After overcoming the adversities caused by the cancellation of the 50th São Paulo Radiological Meeting (JPR 2020) due to the pandemic of COVID-19, the Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging Society of São Paulo (SPR) mobilized and organized the JPR 2020 Virtual in record time. This online event will present 26 Lives and seven Plenary Sessions free of charge to all interested parties directly from the JPR website, although content is recommended only to medical professionals.
In addition to Live Broadcasts, JPR 2020 Virtual will have more than 300 previously unpublished classes, remotely recorded, with lecturers (Brazilians and foreigners) and themes from the original program of the Meeting, divided into the following courses: 2nd Interventional Radiology Meeting; Abdominal, Digestive and Genitourinary; Head and neck; Cardiovascular; Women's Imaging; Radiology IT; Breast; Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging; Musculoskeletal; Neuroradiology; Oncology; Pediatrics; Chest, and General Ultrasonography. The program will also include classes from the Latin Safe initiative, videos of practical demonstrations from the Ultrasound, Intervention and Innovation Villages, and oral presentations of Scientific Papers, content that brings together the scientific production of the main Diagnostic Imaging centers in Brazil.
Lives will be held from May 27 to June 24. After that, there will be a pause, but all recordings will be made available on a special page within the new Digital Video Library, a product with exclusive access for SPR active members. On July 27, broadcasts will resume at the same times, and will continue until August 12. The content will be broadcasted from Monday to Thursday at 6:30 pm, and on Fridays at 5:00 pm (BT, UTC -3).
The Radiology 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.
RSNA continues to support JPR 2020 Virtual Meeting, which was decisive in enabling the participation of 20 foreign teachers, previously confirmed in the on-site program, now reconfirmed in the online one.
The Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging Society of São Paulo (SPR) has closely followed, with all its professionalism and seriousness, the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil and worldwide and decided - with great sadness, but a lot of courage - to cancel the 50th São Paulo Radiological Meeting (JPR 2020), which would take place on April 30 – 3 May, at the Transamerica Expo Center.
The decision was made after considering 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.
Despite the adversities, SPR managed to overcome the challenges and organize in record time the online edition of the largest Radiology event in Latin America: JPR 2020 Virtual. This online event will offer SPR active members more than 300 lessons from the original JPR program, part of which will be broadcasted live. The Scientific Papers – Oral Presentations approved for the event will also be part of JPR Virtual, content that is very relevant to SPR because it brings together the scientific production of the main Diagnostic Imaging centers in the country.
