    RSNA/SPR Partnership
    The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the Radiological and Diagnostic Imaging Society of Sao Paulo (SPR) have formed a partnership for the joint planning of the 2016 Jornada Paulista de Radiologia (JPR), the leading medical imaging meeting in Latin America. The two organizations teamed up to present JPR in 2014, and will partner again in 2018. Learn more about this partnership.

    The event attracts more than 20,000 people including representatives from 110 companies. The program includes courses across a variety of subspecialty areas and RSNA has direct participation in defining the scientific program for the event.

    “RSNA is proud to partner with SPR to present JPR 2016, the largest meeting of diagnostic imaging in Latin America. Our joint partnership is the basis for a strong educational program that supports development of the radiology discipline and provides training internationally. RSNA worked closely with SPR to plan meeting content, provide speakers, and develop materials and courses that are not typically offered at JPR. We look forward to collaborating with SPR to bring unique opportunities to radiologists in Brazil.”

    – Valerie P. Jackson, MD, RSNA Board of Directors Liaison for Education and Co-Chair, JPR Program Planning Committee


    “We learned a lot from RSNA during the JPR 2014 organization. Now we will strengthen the exchange of experiences between the two entities, with the responsibility of further improving the level of the Congress.”

    – Antonio Soares Souza, MD SPR President
