Letter from the President
Dr. Ricardo García Mónaco
 

El The Inter-American College of Radiology has evolved significantly in the last years, and has managed to insert itself into the world radiology field as a continental representative of the societies of radiology. Therefore, you are usually invited to the international meetings that take place in todayís globalized world: The participation of CIR in the RSNA (Radiological Society of North America), ISR (International Society of Radiology), OPS (Pan-American Health Office), WHO (World Health Organization), Radiological Health (the WHOís Office of Radioprotection) and other international groups that show the worldwide reach of our organization.

In this context, the ESR (European Society of Radiology), which intends to become global and have participation in non-European members, has written a letter to CIR to inform its interest to associate Latin American radiologists as part of its policy to reach physician worldwide, with a symbolic annual fee of only 10 Euros.

We are also invited to enter into an educational and scientific interchange CIR-ESR agreement which is underway and is intended to be executed soon. 

We believe this is an excellent opportunity for all CIR’s member to establish deep bonds with the ESR as we have been doing with other international societies for some time now.

We invite all American radiologists who so wish to associate with the ESR to do so taking advantage of this great opportunity. The details and benefits of being a member of the ESR, as well as the membership form, are found in: www.myesr.org, membership@myesr.org

CIR Committees

CIRís Education Committee

Throughout the years, CIRís Education Committee has been one of the most active and rewarding.

According to the bylaws, the committee has to deal with all business related to education including planning, organization and execution of the most important academic event, the Inter-American Congress of Radiology every two years. Likewise, it supports the congresses and seminars both national and local together with the different societies.

Dr. Rodrigo Restrepo González

The committee defines the criteria and rules for the continued medical education programs in different specialties. It also coordinates the countriesí certification and accreditation programs.

The Visiting Professor program is one of the main areas and involves selecting and financing renowned professors to support the courses and congresses. Each year, the National Societies interested in obtaining support send their applications to CIRís Secretariat which later submits them to the approval of the Annual General Assembly in November.

To this end, they have created a list of the 60 accredited professors, with their CVs, and a list of the conferences. In 2006, the Committee sent 16 professors to contribute to the meetings held in 6 countries. For 2007, they intend to include other 6 countries and about the same number of professors, thus increasing its budget from 10 thousand to 15 thousand dollars.

The Committee has designed a Registry of Teaching and Training Centers to develop a program for the purpose of encouraging the exchange of Radiologists and residents. The Education Committee for the 2006-2008 period is made up of the persons below:

Coordinator:
Dr. Rodrigo Restrepo González
Members:
Courses:
Dr. Rodrigo Restrepo González (COL)
Radiologic protection:
Dr. Alfredo Buzzi (ARG)

Reorganization of the Cuban Society of Radiology

José Carlos Ugarte Suárez, advisor to the Cuban Society of Radiology, informs that the national association of radiology in Cuba has undergone a reorganization process and has changed its name to Cuban Society of Imaging.

The new organization presided over by Prof. Orlando Valls Pérez, who is accompanied by Vice President Dr José Carlos Ugarte Suárez, Secretary Dr. Miguel Ángel Rodríguez Allende, Assistant Secretary Dr. José Jordán and Treasurer Dr Raquel Pérez Gonzáles, has scheduled its first course in La Habana on October 24-26, 2007.

Congratulations to our Cuban colleagues!

 

The Chairman signs an agreement

Last May, the Cuban Society of Imaging donated a book on Multi-Slide Computed Tomography that may be sent all of CIR’s radiologists who request it. The donation was made due to the execution of an agreement signed by Dr José Carlos Ugarte, author and Vice President of the Cuban Society, and Dr. Ricardo García Mónaco, CIR’s Chairman. The act was held in the presence of the Cuban Consul during the “Verimágenes” Course, in the city of Veracruz, Mexico
