The Radiologist-Clinician – Putting the Patient at the Centre of Care
Connect with your radiology community at the Canadian Association of Radiologists VIRTUAL Annual Scientific Meeting, taking place from April 6 - 10, 2022. The CAR 2022 Scientific Planning Committee has developed a dynamic program focused on the radiologist as a clinician and leader in patient-centered care. This year, the program features a particular emphasis on content that is relevant to community radiologists, balanced with impactful sessions geared for sub-specialists and those in academic practice environments.
CAR 2022 offers a robust mix of didactic lectures, interactive question, and answer sessions, and provides a variety of ways to enhance every participant’s learning experience. The program will bring together outstanding speakers from across North America, including plenary lectures from Dr. Frank Miller (Northwestern), Dr. Aaron Sodickson (Harvard), Dr. David Lynch (National Jewish Health), Dr. Mary-Louise Greer (SickKids), and Dr. Robert Shih (AIRP/Walter Reed).
This year, the CAR Affiliate Societies have participated in the development of sessions, resulting in a scientific and educational program highlighting cardio-thoracic radiology (CSTR), abdominal radiology (CSAR), emergency and trauma radiology (CETARS), and pediatric radiology (CanSPR). The program also features an interactive workshop (April 6 & 7) on structured reporting, bringing together expert from various sub-specialties to provide practical guidance to radiologists seeking to improve their familiarity with -RADS reporting systems. Building on the success of last year’s dedicated Trainee Day, CAR 2022 includes a full day of sessions and lectures geared specifically to the needs of radiology medical students, residents, and fellows. Renowned for its scientific and educational content, CAR 2022 is the premier Canadian radiology event of the year.
This program was developed following a review of objective data including practice data, consultation with experts in the field, survey data detailing the perceived and unperceived needs of members as well as the experience and expertise of the scientific planning committee. Additionally, a historical review and analysis of educational content covered in the past five Annual Scientific Meetings as well as subjective data from the previous year’s evaluations were reviewed in detail to create a focus for this year’s program.
This meeting is designed for all general and subspecialty radiologists as well as radiology residents and fellows whose work involves performing or interpreting images, determining appropriateness, and using advanced equipment and tools to help guide therapeutic decision-making and help improve clinical outcomes.
