RSSA CME grant report

My attendance at the 49th Annual Meeting of the European Society of Paediatric Radiology, held in Athens, Greece, from 28 May to 1 June 2012, was made possible by the generosity of the Radiological Society of South Africa CME Association grant. This meeting provided me with an opportunity for continued learning by sharing in the experiences of international paediatric radiologists. The 2-day comprehensive Junior European Society of Paediatric Radiology (JESPeR) course, covering important and relevant paediatric topics, was the highlight of my trip.

I was privileged to have been given the opportunity to deliver an oral presentation and to have also had the opportunity to meet the authors whom I had referenced in my research. The questions to the presenters at the meeting were as relevant and thought-provoking as the researched presentations. It was an incredible opportunity to engage with individuals who practice with such determination to deliver the best quality of care to children within their disciplines.

Dr Nasreen Mahomed of CHBH also attended the meeting, and made 3 poster presentations (as reported in the last SAJR), and Professor Andronikou delivered the JESPeR honorary lecture, entitled Tuberculosis from A - Ω.

Information gathered at this meeting, and the people who imparted their knowledge and research, has made a huge impression on me and my understanding of the manner in which the international community practice radiology. My sincere thanks to the trustees of the RSSA CME Association for affording me this opportunity to attend.
