and to the predicted future of diagnosis and treatment or technology on each topic.
