5.2 International Renal Imaging Meetings

This task force will organise the bi-annual international scientific meetings on renal MRI, in cooperation with a local organising committee. 

The first international meeting on renal MRI was held in Bordeaux, France, in 2015 (http://www.renalmri.org/action/8). It predates PARENCHIMA but was attended by all PARENCHIMA participants and provided the momentum for the funding application to COST. 

The second international meeting on renal MRI was held in Berlin, Germany, in 2017 and was co-organised by PARENCHIMA (http://www.renalmri.org/action/13). 

The third international meeting on renal MRI will be held in Nottingham, UK, in 2019 and will be co-organised by PARENCHIMA with the UK Renal Imaging Network (UKRIN).

The fourth international meeting on renal MRI will be held in 2021 and will thus fall beyond the funding period of PARENCHIMA, but the expectation is that this task force will remain involved in the planning up until may 2021 (end of PARENCHIMA) in order to guarantee continuity and enable transfer of experience. After 3 meetings in Europe, our expectation would be that the 4th meeting is be held in another part of the world.
