We hope you will join us at the 66th Anniversary of the SPR Annual Meeting & Postgraduate Course as we “Remember the Past and Prepare for the Future” of Pediatric Radiology. This meeting will bring the pediatric radiology community together to learn more about state-of-the-art pediatric imaging and its positive impact on the children we serve. Spanning the first three days, the Annual Meeting will include numerous concurrent scientific and midday sessions in addition to special featured lectures and the ever-popular SPR Jeopardy session. Focused sessions on diversity, equity, inclusion, wellness, and professionalism will be interspersed throughout. The Annual Meeting will be followed by concurrent 1 ½ day Postgraduate Courses - A Postgraduate Clinical Course: A Multimodality Approach and a Postgraduate Nonclinical Skills Course: Practical Professional Pearls. We look forward to connecting with you as we remember the past and prepare for the future of pediatric radiology together!
