British Society of Urogenital Radiology 2014 Scientific AGM

Dear Colleagues,

I am the trainee rep for the British Society of Urogenital Radiology and I am writing to let you know that the dates and programme for the 2014 Scientific AGM have just been announced.
This year the meeting will be held at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds on 20 – 21st November. A prostate MRI workshop will be held on 19th November.
The programme can be downloaded from the website ( and it looks fantastic. The programme has been specifically designed to appeal to the general radiologist, and that is particularly relevant to trainees doing exams.

A call for abstracts will be uploaded on to the website shortly so keep checking. National poster presentations always look good on the CV.

There is a reduced AGM fee for BSUR members so if you are interested in joining the society please check the website. Feel free to email me if you have any queries.

Best wishes,
Faye Cuthbert
BSUR Trainee Rep
