JTDear friends and colleagues,London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, holding an enviable record in the evolution of medicine over the centuries. For these reasons and many others, it is the perfect venue for our International Paediatric Radiology Congress, held every tenth year in Europe. We feel proud to have IPR 2. This meeting will address the importance of a true global perspective within childrens imaging and the challenges we face in an international setting with wide variations in finance, equipment, human resources and expertise. We feel it particularly pertinent that in London 2. World Federation of Imaging, a committed visionary group with a strategic plan to explore global inequalities well documented by WHO, and address them tactically with a focus on education, training and partnership across all nations. This model is already underway, led by Mdecines sans frontires, and we need to find solutions for optimising imaging in children, as a first step in this chain. This will require detailed strategy and partnership between all existing societies, and commitment and buy in from individual members and societies. More ubiquitous albeit sometimes basic computer facilities mean that we can network to more remote medical sites requiring our help, where there is a dearth of trained medical staff. Basic radiology equipment and Internet link, a digital camera and willingness to share expertise are good basic requirements to start this global network, which is so badly required. We hope that you will join us at this important time for the World Federation launch at IPR 2. The IPR programme includes a selection of world renowned speakers, debates, competitions, a choice of six different sunrise sessions each morning, 4. Londons legendary and unique artistic, historic and architectural heritage. You will be spoilt for choice, kept on your toes, and have your intellectual capabilities stretched to the fullest, in what promises to be an action packed week If youve been to an IPR meeting before, you may be expecting a two day course followed by a three day conference. Were doing things differently this year, and the days are being split into course sessions in the morning and scientific sessions in the afternoon. We are delighted to welcome Professor Sam Gambhir from Stanford USA, a world leader in molecular imaging, who will present the Jacques LefebvreNeuhauser Lecture on this theme, one of the highlights of a strong scientific programme. We are fortunate to have many global medical leaders at hand, who are resident in London, and on whom we have called to make this an important clinico radiological experience. We will be holding debates, and the IPR 2. Creamy Scrambled Eggs. Olympics, very topical, as London will host the 2. Olympic Games. The whole event swings into action in the afternoon of Friday 2.
