BIR Annual Congress 2019

7th - 8th November 2019   (GMT+00:00) GMT

The BIR Annual Congress continues to grow. After a sell out event in 2018, we are moving to an even bigger venue – etc.venues County Hall – for 2019! Last year saw the addition of a third stream which we continue to adapt for this year, attracting an even wider range of top health professionals and decision makers. Taking place over two days, the event provides excellent opportunities to meet delegates and network in an open and relaxed environment. There is also an informal evening event and networking drinks.

This year's streams include:

  • Imaging in obesity
  • Radiology errors and artificial intelligence
  • Management
  • Patient dose
  • Incidentalomas
  • Post-treatment imaging
  • Cases from the archives

Who should attend?
Anyone with an interest and passion for radiology, radiation oncology and the underlying sciences, including radiologists, physicists, radiographers, oncologists, physicians, radiation protection advisers and supervisors.
