The Department of Pediatric Radiology at Texas Children’s Hospital presented a record 22 scientific abstracts at the 57th Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course of the Society for Pediatric Radiology. The presentation took place on May 13th, and the meeting will be held until the 17th in Washington D.C. Learn more about the conference.
The record of abstracts presentations reflects the “national recognition” Texas Children’s team of physicians researchers and clinical staff are gaining, says Dr. George Bisset, past president of The Radiological Society of North America, and currently chief of the Department of Pediatric Radiology at Texas Children’s Hospital and professor of radiology at Baylor College of Medicine. According to him, their presentations addressed numerous subspecialties, such as cardiac, fetal, gastrointestinal, neurologic, oncologic, and renal imaging.
The Society for Pediatric Radiology focuses on fostering excellence in pediatric health care through imaging and image-guided care. With this meeting, where the society brings together leading experts in the field from around the world, the aim is to give pediatric and general radiologists an opportunity to summarize information on state-of-the-art pediatric imaging and the practice of pediatric radiology, as well as to describe new technologies for pediatric imaging. Participants also discussed trends in research concerning the care of pediatric patients, identifying common challenges the pediatric ragiologists currently face.
Led by Dr. George S. Bisset III, Texas Children’s Department of Pediatric Radiology uses up-to-date technological images advances to provide timely comprehensive imaging procedures for pediatric patients as well as an unparalleled collaborative research environment for both clinical and basic researchers.
