Latest  SIG News   - July  2020

It has been an unprecedented year of change and finding innovative ways of working and the SIG’s second meeting of the year on 26 June reflected this. The management group met via Vidoeconference and most of the group were able to ‘attend’ and contribute in a positive way.

The BIR has moved quickly to adapt its Education programme and many events will now be in a virtual format.  In addition the Institute has produced a brilliant webinar series on COVID-19. These have all been free of charge and are available to view in our Online Learning Library.

We also have a dedicated COVID-19 resources page on our website.

The BIR Annual Congress has also been adapted and will be a virtual event for the first time, taking place over three days 4 – 6 November 2020.  The exciting programme will cover:

  • Leadership and wellbeing
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Oncology
  • Patient protection

The event is free for BIR members, so don’t miss out!

The SIG have some great events coming up in 2020 and 2021:

The event will be take place virtually and be split into four one-hour sessions each day at midday from 29 September to 2 October 2020.

The event will be free for IDUG and BIR members

Book your place now!

This event will be planned to take place face to face but will be adapted to a virtual meeting if necessary.

This new event will provide a platform for industry to demonstrate their current products and discuss their pipeline products that will soon be available. This will allow participants to become aware of what the state of the art products in nuclear medicine are and help them decide what may best suit their needs to improve services.
