ABOUT THE EVENT
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Society of Radiology (ISR) along with the World Federation of Pediatric Imaging (WFPI) will co-host a webinar on World TB Day to mark the release of updated WHO guidance on the management of tuberculosis (TB) in children and adolescents. The new WHO guidelines include recommendations that span the TB cascade of care, from diagnostic approaches to treatment of both drug susceptible and drug resistant TB, to models of care to optimize TB prevention and case detection efforts. The new recommendations provide an opportunity to significantly improve the care provided to children, adolescents and families affected by TB.

TB remains one of the top infectious killers in the world, it can affect everyone, but children and young adolescents (aged 0-14 years included) are particularly vulnerable. They accounted for 11% of the 10 million people who fell ill with TB in 2020 and sadly over a quarter of a million children died. Detecting TB in children can be challenging due to symptoms that overlap with other childhood illnesses and difficulties in confirming a diagnosis due to the paucibacillary nature of TB disease, especially in young children.

This World TB Day we are bringing together a panel of pediatricians, clinicians, radiologists, radiographers, TB affected communities, policy makers and program implementers to raise awareness about TB in children and adolescents. We will discuss the new WHO recommendations on the management of TB in children and adolescents, with a special focus on the role of radiology to diagnose and treat TB in children. This webinar will be of special interest and relevance to an audience who are involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of TB in children and who want to better understand the role of radiology in these efforts.

The ISR collaborates with the WHO as an NGO in official relations, to facilitate the global endeavors to improve patient care and population health through medical imaging.

The WFPI is another important cooperation partner of the ISR. To intensify cooperation in pediatric imaging, the two organizations have recently signed a collaboration agreement.

Recording of ISR-WFUMB-WHO webinar available free of charge

I am writing to you on behalf of the International Society of Radiology (ISR) to inform you about a special opportunity that I believe will be of value for your society members.

As you may have read, the ISR, jointly with the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) and the World Health Organization (WHO), organized a Webinar on Safer Maternal and Newborn Care – the Role of Ultrasound on 14 September.

The webinar was held on the occasion of World Patient Safety Day (WPSD), which is celebrated yearly on 17 September and this time focused on safety in maternal and newborn care. As you can see from the program, the webinar gathered high-level speakers not only from the host organizations, but also from radiological technology and midwifery, among others, and paid attention to different settings.

It is my particular pleasure to inform you that the recording of the webinar is available free of charge here.

I believe that this is an extremely valuable source for the radiological community and our partner disciplines, which has also been confirmed by the positive feedback from live and on-demand viewers.

Offering this webinar for free is part of the ISR’s mission to promote global radiological quality and safety and to bring high quality radiological education, especially to underserved areas, which is only possible thanks to the support from our member societies.

Sincerely,

Renato A. Mendonça
ISR President
