“It is the largest congress in Latin America because of its importance and tradition”

Dr. Alejandro Zuluaga Santamaría is a radiologist at the Centro de Diagnóstico Médico (CEDIMED), Associate Professor of Radiology at UPB – Pontifical Bolivarian University and CES University in Medellín, Colombia. He is also Director of the Specialization Program in Radiology at UPB.

In the last five years, he has investigated the usefulness of magnetic resonance and multislice tomography in patients with ventricular and atrial arrhythmias.

This year, he will come to JPR – it will be his first time at the event. Know his expectations:

“It will be a privilege to participate because I know that it is one of the first four Congresses of Radiology in the world and the largest congress in Latin America because of its importance, tradition and number of participants. There, speakers at the highest level discuss the latest technological advances in the different subspecialties of Radiology.

I will take part in lectures in Cardiovascular Radiology. An important feature of JPR is the simultaneous translation in three languages (Portuguese, Spanish and English), which facilitates the participation of people from all countries of America and other continents, without barriers to communication, promoting the participants’ academic and social interaction.

The knowledge gained during the conference will help participants adapt their work protocols and interpret imaging exams to the state of the art of radiology, benefiting patients.”
