Second Annual CSBI Conference
Join us next Spring! We're pleased to announce the CSBI is holding a conference in Quebec City. The conference is the premier forum to discuss the latest innovations in Canadian breast imaging. The event takes place on May 18-19, 2019 at Le Chateau Laurier. The CSBI is happy to hold its event in conjunction with the SRQ's conference, Breast Imaging - The Cutting Edge, which takes place at the same time as the CSBI's symposium.

The idea of forming a group dedicated to breast imaging in Canada has been going on for some time. Professionals interested in breast imaging have been engaged in the European Society of Breast Imaging as well as the Society of Breast Imaging in the United States. Recognizing that there was a need for a place to discuss uniquely Canadian issues related to breast imaging, the CSBI was founded in October 2017 with the support of the CAR. Founding members include senior leading breast imagers from across the country including: Drs. Jean Seely (Ontario), Nancy Wadden (Newfoundland), Shiela Appavoo (Alberta), Anabel Scaranelo (Ontario), Yves Loisel (Quebec) and Stephanie Schofield (Nova Scotia).
The CSBI is a home for Canadian breast imaging professionals and patients to discuss best practices, pressures on the system and to celebrate successes. The CSBI will also be a focused vehicle to bring breast imaging stories from Canada to the rest of the world and vice versa.
