Latest Information

Following the cancellation of the 2020 event due to COVID-19, the RA-UK Council have looked at ways in which to deliver the same high quality educational events but in a safe and controlled environment. As such, we recently delivered our first online virtual webinar, which was hugely successful​.

Planning for the 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting has been ongoing, and we are delighted that with the support of our sponsors and faculty, we are now able to announce that the 2021 ASM will take place virtually. 

The RA-UK Committee and select speakers will  physically attend our studio filming location in Sheffield, from here they will present the ASM in a TV style production and it will be streamed to an online platform. 

The broadcast will include:

  • Live Ultrasound Scanning

  • Live Panel Discussions

  • International Speakers Streamed Live and Joining in Discussions

  • Pro/Con Debate

  • Fantastic Talks from Expert Faculty

  • Audience Q&A's

We are incredibly excited about holding our first virtual ASM and we hope that you join us as it is promising to be a fantastic event.
