Dear friends and colleagues,

International Pediatric Radiology (IPR) a collaborative initiative of the SPR and the ESPR had its origin in Toronto in 1987 and has raised the global visibility of pediatric radiology. Carrying on this great tradition, the 7th IPR Congress, will convene in Chicago next year.

Chicago – the heart of US cities is the perfect venue. The Fairmont Hotel, located walking distance from world-class museums, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, theatre, music, Lake Michigan, parks and of course, shopping, 
will offer a unique opportunity to renew old friendships, to establish new, and to liaise professionally. The social program will make the most of Chicago’s historic and architectural heritage. 

The scientific program will include world-renowned speakers, sunrise workshops, keynote lectures with scientific sessions, posters, and the ever-popular Laurent Garel-hosted game show.  This year for the first time we will feature a separate radiographer’s program with content specifically targeted for pediatric radiology technologists and radiographers.  

IPR 2016 kicks off on Sunday the 15th of May and will run through Friday.  We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!


       Dr. James Donaldson                                        Dr. Karen Rosendahl
