Convenor Thanks

Thank you for your support

On behalf of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists, and the New Zealand Radiology Education Trust, we would like to thank you for taking the time to attend the NZ ASM held in Wellington over the weekend. After the initial postponement in 2020, we feel privileged to have seen so many colleagues and industry supporters together again at a face to face meeting. We also hope that our delegates who were unable to attend in person, enjoyed the virtual experience. We are thrilled to have reached a record attendance for the New Zealand ASM of 300, including on-site, virtual and industry delegates.

There are a number of people who we would like to thank. Firstly, our incredible international faculty for taking the time to contribute to the scientific programme. Professor Laurie Loevner, and Associate Professor Bruno Giuffre for the Clinical Radiology programme and Dr Corinne Doll and Professor Vedang Murthy for the Radiation Oncology programme. We also would like to express our appreciation to the local faculty in both specialties, who contributed to the meeting. Thank you also to our multitude of Chairpersons and Moderators who helped the meeting run so smoothly.

We would also like to acknowledge all of our industry supporters. Without them our meeting could not take place. Special thanks go to Varian (Platinum Sponsor), Philips (Keynote Speaker Sponsor of A/Prof Giuffre), Siemens (Barista Sponsor), Radiology DU (Happy Hour Sponsor), Elekta (Sponsor of Dr Doll), and Pacific Radiology (Stationary Sponsor).

Congratulations to the winners of the proffered paper and poster prizes who were as follows: New Zealand Radiology Education Trust Poster Prize - Kyle Grabowski, Obex Medical Registrar Research Prize - Hugh McHugh, and the FRONNZ Award - April Xu-Holland. Thank you also to all of the poster presenters.

We look forward to seeing you all at the 2022 Meeting in Queenstown.


With best wishes,

Drs Nick Humphries and Lisa Sweetman (Clinical Radiology)
Drs Nichola Naidoo, Ziad Thotathil and Miriama Delaibatiki (Radiation Oncolology)
