Share the Vision
The Scientific Planning Committee has developed a dynamic program focused on disseminating techniques based on whole-body imaging, evidence-based medicine and best practice, subjects deemed to be of special interest by Canadian radiologists at past meetings. The comprehensive event program, themed Share the Vision, will address current key issues that affect radiologists and radiologists-in-training and features balanced content which will be relevant and useful for both community radiologists and those in academic practice environments.
CAR 2021 offers a robust mix of online didactic lectures, interactive question and answer sessions, debates and panel session and provides a variety of ways to enhance every participant’s virtual learning experience. This year’s meeting boasts two new highlights: Trainee Day, dedicated to assist trainees in radiology training and clinical examinations and the CSTR’s Focus on Lung Screening. Renowned for its scientific and educational content, this six-day meeting 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.
