Welcome to Nordic Congress with Röntgenveckan 2015

eng-img4

Diagnostic radiology is pivotal for modern health care. An optimal examination must be performed for every patient in order to provide accurate information in the diagnostic work-up.

Individual tailoring of examinations is our interpretation of Personalised Imaging and will be the main topic for the Nordic congress 2015. This will be discussed in terms of age-dependence, sex-difference and weight-difference while renal function and contrast media, radiation doses for individual examinations and patient-care will also be considered – just to mention some of the congress topics.

Another important aspect of Personalised Imaging is for Radiology to be visible, not only by the referring physicians and at clinical conferences, but also directly amongst our patients. Radiology is one of the major specialties but nevertheless it remains unclear to some people who radiographers and radiologists are and what we do.

Radiology must also make its presence felt within Medical Schools and must defend its increasingly important role within the curriculum.

Besides the theme of Personalised Imaging, the comprehensive congress program will encompass many other aspects of imaging and care of patients together with a scientific exhibition.

Let’s join in the Nordic countries for a ”Röntgen så in i Norden” and welcome to beautiful Skåne in September 2015!

 
When: 8-11 September, 2015

Malmö is the third largest city in Sweden and is situated in Skåne, the southernmost part of Sweden at the coast of Öresund.

The conference venue Malmö Arena is the latest addition to northern Europe’s growing number of modern, multi-purpose concert and event venues and was the venue for Eurovision Song Contest in May 2013.

The Department of Medical Imaging and Physiology, Skåne University Hospital, is located in both Malmö and Lund. Lund university is the largest university in Scandinavia with more than 47 000 students while there are 24 000 students at Malmö university.

Travelling to Malmö
Malmö can conveniently be reached from the major international airport Copenhagen Airport/Kastrup in Denmark or the local airport Malmö Airport/Sturup. From Copenhagen Airport the most convenient way to travel to Malmö is by train across Öresund. Trains depart frequently and directly from the airport. Travelling time from Copenhagen Airport to Station Hyllie (Malmö Arena) is 13 minutes and to Malmö Central Station an additional 7 minutes.

There is a lot to do and to discover in the town of Malmö. Why not come a day early or stay over the weekend?
