June 12 marks the fourth annual London Imaging Discovery workshop, the first of its kind designed to connect faculty and students of the Department of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine in the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and The University of Western Ontario.
The primary goal of the workshop is to join local radiologists and physicists together in a collaborative environment where they can exchange discoveries and innovations.
Coordinated through Robarts Research Institute’s Imaging Research Laboratories in collaboration with the Department of Medical Imaging and Schulich, this conference was pioneered by Dr. Rethy Chhem, Chief of Radiology at the London Health Sciences Centre; and Dr. Aaron Fenster, Director of the Imaging Research Lab at Robarts.
The London Imaging Discovery workshop has been named “The LID”, the organ of sight or vision, which was selected to capture the paradigm of London as a unique place for many imaging discoveries.
This forum is designed to replace the former Radiology Residency Day, while also bringing together radiologists, clinicians, scientists and students from the London medical imaging community. The goal of the LID forum is to create a platform to connect those in the field of medical research with those in the field of clinical medicine, to encourage harmonious relationships between medical professionals (and future professionals) in these two distinct areas.
A keynote speaker accented by presentations from scientists and students focusing on Anatomical Imaging, Functional Imaging and Molecular & Cellular Imaging, promises to be an informative and educational one-day workshop.
