Symposium Chair Welcome Note


SEHA is celebrating the World International Radiology day this year by organizing a very rich Academic Radiology symposium over two days 9th/10th November 2018.The activity is run by Alain Hospital and it will take place at the Fatima College Health and Sciences Auditorium in Al Ain City.  For many years, we have clearly set the benchmark for Radiology conferences in the Middle East and this year's event further stresses our commitment to maintain this lead with our focused pursuit of excellence.


Our two-days symposium program with a theme "Emergency Conditions Imaging and Interventions – A Multidisciplinary Approach" has been designed to cover a breadth of topics in Radiology, including almost all the key sub-specialties of Radiology. Presentations prepared by global experts as well as panel discussions will provide our delegates with the very latest information on best practices and the most recent developments in Emergency clinical conditions, imaging, diagnosis and treatment.


The main conference sessions will feature advances in trauma, MSK, gastrointestinal, genito-urinary, gynecological, Neurology, pediatrics', vascular imaging and interventions.

I am pleased to announce that we will have sessions on complications of bariatric surgeries and Gastric balloons and other weight loss interventions to get the latest advances from the international and regional speakers in their respective fields. We will also continue to host an open forum for the public to encourage participation and interaction with the experts mainly to raise awareness about role of Radiology in patient management. The program encourages discussion and interaction with thought leaders in the field of Radiology.


I look forward to welcoming you to this significant event and feel confident that you will appreciate both the scientific program and beauty of our host city, Al Ain (The Oasis Garden City of UAE).
