TITLE: Cadaveric workshop on Ultrasound Guided Biopsy
SAIRAD 2018 aims at giving the young radiologists and budding trainees a chance to hear and learn the art of imaging-guided biopsies from eminent speakers and to sharpen their skills in performing real-time USG guided biopsies.
The department of Radiodiagnosis at SHRI SATHYA SAI MEDICAL COLLEGE AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE conducted SAIRAD 2018 in the ASTRA cadaver lab in the college block of the campus on 11 October 2018. The workshop catered to the diverse needs of the delegates in providing them multiple chances at attempting imaging-guided biopsies under the expert supervision of the guest speakers and the workshop moderators. Real-time USG guided biopsies were performed and bedside classes were given by the speakers.
SAIRAD- 2018 was held on 11-10-2018 in the ASTRA Cadaver lab. Registrations started at 8.30 am with 42 delegates registering and confirming their participation in the workshop.
The official inaugural ceremony commenced at 9.30 am with the prayer song ‘TAMIL THAI VAZHTHU‘ following which the organizing chairman and Head of the department,
Prof.Dr.I.Gurubharath was invited to give the welcoming address. He gave an insight into the need for simulation-based biopsy workshop. He stressed the fact that all other modalities of simulation are compromised by the absence of normal anatomical relations and tissue handling. But image-guided procedures will give better diagnostic yield and safer care for the patients.
His welcoming address received a thunderous applause as the purpose of the workshop was made clear to all the delegates.
