Fontainebleau Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida
Acutely ill adults and pediatric patients are arriving at the emergency room in greater numbers than ever before. This symposium is designed to help radiologists and emergency radiologists maintain optimal competence in the utilization of the most reliable imaging modalities and best-practice strategies, even for unusual conditions. One-third of the lectures will be dedicated to plain films and the remainder will stress state-of-the-art emergency imaging of the central nervous system, chest, abdomen and coronary and musculoskeletal systems. This course will be of special interest to physicians in the fields of radiology, emergency radiology and emergency medicine.

The Center for Pediatric Contrast Ultrasound (CPCU) Workshops
The Center for Pediatric Contrast Ultrasound (CPCU) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was officially inaugurated on the 20th of September 2018 at a ceremony marking the generous donation for the center by Bracco Diagnostics Inc. The Center was established with the mission to advance the clinical practice, research and education in pediatric contrast US. The Center encompasses the Divisions of Body Imaging and Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology and the Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Pediatrics. Contrast US at CHOP was started in 2013 and now the pediatric contrast indications are very wide including intravenous (brain, abdomen, MSK etc.), intracavitary (contrast enhanced voiding urosonography and genitography), intralymphatic (MR lymphangiography guidance) as well as many applications in interventional radiology. Both clinical and basic science contrast US research is expanding with the support from multiple grants. The CPCU had carried out 13 hands-on pediatric contrast US workshop since April 2017 and trained over a 100 physicians and sonographers from 34 different centers in North America. Out of the 34 centers already 20 are now performing pediatric contrast US with 7 in the process to do so. Enclosed you will find detailed information about the CPCU as well as about the hands-on courses.

The 40th Post Graduate Course and the 54th European Society of Pediatric Radiology (ESPR) Annual Meeting
in Berlin, Germany were a great success – also for the attending members of the SPR
Berlin, June 2018: There was great interest for the ESPR annual meeting and the 2-day continuing education course before. A total of 930 registered participants met in Berlin from 18 to 22 June to discuss the latest results in the field of pediatric radiology and also to take advantage of the accompanying training courses. But not only the absolute number of participants was a record: participants from 64 countries from all continents came to Berlin. The SPR members from the US and Canada were the third largest group in the meeting (67 participants). For the first time, new formats with interactivity were tested during an ESPR conference, which apparently were well received. These included interactive parts with a voting app, both in the Post Graduate Course and in the scientific sessions.
The newly established Keynote Lectures were a central part of the scientific sessions, held by international giants of pediatric radiology, even from the American side as James Barkovich, Edward Lee and Lane Donelly. Their accentuated beginnings and a concluding interactive case discussions at the end of the sessions made it possible to keep the audience in the auditorium during the long scientific sessions. New for the ESPR were also the format of a quiz show of medical cases (JEOPARDY! –well known in the SPR meetings) and discussion rounds on the value of lung ultrasound and artificial intelligence in pediatric radiology. A lot of Special Focus Sessions and Task Force Sessions rounded off the concurrent three lines program.
Kassa Darge, Radiologist-in-Chief at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) became the honorary member of ESPR 2018 for his ongoing efforts to develop relations between USA and ESPR.
The conference was funded with a total of 63 grants to young pediatric radiologists under the age of 35 by radiological societies in Europe. Over half of the participants were under 40 years. The conference was rounded off by a networking program under the umbrella theme ‘Roaring Twenties’ - the 1920s in Berlin.
From the point of view of the congress organizers – Department of Pediatric Radiology, Leipzig/Germany and the Congress President Franz Wolfgang Hirsch – the goal of the meeting was reached through networking young radiologists newly, or even more closely, to the subspecialty of Pediatric Radiology.
