On the last day of the 14th Annual Conference of Indian Society of Neuroradiology (ISNR) there were lectures on head and imaging of the inner ear. In the morning there was a session on the latest advancements in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Tumour of the voice box (larynx) and the oropharynx (upper food tract) are common problems in our country.
It is extremely important to detect such tumours at an early stage.
It is also crucial to know the exact extent of these tumours so that it is possible to start appropriate treatment well in time.
Recent advances in imaging technology like PET-CT have made it possible to determine the extent of these tumours accurately.
Extensive deliberations were held on this topic in a session which was chaired by N Panda, Head, Department of Otolaryngology, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research and Uday Patil, a neuroradiologist from Bangalore.
The categorical course on Magnetic Resonance physics was widely appreciated.
It highlighted the role of technology in Magnetic Resonance imaging and the need to bridge the gap between technology advancements and clinical imaging in order to fully utilise this modality.
The conference concluded in the afternoon with the prize distribution ceremony and the valedictory function which was chaired by N Khandelwal, Head, Department of Radiodiagnosis, and Chairperson of the conference and Paramjeet Singh, Department of Radiodiagnosis, and Organising Secretary of the conference.
In the valedictory function N Khandelwal thanked the residents and the delegates for their active participation.
He also expressed gratitude to the national and international faculty for their valuable contributions.
