The 2nd Baltic Congress of Radiology

Invitation

This is an invitation for radiologists, radiographers, surgeons, oncologists, neurologists, pediatric neurologists, gynaecologists, and to everybody who is interested in studying radiological imaging. 

Dear Colleagues and Guests
Estonian Society of Radiology (ESR) has a great honour to invite you to the Baltic Conference of Radiology 2008 (BCR 2008), which will be held in Tartu October 24 - 25th, 2008 in the Conference Centre of the Hotel Dorpat.

The first Baltic Congress of Radiology was held in Kaunas, Lithuania 2006. Now, two years later, the 2nd common radiology forum for the Baltic States is being organized in Tartu, Estonia, in the town where one of the oldest universities of the region was founded already in 1632.

The aim of the Baltic Conference of Radiology is to give Baltic radiologists, technicians, residents and other specialists in the field a chance to meet regularly every second year at the regional meeting.

The purpose of the Baltic congresses and conferences is to exchange experience between Baltic radiologists, another special aim is to bring together young scientists.

We believe that these regular meetings would give opportunity for radiologists from the Baltic States to make scientific presentations for international audience. We really hope that every participant will find interesting topics to follow from invited lectures as well as short communications and poster presentations.

On Behalf of the Organizing Committee
Aadu Simisker
Vice-president of Estonian Society of Radiology
