Dear Colleague

We invite you to join us for the 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting. The 2023 meeting will be held on Hamilton Island, in the tropics of Queensland.

Hamilton Island is located in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands, part of Queensland's idyllic Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the natural world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is a great opportunity to advance your knowledge and skills in paediatric radiology whilst immersing yourself in the wonders of the reef.

Due to the nature of the Island and the surroundings, we encourage you to book early to ensure flights and accommodation. A discounted room rate has been held at the Reef Hotel (located at the conference venue), we have limited rooms available so please reserve early to ensure a place. If you would like to extend your dates prior or post, please email the requested dates directly to so we can apply to extend your booking.

Direct flights are available from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Paediatric Radiology in the Reef
Navigating the Depths of Paediatric Imaging

We are excited to announce our program and our keynote speaker, Dr Susan Palasis, who is the Director of Paediatric Neuroradiology at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.  While surrounded by the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, we will dive into the Great spectrum of Paediatric Radiology, and uncover hidden pearls.  We will sail through sessions covering Neuroradiology, and Musculoskeletal, Abdominopelvic and Cardiac Imaging.  Parts of this course will be chartered by colleagues from Neurosurgery and Orthopaedics, providing an invaluable clinical perspective.  We look forward to embarking on this journey with you.
