Overview:

The Imaging & Diagnostics Conference will host over 300 attendees and experts for a reverting agenda featuring insights from practitioners in the continent.  Heavy focus will be on radiology as a practice in Africa and its role in medicine considering the current healthcare system set-up.  We will also address clinical topics giving attendees a well-rounded agenda with multiple focus areas.
