“My first SCBTMR conference experience in Washington D.C. was outstanding. The meeting’s organization was superb with lectures, workshops, and roundtable discussions covering every facet of body and cardiac imaging. The conference was overall an invaluable experience. I left feeling motivated and enthusiastic about what’s in store for next year.” – Dr. Anthony Davila

“The lectures and workshops were very good and have excellent content, informative, well-structured and very good speakers.” – Dr. Leonardo Marcal

"I enjoyed attending the 2018 SCBT Conference. It was properly scaled, catered to a spectrum of body imaging sub-specialties and provoked the intellectual curiosity.” Dr. Phillip Hyuntae Kim

“Being at SCBT-MR is always a terrific learning experience. It is a unique meeting where one gets to learn about cutting edge CT/MR technology from the experts in the field. The meeting also offers an exclusive opportunity to trainees and young faculty to interact with innovators and leaders up close which is not possible at any other meeting. The mentorship opportunities are outstanding! Regular attendance at this meeting is a “MUST” for any body-imager, academic or in private practice who is keen on being abreast of the recent imaging technology and its impact on patient care.” – Dr. Avinash Kambadakone

“I really appreciate the intentional focus on diversifying the speaker pool to include younger faculty members and also more women. I also really appreciated the unique opportunity to partner with such a luminary in radiology as Dr. Neil Rofsky for our Strategy session round table.  I do not believe that such an opportunity is available at other meetings and I hope you continue to encourage the pairing of early/mid-career faculty with well-respected and well-established leaders in radiology.

 Dr. McGinty’s talk reassured me that at any time, even later in one’s career or after being in private practice for a while, you can choose to lean in, find mentors and still be impactful in academics.  I really appreciated the fact that the meeting was in the center of a vibrant and interesting city such as Washington DC.” Dr. Carolyn Wang


We can't thank you enough for attending SCBT-MR'S Annual Meeting. We know how busy you must be and the many educational activities there are to consider. Thank you for choosing SCBT-MR.  We hope that you left D.C with new information and friends in Body Imaging.

Thank you again for being part of this quality educational conference.  We look forward to seeing you at SCBT-MR 2019 in Denver, CO.
