Dr Klaus Irion (North of England branch chairman) hands out prizes to trainees at the Northern branch meeting in Liverpool.
Ever-increasing time and financial constraints are making it harder for medical imaging professionals to attend off-site training and events. The British Institute of Radiology has recognised these difficulties and is now bringing events to radiological professionals around the country through its regional branches network, which have been formed in Scotland, the North of England, Wales and the Wessex region.
During 2008, events hosted in Salisbury, Swansea, Liverpool and Southampton were attended by professionals reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the institute.
The BIR is continuing this regional expansion in 2009. Meetings and workshops are planned in Basingstoke, Wrexham, Liverpool, Southampton, Glasgow and York on a wide selection of topics ranging from emergency radiology to lung cancer staging.
