Our radiologists’ research featured at international conference

The Radiological Society of North America (“RSNA”) is holding its annual international conference in Chicago this week.  Canada Diagnostic Centres is very proud that three of our radiologists have research that is being presented at this high-profile conference.

The RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting has 53,000 attendees from around the world.  The Scientific Assembly is considered the premiere scientific radiology forum in the world – providing the most up-to-date and leading edge research into all aspects of radiology.

Drs. Bruce Forster and Gordon Andrews are contributing authors to research posters on musculo-skeletal imaging and improving CT reporting for radiology residents.  Dr. Forster is also moderating and presenting at an educational session on elbow/hand/wrist imaging.

Dr. Hugue Ouellette, our Medical Director is a contributing author to eight research papers which have been accepted for presentation at this year’s Assembly.  His topics include musculo-skeletal imaging and radiology in emergency settings.

Our radiologists’ research was conducted at UBC Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital – facilities where they also work, teach and research.

We’re very proud of the work our radiologists do both at Canada Diagnostic and our local teaching hospitals – and we would like to congratulate them on their contributions to this year’s RSNA Scientific Assembly.

If you are considering a private MRI, CT or Ultrasound exam, we would be happy to help.  To learn more about our services, please visit our website or call us at 1-877-709-8522.
