1st CIR Radiology Session in Spanish in RSNA 2011
November 26, 2011 from 2.00 pm to 5.30 pm
Arrange your schedule and participate

With a vision of future and growth, the Interamerican College of Radiology has requested to participate in the next event of RSNA 2011 with a session of conferences in Spanish, and such request has been accepted. This is an important achievement since it shows a development in the specialties of the member countries. It also represents a challenge because one of the current premises is participation. This session is an opportunity to gather and to exchange scientific experiences. We have the duty to attend and to bring a significant number of representatives of all member countries and of our main role in this specialty.

It is a great moment because, being the language of the session Spanish, we won’t have the linguistic barrier. Professors and assistants will be able to show our clinical and educational activities carried out within our territory.

It is clear that technological growth in our countries has recently introduced cutting edge equipment in all areas: Ultrasound, X – Rays, Mammography, Bone Densitometry, Multislice CT Scan, MRI, PET (Positron Emission Tomography); most of them have a digital format and can be used in teleradiology, for academic education or standard protocols as well as for certificates issued by CIR.

We are glad to invite you, all the radiologists from the member countries, to attend this session so we can show how committed and interested we are in improving the quality of intercontinental radiology.

We know we have to travel one day before but we also consider that is important to be there and to support our institution, our specialty, and the work we have done in our countries.

Dr. Oswaldo Ramos.

We invite all the NOT i CIR readers to see directly from this space the monthly informative newsletter: RSNA News which the Radiological Society of North America has kindly offered us.

You will be able to access the most recent issue of the newsletter, as well as the index for previous issues both in the website (html) and PDF file.



Our readers will be pleased to know that in this 20th anniversary, the Radiological Society of North America has redesigned
its logo as well as the bulletin.
NOTi CIR, which, each month, has the privilege of including a LINK for questions for CIR members, congratulates RSNA News on this anniversary!


GO RAD is a new global outreach program developed by the International Society of Radiology. The purpose is to reach out to and advance radiology education throughout a global radiology community by aggregating current, practical, radiology literature with content targeted and dedicated to developing nations and underserved populations.

As the world of scholarship and education shrinks by virtue of the electronic tools available, it is appropriate for the international leadership in radiology to look to current and future global needs.

Most major radiology journals publish online and offer educational content of tremendous value to radiologists and other related healthcare providers, but open and easy access to just published content is only available to subscribers.

Through agreements with these cooperating major radiology journals, the GO RAD platform provides immediate open access to a limited amount of otherwise restricted access content, providing an electronic link back to the original on-line article, at the time of first publication.

We hope that you take full advantage of this program to improve the health and well being of all.

Editor-in-Chief, GO RAD

The History Corner: Antonio Beclere

Antonio Beclere was a French virologist and immunologist. He was born in Paris (1856 – 1939) and he was also a pioneer in electro radiology. In 1897 he founded the first radiology laboratory in Paris.

He was the son of a physician and he attended the Condorcet School and the School of Sciences. He was particularly brilliant in Maths and Physics. He finally chose Medicine and started his studies in 1873.

In January, 1896, the discovery of X-rays, which was fostered by his friends Barthelemy and Oudin, spread quickly. The first session of radioscopy organized by both of them revealed the wide range of possibilities of this method.

Due to his deep interest in Radiology, he ever stopped studying, practicing and publishing the results of his research. He even said about this field: “This way seemed to me the road to the promised land”. In 1897, he was appointed Chief of the Tenon Hospital and he provided the service of general medicine with the first radiology laboratory.

He stopped working for public immunology and in 1899 he published “Los Rayos Roentgen y el diagnóstico de la tuberculosis” (Roentgen rays and the diagnosis of tuberculosis). This book was followed by several others dealing with radiologic technique, radio diagnostics and radiotherapy.

During World War I he was chief of radiologic services in the Army.

In 1931 he became President of the Academy of Medicine and he played a determining role in the development of radiology and radiotherapy.

The International Society of Radiology (ISR) awards the Antoine Beclere Medal, the highest award of this organization. It is given to those who have made the most outstanding contributions to the world of radiology.

Comment: First of all, congratulations on this brilliant Idea of connecting colleagues through the web. I’ve been a radiologist for thirteen years, I’ve worked in different cities of my country and I have grown fond of the city of Huancayo, in the mountains of Peru. It isn’t easy for us to travel to Lima frequently in order to assist to the scientific meetings of society but we are eager to communicate through means like the one you have so accurately provided.

Many thanks,
