Speaker - Professor Charbel Saade
Prof. Charbel Saade graduated from the University of Sydney in radiography, Masters in CT and MRI, and a PhD in contrast media delivery. Charbel is currently working at the American University of Beirut as an Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of Medical Imaging Sciences. He is a frequent lecturer in international congresses like ASMIRT, RSNA, ECR and Arab Health. Charbel has co-authored more than 60 original papers with more than 70 abstracts presented. Charbel has a strong clinical background in the field of X-ray, CT and MRI. Charbel is also Adjunct Professor of Medical Imaging at King Khaled University KSA as well as editor in chief of the international journal of medical imaging. Charbel is the owner and convenor of MDCT.com.au and has been teaching radiographers for more than 10 years with the latest tips and tricks to reduce contrast media administration and radiation dose whilst maintaining image quality without compromising image quality. His particular focus also has been driven towards cross-sectional anatomy and pathology and its effects on image techniques. Charbel has a particular focus on education by changing radiology "one image at a time".
The forecast for this week starts out partly cloudy clearing up to fabulously sunny days by the weekend with temperatures above 15 degrees expected. The mornings will be a cool 12-14 degrees so be prepared, especially if you plan to get up early and enjoy the spectacular Sydney City or Darling Harbor.
