Dusseldorf, April 26, 2021 – The impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on European radiology services will be examined in depth, as part of a newly launched series of virtual events coming up in May.
The sessions will focus on how radiology can help to lead health systems out of the difficulties caused by the pandemic, by focusing on the patient experience and maximising the use of new technologies. This will be done by sharing lessons learned and perspectives from within the European radiology community.
The events will make-up the Fujifilm Healthcare Digital Tour event, which is being hosted by FUJIFILM Europe GmbH. The company’s European Medical Systems Division aims to create a “hub of experience” throght webinars, podcasts, video cases and white papers.
The attendees can watch live debates, expect real-time knowledge with the latest case studies in radiology and take part in conversations around the hot topics that animate post-COVID-19 radiology with seven sessions over the course of two days in English, Spanish and Italian. They will be able to discover new technologies that impact on the approach to the patients and be inspired by key opinion leaders from the journalistic and clinical world.
Session will take place on 10th and 11th May from 12pm CET, attendees can register for free here.
