Management in Radiology (MIR), a subcommittee of the European Society of Radiology, has released details concerning the development of the scientific programme for their 2011 edition of the annual conference which takes place Thursday, September 29 to Friday, September 30 in Nice, France.
The congress provides essential healthcare management coverage not only to radiologists, but also to physicians and other healthcare workers in all medical disciplines, as well as to radiologic technologists, managers, nurses, informatics personnel and members of the medical industry. The scientific programme is available for download on www.mir-online.org, and is varied, interesting and highly pertinent to the problems and challenges of modern healthcare. There are lectures and discussions on requesting imaging studies, coding and budgeting, standards of reporting, location and management, e-health monitoring issues, ultrasound management, managing acute imaging services, and solutions to problems in imaging education and research – all of them offering plenty of opportunities for audience participation.
For the first time, the well-established MIR Imaging Management Junior Course will be combined with the Annual Scientific Meeting and therefore gives residents the chance to emphasise their knowledge on how to be prepared best for a consultant post. This special course – taking place just the day before the annual meeting, on September 28 – offers plenty of time for dialogue and questions. The meeting will be supported by the French Society of Radiology (SFR), and in this capacity be represented by Prof. Elisabeth Schouman-Claeys.
MIR is happy to receive your abstract for presentation at its Annual Scientific Meeting from September 29 - 30 in Nice, France until May 27 via e-mail to [email protected] The abstract should not exceed a maximum of 500 words, separated in "Purpose", "Methods & Materials", "Results" and "Conclusions".
