Pediatric Radiology Symposium
14 March 2023

The Pediatric Radiology Symposium took place at “Arabkir” MC featuring guest speaker Professor Erich Sorantin from the University of Graz, Austria.

The days of symposium were filled with news and intense discussions, in which over 150 specialists from “Arabkir” Medical Center and other medical institutions of Yerevan and regions participated. 

Professor Erich Sorantin not only heads the Department of Pediatric Radiology at Graz University Hospital in Austria, but also leads the Digital Information and Image Processing Research Group. He coordinates a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional academic network in Central Europe focused on developing biomedical imaging and technologies, implementing them in practical medicine, and ensuring radiation protection.

The symposium provided a great opportunity to hear Professor Sorantin’s motivating, live and interactive lectures, participate in a practical ultrasound course, discuss clinical cases, as well as service development opportunities. 

The symposium was organized by the Diagnostic Radiology Service of “Arabkir” MC-ICAH, the Arabkir Young Physicians Association /AYPA/ and Armenian Pediatric Association as part of the Open Medical Institute’s satellite symposium program.

Participants will receive 10 CPD credits from the Ministry of Health: 2 practical and 8 theoretical.

Inventory at “ArBeS” Health Center 
An “Inventory” has been opened at the “ArBeS” Health Center, functioning similarly to a library, but instead providing equipment and furniture to children undergoing rehabilitation therapy at “ArBeS”. The aim is to support children’s families ensuring they have necessary equipment at home such as special tables and chairs, stands, rollers, mattresses, and folding ramps. This type of equipment is particularly vital for children with musculoskeletal disorders. Recognizing this, parents have joined forces united in the “Source” Foundation under the leadership of Marina Parazyan, to implement various projects aimed at enhancing the quality of children's lives.     This project, supported by UNICEF and the “Izmirlian” charitable foundation, is a successful example of collaboration that parents believe should continue on an interdepartmental level.     The opening ceremony of the “Inventory” was attended by Deputy Minister of Health Artak Jumayan, Armen Chobanyan (head of the Armenian office of the “Izmirlian” Charitable Foundation), Maya Simonyan (Early Childhood Development officer of UNICEF) , Arman Babloyan (director of the “Arabkir” MC-ICAH), Ara Babloyan (scientific head of “Arabkir” MC-ICAH), Manushak Yeritsyan (head of the “ArBeS” Health Center), specialists, parents, and other guests.   Ara Babloyan acknowledged the proactive role of parents, emphasizing that even the most brilliant ideas would be unattainable without strong parental connections. The collaboration between the “Source” Foundation and “Arabkir” MC serves as an example of this, and there is confidence that the project will succeed.
