Please help us spread the word by sharing this information with international radiologists who you think may be able to benefit from this opportunity.

The ICIS Secretariat invites any individual from any country categorised by the World Bank as 'low income' or 'lower middle income', to apply to be a sponsored delegate at ICIS 2019. The list can be found here
