Trainee success at 2017 ImNO Symposium

News

March 29, 2017 - Robarts trainees took home top prizes at the Imaging Network Ontario (ImNO) 2017 Symposium earlier this month.

The ImNO promotes Canada’s role as a leader in medical imaging innovation. Its annual two-day Symposium encourages discussions regarding new imaging programs and careers in medical imaging, and serves as a forum where participants can share marketing and management expertise. This year’s event was held in London, Ontario.
