Convenor Invitation

Clinical Radiology Convenor Invitation

On behalf of the New Zealand Branch of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists, and The New Zealand Radiology Education Trust we would like to invite you to the 2021 New Zealand Annual Scientific Meeting. Wellington provides a lively positive energy complementing our conference. Our capital of cool is celebrated as New Zealand’s arts, film, coffee, culinary, craft beer, events and political heart.

The focus of the scientific programme in 2021 is a range of old fashioned general radiology topics and everyday useful learnings. The content will have an interactive focus with more audience participation and case based learning at high speed and volume.  We will hear from our two international invited speakers on head and neck, and msk and are delighted to be hosting Prof Laurie Loevner from Philadelphia and A/Prof Bruno Giuffre from Sydney.  We also have a wide range of local experts in their fields to share their knowledge.  The New Zealand meeting is well known for its collegial atmosphere and excellent networking opportunities, and 2021 will be no different.

We also acknowledge and thank our industry partners for their incredibly valuable and continued support, which ensures the success of the New Zealand Annual Scientific Meetings. We look forward to seeing you in Wellington.

Radiation Oncology Convenor Invitation

Welcome to Wellington! One of the coolest capitals in the world!! This year’s RANZCR NZ ASM is scheduled to take place at the Intercontinental Hotel between 6th and 8th of August. The meeting had to be rescheduled from last year for reasons that everyone is unfortunately familiar with.

In keeping with the current fashion, the meeting will be available to both live and virtual attendees – but we hope to see you in person for the Wellywood inspired dinner.

We have put together an exciting line up of talks covering a number of tumour sites with a focus on the ‘G’ sites. Dr Corinne Doll, from the University of Calgary, Canada, will enlighten us about ways to improve the treatment of cervical and anal canal cancers. Prof Vedang Murthy, Tata Memorial Center, Mumbai, India will give us an update about radiation therapy in prostate cancer, with a focus on the POP-RT trial.

We hope you will be able to join us to learn, celebrate, re-establish connections, and show your support for your College!
