Diagnostic Imaging in Paediatrics

Pediatric Radiology: Chest and Cardiac imaging| I International Lectures SJD

Registration closed


We are pleased to invite you to the I International Pediatric Radiology symposium in Sant Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona. In this first edition the program includes pediatric chest and cardiac image.

Renowned international and national professors will lecture about the basis, advanced techniques and future of the pediatric chest imaging. We will also focus on pre and postnatal cardiac imaging, introducing for the first time in our country a fetal cardiac MRI session.

The sessions will have a teaching approach giving priority to the description of the technique and the semiology as well as the presentation of practical clinical cases.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit the Diagnostic Imaging Department of our Hospital.

We would like to welcome you and enjoy the academic agenda and the city of Barcelona.


Ignasi Barber, Pilar García Peña and Javier Lucaya

The Pediatric Radiology: Chest and Cardiac imaging | I International Lectures SJD will feature the presentations of internationally recognized experts: R. Paul Guillerman, Professor of Radiology at Baylor College of Medicine and Head of Academic Affairs at the Texas Department of Pediatric Radiology Children's Hospital in Houston, and Michael Seed, head of the Cardiology Division at The Hospital for Sick Children and a professor at the University of Toronto.
