Hospital da Luz Imagiology Distinguished Once Again

“Myomaps – quantification in cardiac magnetic resonance”, a paper by Fernando Gonçalves, imaging technician from Hospital da Luz Lisboa, was distinguished with the first prize for best presentation in the area of Free Oral Presentations of the 13th National Congress of Radiology, taking place from 4 to 7 May, at Palácio de Congressos do Algarve, in Albufeira.

Organized by the Portuguese Society of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine with the the theme “Abdominal Radiology”, the National Congress of Radiology, usually dedicated to the medical aspect of radiology, included for the first time, similarly to other European and world radiology congresses, a parallel program entitled “Radiographers,” with themes specifically designed for imaging technicians activity, thus contributing to value the progressive and necessary team work and complementarity between the medical imaging area and healthcare technologies.

The combined program counted with the participation of radiologists and imaging technicians from Luz Saúde group (Hospital da Luz Lisboa, Hospital da Arrábida, Clíria – Hospital Privado, Hospital da Luz Setúbal, Hospital da Luz Clínica de Oeiras and Hospital da Luz Clínica da Amadora), as guest speakers or presenting free communications, all with high level of quality.
