Your program committee is ramping up preparations for the 2024 SABI Annual meeting, scheduled for October 5-9, 2024 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. Mark your calendars today!
We invite you to submit ideas for talks for the annual meeting by February 7 using this submission portal. In addition to traditional body imaging interpretation and disease management, you will find options for speaking on artificial intelligence, and non-interpretive topics such as leadership and mentorship, quality and safety, radiology reporting, health equity, and DEI.
Also, along with the US, CT, and MR Innovations sessions, we welcome submissions on Molecular and Hybrid Imaging. This year, we are bringing back a variant of “Don’t let this happen to you” by putting a new spin on it- “Don’t let this happen to THEM” where we would like for you to submit your idea for a 5-minute presentation that depicts how imaging redirected clinical care from going down the wrong path.
We also are planning a rapid-fire session on workplace hacks where, in a 5-minute presentation, you share with your SABI colleagues something you do or have access to at work that makes your job more efficient, meaningful, or just plain better. Meeting highlights separate from plenary talks and workshops will include a special ½ day session on Sustainability in Radiology or Image Optimization Update, an AI Rodeo, our cutting edge “Vanguards of Research” session and our Ted Like talks.
To continue and further enhance the SABI tradition of dynamic, highly interactive, and engaging annual meetings, we will again emphasize panel discussions and debates. We will also explore using a ‘longitudinal” mentoring of plenary talks given by some of the society’s rising stars, more on that later in a separate request towards the spring.
Per our mission, we remain committed to developing young faculty. We are asking that senior SABI members and fellows encourage their younger colleagues to join you in a collaborative workshop or roundtable, or to submit their ideas for the meeting (will require them to join if they are not already members and are asked to present).
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2024!
On behalf of the Program Committee,
Desiree E. Morgan, MDPresident-elect SABI
