British Institute of Radiology Annual Congress, 1985

Scope and Content

Material relating to the British Institute of Radiology Annual Congress which was held at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology from 17th to 19th April, 1985, to commemorate ninety years of imaging. Ian Isherwood, as President of the British Institute of Radiology, was chiefly responsible for the organisation and coordination of the Congress. The overall theme of the Congress was Information Technology in the Radiological Sciences. Attended by some nine hundred registrants, the main part of the Congress involved lectures, workshops and symposia on radiology and imaging, as well as the largest industrial exhibition for radiology ever held in the UK up to that date. A special feature of the meeting was a transatlantic satellite link between Manchester and the University of California in San Francisco, which permitted the live transmission of the Mayneord Lecture which took place during the Congress, and enabled the exchange of digital imaging information and expert panel discussion. The Congress was the first time the British Institute of Radiology had met in Manchester since its foundation.
