On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to Global Radiology Education (GRE). In recent years, the breath and scope of imaging evaluation continues to rapidly increase in both pediatric and adult patients. The main focus of our program is in response to this constantly changing and advancing fields of adult and pediatric imaging that makes it often challenging for trainees and practicing radiologists to stay current and up-to-date.
This course and workshop will provide a one of a kind opportunity to learn the most up to date and comprehensive review of fundamental and advanced imaging modalities for evaluating various disorders in children and adults.
First, this comprehensive radiology educational course provides a practical overview of currently available techniques and clinical applications that can be used for assessing both congenital and acquired disorders. In addition, the course will also review pitfalls in imaging interpretation and the optimal methods for imaging various normal and abnormal anatomic structures as well as clinically important disorders. The fundamental educational format of this course is didactic lecture style by world-renowned radiology experts. Our course is also supplemented by a highly effective interactive case-based review session, which includes substantial time for audience interaction. We provide also the opportunity for our younger colleagues to express their research reports or their interesting cases in the form of oral presentations and posters.
It is our pleasure to bring GRE to different countries each year. We dearly look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to GRE and hope you enjoy our program and the unique experience that each country has to offer.
