About the Southern Pediatric Radiology Society
The Southern Pediatric Radiology Society was created in 1968 by a small group of pediatric radiologists residing in the southern and southeastern United States. Annual meetings were initially held in Atlanta at Emory University and subsequently were rotated around other cities in the south. These first meetings of the SPRS were small and informal but provided a unique forum for pediatric radiologists to present new information and learn with their colleagues. Over the years, the SPRS has grown to include members from the states of Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas. Today the society has members from all regions of the United States and even internationally. However, even though the society has grown, it still remains a friendly gathering of colleagues sharing the same interests. The annual SPRS meeting has been traditionally held in late September-October, taking advantage of the sunny and warm southern climate. The three-day meeting is attended by pediatric radiologists and radiologists with interest in pediatric imaging. The scientific program takes place in the morning and early afternoon. Attendees are given ample free time and the opportunity to participate in social activities organized by the society.
