Hospital da Luz neuroradiologist speaks at largest specialty conference

The Hospital da Luz and Hospital Beatriz Ângelo neuroradiologist Pedro Vilela was one of the speakers at the Jornadas Paulistas de Radiología, the largest medical event in South America, which last April welcomed more than 20,000 people to the city of São Paulo, Brazil. Pedro Vilela spoke on 'RM in Microvascular and Inflammatory Diseases', ‘Diseases that simulate stroke and pitfalls' and 'ASL: Cerebrovascular Reactivity'.

These days, organized by the Paulista Society of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (SPRDI), this year included a special moment at the solemn opening session, with the celebration of its partnership with the Iberian Societies of Radiology and Neuroradiology. Present were some of the most prominent experts in this area, including António José da Rocha, President of SPRDI, Luis Donoso Bach, President of the European Society of Radiology, José Luis del Cura, President of the Spanish Society of Medical Radiology, Filipe Caseiro Alves, President of the Portuguese Society of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, and Pedro Vilela, in his capacity as President of the Portuguese Society of Neuroradiology.

The Portuguese expert directs the Neuroradiology Service at Beatriz Ângelo Hospital and has been responsible for Neuroradiology at Hospital da Luz since 2007.
