  • 1. London Imaging Discovery June 16th 2007 Report & Synopsis The second annual London Imaging Discovery Forum, hosted on June 16th 2007 at the London Convention Centre, was once again a marvelous success. Coordinated through Robarts Research Institute’s Imaging Research Laboratories in collaboration with the Department of Diagnostic Radiology & Nuclear Medicine and the Schulich school of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario, this conference was pioneered by Dr. Rethy Chhem, Chief of Radiology at the London Health Sciences Centre; and Dr. Aaron Fenster, Director of the Imaging Research Lab. The London Imaging Discovery conference has been named “The LID”, the organ of sight or vision, which was selected to capture the paradigm of London as a unique place for many imaging discoveries. This forum is designed to replace the former Radiology Residency Day, while also bringing together radiologists, clinicians, scientists and students from London Medical Imaging Community. The goal of the LID forum is to create a platform to connect those in the field of medical research with those in the field of clinical medicine, to encourage harmonious relationships between medical professionals (and future professionals) in these two distinct areas. Attendance
  • 2. The key attendees of the LID Forum are local scientists, physicians, clinicians & radiologists, residents, fellows and graduate students from the London Area. This year we attracted nearly 150 registrants from within these categories with more than a third being students. The chart below shows a breakdown of participating institutes: 9% 17% 37% 12% 19% 2% 4% LHRI/SJHC LHSC RRI UWO Other Out of Town Sponsors The success of the LID forum relies on the diversity of the attendees and the research experience they bring with them. The following graph shows the breakdown of attendees based on their current position in the field of medical imaging. 9% 5% 8% 3% 6% 5% 19%5% 4% 36% Clinicians Fellows Others Radiologists Research Tech/Assistants Residents Scientists Sponsor Reps Staff Students Scientific Sessions
  • 3. Topics at the second annual London Imaging Discovery Forum focused on various imaging modalities such as Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging and themes ranging from Breast Imaging to Schizophrenia. Select moderators from the London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph’s Healthcare headed the morning, mid-morning and afternoon sessions, with a poster reception of 43 posters at the close of the day. (See Appendix A – LID 2007 Schedule) The London Imaging Discovery Forum, having replaced the Radiology Residency Day, had a number of resident presentations from the Department of Diagnostic Radiology & Nuclear Medicine at the University of Western Ontario, with 3 out of 10 presentations. The attendees were also graced by the expertise of Dr. Martin Yaffe who spoke about “Developments in Breast Cancer Imaging”. Awards Dr. Justin Amann presented the resident awards to the various award winners from the Radiology Residency Program: • The Rankin/Singh Award for 2007 was presented to Dr. Mustafa Khan • The Carey/Singh Award for 2007 was presented to Dr. Branko Budisin • The Resident’s Day Research Award for 2007 was presented to Dr. Allison Shaikh. • The RSNA Roentgen Resident Research Award winner for 2007 was Dr. Allison Shaikh. • Dr. Richard Rankin was recognized by the residents for his excellent teaching with the 2007 Resident’s Choice Award. Additionally, 37 student poster presenters (out of 43 total poster presenters) competed for the best student poster awards. Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals donated a first place student cash award, and Compudata Systems donated the second and third place student poster prizes. Presenters were a conglomeration of students, scientists and various research assistants and programmers from Robarts Research Institute, London Health Sciences Centre and Department of the Department of Diagnostic
  • 4. Radiology & Nuclear Medicine and the Schulich school of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario the University of Western Ontario. The 3 student poster winners for “best overall student poster” were: 1st place – Patrick Granton, Graduate Student at Robarts Research Institute 2nd place – Raul Rupsingh, Graduate Student at Robarts Research Institute 3rd place – John Conklin, Graduate Student at Lawson Health Research Intitute (See appendix B for full list of poster presenters) Sponsors Thanks to our sponsors for their support of the second annual London Imaging Discovery Forum. Because of their contributions the event was a huge success. With the future support of our sponsors, the London Imaging Discovery forum is sure to be a continuing success. • Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals • Compudata Systems • The Department of Diagnostic Radiology & Nuclear Medicine and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario • GE Healthcare • Mercury Blueprinting • Philips Medical Systems • Robarts Research Institute • Siemens Medical Solutions
