The CAR's 80th Anniversary

The CAR 80th Anniversary

Join the celebrations at the 2017 ASM, plus a look at other ASM highlights

The year was 1937 –William Lyon Mackenzie King was Prime Minister of Canada, gas was 10 cents a gallon, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs hit theaters, J.R.R. Tolkein’s ‘The Hobbit” was published, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese was introduced and X-rays were the only imaging modality.

A group of radiologists from across Canada came together in Toronto and formed the Canadian Association of Radiologists. Its mandate? To promote the interests of radiology with special emphasis on clinical, educational, ethical, and economic aspects. Now, 80 years later, the CAR has grown into a national professional association representing over 2,000 radiologists and radiologists-in-training.

Radiologists from across Canada and throughout the world are invited to join the CAR in celebrating its 80th Anniversary at the CAR Annual Scientific Meeting, to be held in Montreal from April 20 to 23.

Highlights will include:

  • 80th Anniversary Celebration Cocktail
  • An historic walk through the CAR’s key figures and achievements
  • Inauguration of the new CAR Distinguished Career Achievement Award
  • 80 Years of CAR – a talk by ASM Chair, Dr. Jonathon Leipsic

There is much to celebrate and we hope you will join us for an entertaining evening as we mix and mingle and take guests on a stroll down memory lane, while enjoying music from some of the top artists from 1937 – Benny Goodman, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire and Ella Fitzgerald! An event not to be missed!

Innovative Simulation Workshop

HRCT of the Chest – A hands-on practical workshop of diffuse lung disease

This year’s annual interactive workshop will be dedicated to diffuse and interstitial lung disease. This half-day hands-on CT workshop can accommodate up to 40 participants. Short high-impact didactic sessions will be followed by hands-on review of complete image files. With a five-to-one participant to faculty ratio, and plenty of image workstations, participants will be able to simulate real case-reporting with the benefit of individualised instructor feedback. Sign up for it during the ASM registration process.

Exceptional Scientific Program

The 2017 ASM will touch on new technologies, how to integrate them thoughtfully, and how to use imaging to help guide therapeutic decision making to help improve clinical outcomes. For more details, see meeting agenda.
