The Radiological and Diagnostic Imaging Society of São Paulo (SPR) and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) began talks to outline an educational-scientific partnership focused on JPR in September 2012. After many meetings and discussions, a committee composed of four directors from SPR and four from RSNA designed the current JPR model jointly organized by the two societies. In practice, this model means having at the head of the main programs of the event (including Abdomen, Breast, Neuro, Musculoskeletal, among others) an SPR coordinator and another RSNA coordinator defining themes, selecting lecturers, suggesting the dynamics of sessions. This JPR bilateral coordination model was put into practice during the 2014, 2016, and 2018 meetings, which made up the first cycle of the project. Considered by both societies to be very successful, this partnership was renewed by three more JPR editions - 2020, 2022, and 2024, which will now compose the second cycle of this project.
The decision was made after pondering difficult and delicate questions, based on a careful analysis of the context and all scenarios, taking into account the main scientific data about coronavirus and the guidelines of governmental and health agencies. SPR would like to thank everyone who, until now, was part of the 50th São Paulo Radiological Meeting (JPR 2020). We move forward with the commitment to make an even better Meeting in 2021, and asking now for everyone’s support. To those who have questions, suggestions, or requirements, we ask that you contact us through the relationship channels available on the SPR website. All will be answered and guided, as soon as possible.
