Echos from the CIR Meeting

Gathered in Chicago, the Directors of most of the countries members of the CIR had a long and productive Ordinary General Meeting during which the continuous growth of the organization became evident due to the multiple topics raised and the great number of participants that form the different work groups.

The college is now an organization in the prime of its development. It is fundamentally oriented to the education of radiologists. This education can be imparted in the traditional way, by sending visiting professors to the countries associated to the CIR or electronically, which has also had a great reception from radiologists. We have also included four new monographic books this year. The college also takes on union issues and those related to the practice of the specialty and the relationships with international medical organisms.

This meeting was followed by an extraordinary meeting in which the College decided to add a member to the board of directors to ensure continuity in their actions. The meeting was completely successfull.

All this and more will continue to be reported by the NOT i CIR to its subscribers.

Portugal joins the College

The whole CIR celebrates that Portugal has joined us, represented by its National Society:

Sociedade Portuguesa de Radiologia e Medicina Nuclear (SPRMN)

The advisers and directors of the CIR gave a warm welcome to this prestigious organization that was represented in this act by Dr. Felipe Caseiro that will contibute to the better development of our specialty.

The SPRMN thus becomes the second european society to join the CIR and the second portuguese-speaking one. Portuguese, together with English are the official languages of our College.

Honors to members of the CIR

Honors to members of the CIR
Francisco Xavier Rodríguez Recio y Alejandro Beresñak

Five years were enough for Francisco Xavier Recio, from Segovia, Spain and Alejandro Beresñak from Buenos Aires, Argentina to prove before all the Ibero American radiologists that electronic education through courses, virtual congresses, forums, chats, clinical presentations, etc. is an effective tool, currently considered essential by a large number of our affiliates.

It was them, also, together with Dr. Oswaldo Ramos, the members of the first CIR department created under the name of “Electronic Education Department”. They were able to bring to that department great dinamism and prestige, obtaining the participation of more than 20,000 radiologists in the programs implemented by it.

As the work cycle concluded they have decided to retire, so the whole meeting showed their admiration in a standing homage. Also, Dr. Rodrigo Restrepo informed that he has requested that they both receive the Academic Merit Diploma, which will be given to them in the next Inter
