2022 Symposium

We hope you enjoyed ImNO 2022. A heartfelt thank you for joining the symposium and making it a success! 

Congratulations to all the Award Winners.  We look forward to seeing you at ImNO2023!

The Imaging Network Ontario (ImNO) hosts an annual symposium that promotes collaborations, broadcasts career opportunities, informs trainees on diverse imaging applications and fosters a greater understanding of the commercialization process.

Our 20th symposium was virtual and included colleagues from outside Ontario. It featured world-renowned keynote speakers and sessions that brought together trainees with imaging scientists, clinicians and patient groups, and industry representatives. The symposium featured 2 technical keynote presentations, 2 special focused sessions on Introduction to Patient Partnerships and on Medical Imaging in Global Health: Challenges and Opportunities for Collaboration.  We had 400 participants and showcased 143 trainee presentations in either 10-minutes oral presentations or 3-minute pitch presentations.  Our first educational outreach challenge was a great success.
