Children in Focus has been coordinated by Dr. Lil-Sofie Ording Müller, Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, and Dr. Catherine Owens, Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. The aim of the programme is to take on non-scientific topics that are important for radiologists and medical professionals to consider in their daily practice. It involves a wide variety of speakers from across the spectrum of healthcare industries, both patients and professionals, sharing inspirational stories from their own personal experiences, offering advice, and asking the tough questions about children and the care they receive around the world.

The Paediatric & Children in Focus Highlight Week is free for all ECR 2020 attendees. Access to this Highlight Week or any of our other five upcoming Highlight Weeks can be purchased on ESR Connect.
