The 7th Baltic Congress of Radiology took place in Kaunas on 4-6 October 2018. About 600 radiology specialists from various countries of the Baltic region participated in the conference. The radiology specialists had the opportunity to listen to presenters not only from Lithuania, but also from Latvia, Estonia, Germany and other countries.
The first Baltic Congress of Radiology, supported by the various Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian associations of radiology specialists, took place in Kaunas in 2006. The positive response to the first Congress indicated that regular meetings of radiology specialists of the Baltic countries are very important and even necessary to share scientific and clinical achievements as well as to establish contacts for future cooperation and to solve problems of shared concern. Thus, since 2006 the Baltic Congress of Radiology has been held every second year in a different country of the Baltic region, that is, 2006 – Kaunas, 2008 – Tartu, 2010 – Riga, 2012 – Vilnius, 2014 – Pärnu, 2016 – Liepāja, 2018 – Kaunas.
UAB “Graina” attracted a great deal of attention at the Congress. We presented the ultrasound system Mindray DC-80, and all the radiologists attending the Congress had the opportunity to get acquainted with its broad diagnostic capabilities.
