Fresh success for Guerbet at JFR 2015
Four days of meetings, 160 staff present, interventional radiology post-graduate training and a highly appreciated symposium on the topic of gadolinium deposits in the brain
From 16 to 19 October the French-speaking radiology world met in Paris for the annual French radiology society congress or “JFR” (Journées françaises de radiologie diagnostique et interventionnelle – French diagnostic and interventional radiology congress).
This year over 17,800 participants brought the event – held at the Porte Maillot Congress Hall – to life. The JFR, a not-to-be-missed French-speaking medical imaging congress, was a fresh opportunity for us to see radiologists, radiographers, radiology interns and health professionals with a connection to medical imaging.
Our teams from the French, Belgian and Swiss subsidiaries, but also from the rest of Europe, Africa and Asia, welcomed delegates to our stand.
As is the case every year, we were in the heart of the Interventional Radiology Village, a great place for discussion shaping the future of imaging.
We were particularly proud to participate in the organization of two meetings which were a great success:
- A post-graduate training module (EPU) on interventional radiology presented by the Union of Radiology Interns (UNIR) in the Juniors’ Salon, with presentations by Dr. Guillaume Vesselle, Clinical Manager at the Poitiers University Hospital, Dr. Sami Bourkhis from the Bicêtre Hospital and Professor Hicham Kobeiter from the Henri Mondor hospital group.
- Guerbet’s “About Gadolinium deposits in the brain” symposium, greatly appreciated by the participants, with Professor Fabrice Bonneville (Toulouse University Hospital), Professor Douraied Ben Salem (Brest University Hospital), Dr. Nicolas Menjot de Champfleur (Montpellier University Hospital) and Jean-Marc Idée (Guerbet R&D).
