Engagement Opportunities Hosted by Bracco at RSNA 2023:
MR Symposium: Bracco presents “The Future is Now: The Novel GBCA Gadopiclenol.” This symposium will feature insights from leaders in radiology on how they have implemented VUEWAY injection into their practice since its FDA approval last year, using half the gadolinium (0.05 mmol/kg) compared to other macrocyclic GBCAs with approved doses of 0.1 mmol/kg in approved indications in the U.S.i-v The event will take place on Monday, November 27 at McCormick Place S101AB, South Building, from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM CST. Please see Indications and Important Safety Information below, including Boxed Warning.
“I am delighted to participate in this Bracco-sponsored symposium, as it will be a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about gadopiclenol and our initial experience with it for abdominal MR imaging at the University of Wisconsin to date,” said Perry J. Pickhardt, MD, Professor of Radiology and Chief of Gastrointestinal Imaging at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
Max Wintermark, MD, Professor and Chair of Neuroradiology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, said, “I am excited to participate in the Round Table Symposium sponsored by Bracco Diagnostics Inc. This will be a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about gadopiclenol and what our experience has been at MD Anderson Cancer Center to date.”
Supporting the Future of Diagnostic Imaging: The Applied Radiology “Leaders on the Horizon” Residency Program, which is supported by Bracco through an unrestricted educational grant, is expanding globally and will now include all diagnostic imaging modalities. Through this program, scholarships are bestowed upon six radiology resident applicants whose submitted research papers (three clinical research papers and three clinical review articles) are selected for publication by Applied Radiology. These individuals will be honored at a special evening reception hosted by Applied Radiology during RSNA 2023.
Additionally, Bracco is thrilled to be entering the fourth year of its 10-year commitment to donate $450,000 to the RSNA Research & Education (R&E) Foundation.
