Worldwide Radiology at the British Society of Neuroradiologists' Annual Conference
Our team recently had the privilege of attending the British Society of Neuroradiologists' (BSNR) Annual Conference in Edinburgh, an event that provided a platform for us to showcase our impact.
Collaboration in Action
At the conference, we took the chance to highlight the strength of working together. Dr. Reena Dwivedi, a Consultant Neuroradiologist from NHS Lothian and our Educational Lead Trustee based in Edinburgh, took centre stage to share invaluable insights into our Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) project in Ghana.
The presentation focused on the critical role of Neuroradiology training presenting cases from Ghana.
What made this presentation truly remarkable was the live participation of Dr. Kwasi Twum, a dedicated practitioner from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Ghana, who joined the British Society of Neuroradiologists remotely from Ghana.
This collaborative effort is made possible through the support of the Collective Minds Radiology platform.
Our team's feedback following the session was overwhelmingly positive.
"BSNR 2023 in Edinburgh provided the perfect opportunity to host a 'Neuroimaging in Ghana' session, allowing Dr. Kwasi Twum and me to share our experiences of friendship, collaboration, and mentoring over four years," shared Dr. Reena Dwivedi. "We had a fantastic response to our cases, and the session proved a real eye-opener for the audience of neuroradiologists."
Dr. Kwasi Twum echoed these sentiments, saying, "I had a thrilling experience presenting an African perspective of neuroradiology to a forum of experts."
The British Society of Neuroradiologists
BSNR exists with a mission to promote the practice, development, sharing, and teaching of world-class Neuroradiology in an inclusive and engaging manner.
The BSNR organises its Annual Scientific Meeting, hosted each year in a different medical centre in the UK and occasionally in Europe. The society maintains robust professional connections with the Royal College of Radiologists and fosters international ties with organisations like the European Society of Neuroradiology and the World Federation of Neuroradiological Societies. Additionally, the society is affiliated with the UK Stroke Forum.
