The conference this year also focuses on Pediatric Imaging by dedicating a 1 day seminar on this topic presented by the Middle East Society of Pediatric Radiology.

In addition to that, the conference features a rich scientific agenda that covers 66 scientific sessions and lectures that will educate the attendees on various aspects of radiology and imaging, creating a great platform for knowledge exchange amongst conference participants and professionals in the field.

Over 40 top-notch speakers and 1,700 professionals from different parts of the world will be meeting at ARM 2018 to discuss a number of key trending topics in radiology including: Cardiac Imaging, Emergency Radiology, MSK, Artificial Intelligence in Radiology, Neuroradiology, Chest Imaging, Body Imaging, Pediatric Imaging for General Radiologists and Radiography.

Parallel to the conference, the exhibition attracts more than 50 participating brands in the field of radiology and diagnostic imaging who will showcase their cutting-edge equipment and most updated medical devices used in the field, in addition to key technologies in interventional radiology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled radiological equipment.

Commenting on the importance of this event, Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani, Executive Chairman, ARM said: “Radiology or diagnostic imaging is integral in medical practice as it paves the way for proper diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. Annual Radiology Meeting in UAE recognizes the need to develop, modernize and attract the best competencies for imaging on par with international standards, and thus the event presents the ultimate platform to share best practices in the profession and discover latest innovation and technology.”

He added: “In line with the Dubai Health Strategy 2016-2021 and the UAE strategy for Artificial Intelligence, which aims to foster the use of technology in the healthcare sector to improve efficiencies, enhance healthcare management and improve patient centric care, ARM will join efforts of the public and private sector to promote the use of AI for diagnostic imaging through the special focus on this topic during the conference this year, while also cater to the needs of 21st century radiologists, who need to adapt to advanced imaging methods and technologies.”

Speaking at the conference this year, Prof. Claude Pierre Jerome, Associate Professor of Radiology, Oslo University, Norway, said: “ARM is an exceptional event in Dubai and presents a unique gathering of radiology experts and academicians from many well-known institutions in the USA, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. This year, my lectures will focus on the diagnostic criteria of Spondylodiscitis on MRI, and secondly on the Biomechanics and Pathologies of the Ankle-Foot Unit including derangements of the Achilles tendon and the Plantar Fascia.”

He added: “Today, the new generation of radiology specialists have developed a keen interest both in radiology and scientific research related to various disciplines in the field. Our main goal at ARM 2018 is to provide a broad range of information not only about everyday radiology practices but also about recent scientific developments in the field.”
