Emergency, Thoracic, Abdominal, and Pediatric subspecialties are all represented by the CAR Affiliate Societies. They advocate for your profession by addressing your needs and priorities. Membership to the Affiliate Societies is free with your CAR membership. With the help of the CAR, the Affiliate Societies convene, converse, and collaborate to further the value of radiology.
Affiliate members provide leadership, participate in discussions, and develop initiatives within their subspecialty in radiology in Canada and around the world. Make your voice stronger and share your knowledge by networking and collecting resources with fellow influencers.

“As the founder and president of CETARS, and a member of the CAR, it is a pleasure to network alongside fellow radiologists with a shared passion for advancing various aspects of medical imaging. The CETARS provides a contextual framework that promotes education, research, and advocacy within the field of Emergency, Trauma, and Acute Radiology to develop faster, safer, and more sensitive methods in patient care. I am actively investigating the newest innovations to continue illustrating Canada, the CETARS, and the CAR as trailblazers in the field by establishing the first Emergency and Trauma Radiology Fellowship program in North America, developing whole-body trauma CT protocols, and establishing a 24-hour Emergency Radiology coverage in British Columbia.”

“Because of the support of the CAR staff, the Canadian Society of Thoracic Radiology (CSTR) has been able to gain multidisciplinary recognition across Canada. The subspecialist expertise of the CSTR combined with the reputation of the CAR, have ensured radiologists have a seat at the table, sometimes at the head of table, in the development of medical guidelines and health policy.”
Silvia Chang, MD, FRCPC, FSAR
“The Canadian Society of Abdominal Radiology (CSAR), with the pivotal support of the CAR, provides a national platform for collaboration to develop best practices for patient-centered care. The society believes in advancing patient care through innovation, research, and education in the field of abdominal radiology. I love working with my colleagues on our board of directors who bring expertise in abdominal radiology from the breadth of Canada. Along with myself, they ensure that we stay at the cutting edge of clinical advances in our rapidly evolving field while providing guidance and standards to our clinical colleagues, residents, and fellows.”

“The CanSPR is valuable because it connects me to pediatric radiologists across Canada. We value the support of the CAR and believe that there needs to be an organization that represents us as a profession, brings us together collegially, and that informs us academically and clinically. I believe that joining the CanSPR is an integral step in connecting within my subspecialty, gaining a broader perspective, and supporting our patients, and I would encourage my colleagues to explore the myriad of benefits provided with membership in the CanSPR”.
