MSRT Metro Region Information:
On November 19, 2013, the MSRT Metro Region held their fall meeting. It was held at the Affinity Federal Credit Union’s Conference Center in Roseville, MN. We had 15 participants, therefore, our attendance is growing. The speaker was Dr. Lee Kamman from the Pulmonary and Critical Care Associates in St. Paul. His topic was “From Cough to Oncologist And the Importance of Imaging to Get There”. The discussion was based upon information on lung cancer, knowing what it is, risk factors and then what to do about it.
The attendees were radiologic technologists and students. Some of the comments from the evaluations were:
"It was useful learning about lung cancer"; and
"Taking away information I can use in life and possibly in my job."
Our next meeting will be February 6, 2013 from 6:30-8:30. We hope to get the Affinity Federal Credit Union again. The topic will be Pediatrics. See you there!
