We are emerging from COVID 19 and the government is asking us to get back to business. Elements Resort and Spa in Byron Bay is the perfect place to do this and maybe get a little bit of a break from our hectic year after the conference ends. RADAIM Business 2021 will focus on the business of Medical Imaging and provide high-end management and vendor product guidance for the near future. Board executives, Radiologists, purchasing/procurement officers, practice managers, department heads, modality team leaders, decision-making MIT’s and anyone interested in future trends – this is for you.
Registration will be available mid-January 2021 with speakers and preliminary program coming shortly.
It will be great to see you all in person once again – its been too long!
