Radiologist-in-Chief Dr. George Bisset will be honored for his contribution to pediatric radiology at the 45th annual Sociedade Paulista de Radiologia (SPR) meeting held in Brazil. The conference is the biggest diagnostic imaging meeting in Latin America and the fourth largest in the world. Bisset will be the first non-Brazilian to receive honorary membership in this organization.
“This award is a great honor and pays tribute to our strong international relationship,” Bisset said. “Texas Children’s global reach goes beyond where our patients are located, but is relevant in the knowledge we are able to share with our counterparts across the world.”
The annual meeting, which takes place in May, will have more than 20,000 in attendance. Bisset has spent time in Brazil partnering to educate physicians on imaging best practices and has helped the Sao Paulo Radiological meeting improve its relationship with the Radiological Society of North America and the North American scientific community. Bisset has lectured at the meeting several times.
While there to receive his award, he also will present a talk on Errors in Radiology: How to Recognize and Avoid Them and another on Common Abdominal Emergencies in Pediatrics: Our Approach.
