Oman, represented by ORMIS (the Oman Radiology and Molecular Imaging Society), and in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Oman Medical Association, the Oman Convention Bureau and the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre has won a bid to host the 30th edition of the International Radiology Congress in October 2020. Key highlights of the conference will include diagnostic, interventional radiology, radiation protection and the important subject of Artificial Intelligence applications in radiology. There will also be a separate programme within the congress for Radiographers and Radiology Technologists and an exhibition demonstrating the latest technology and equipment in the field of radiology.
ORMIS was formed in 2009 and one of its aims is to bring all radiologists working in Oman together under one umbrella to facilitate dialogue and exchange ideas. It also allows for sharing standardised protocols and procedures for diagnostic and therapeutic radiology procedures.
Khalid Al Zadjali, Director of the Oman Convention Bureau added, “It is expected that more than 1000 experts will attend the congress from all over the globe with many internationally renowned speakers covering the latest advances in radiology. We will ensure that they have the most successful conference ever and we will shower them with our warm Omani hospitality.”
