LEADING RADIOLOGICAL SPECIALISTS MEET IN ST. PETERSBURG

On April 21, ExpoForum hosted the opening of the Nevsky Radiological Forum. More than 3,000 professionals converged at the venue to share their experience and familiarise themselves with the latest advancements in the field of radiology.

The first scientific event of this kind was held in 2003, and in the years since, the small speciality conference has transformed into a much sought-after scientific-practical forum bringing together thousands of specialists working in the fields of radio-diagnostics, radiation therapy and ultrasound diagnostics. The platform of the Nevsky Radiological Forum provides an opportunity to maintain the best traditions of the field’s great scientists, while passing on knowledge to young physicians and specialists in related professions.

“The Nevsky Forum makes a tremendous contribution to the advancement of radiology in our country. As of today, 3,265 people have undergone electronic registration. The doors have been opened to 40 schools, lectures are being delivered by 287 presenters, and these are being moderated by 113 specialists. We’re being supported by our foreign colleagues from 20 countries. The event is truly sweeping. I wish everyone productive work over the next three days,” welcomed the delegates Vladimir Cheremisin, President of RPO St. Petersburg Radiological Society.

Within the scope of the convention, special attention is paid to the scientific component. According to established tradition, there will be a Library of Clinical Observations, an English-language session, and a section for young scientists. In addition, the exhibition space will feature practical master-classes on the radio-diagnostic equipment being offered by various manufacturers.

Issues of diagnosing cardiovascular disease, acute coronary syndrome and myocardial infarction, neuroradiology, stroke, cerebral inflammatory disease and brain tumours remain a priority of the convention programme. The capabilities of hybrid, information technologies will also be reflected in the forum’s agenda.

The event is being held at the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre for the second time. Holding the forum in St. Petersburg is no accident: 100 years ago, it was precisely in the City on the Neva that Russia’s first radiological society was organised, the first Radiological institute was founded, and the country’s first monument to Wilhelm Röntgen was erected.
