Pooling International Knowledge on Appropriateness in Diagnostic Imaging

April 22–23, 2010 Hyatt Regency Hotel, Montréal, Québec, CANADA

Click here to register (Early bird rates in effect until March 21st, 2010).

The Canadian Association of Radiologists has been actively implementing and promoting the use of evidence-based guidelines to support appropriate use of imaging services in Canada. Numerous countries are similarly active in guidelines implementation. There is much to be learned from a sharing of international knowledge and experience. This Symposium will facilitate an international dialogue which can improve appropriateness of imaging care, more specifically through the creation and implementation of imaging referral guidelines that are effectively applied to the varying contexts (regional, national and global) in which health care is provided.

Distinguished Speakers Include:
• Dr. Michael Bettmann, Chair of the Appropriateness Criteria Committee, American College of Radiology, US
• Dr. Ramin Khorasani, Center for Evidence-Based Imaging, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, US
• Dr. Richard Mendelson, Editor, Diagnostic Imaging Pathways, Australia
• Dr. Martin Reed, Chair of the CAR Guidelines Working Group, Canada
• Dr. Denis Remedios, Chair of the Guidelines Working Party, Royal College of Radiologists, UK
• Dr. Sara Twaddle, President of the Guidelines International Network
