AHRA Climb Medical Imaging Conference Canceled

It happened to all of us, and we hated it. This month, COVID-19 became a “party pooper” again as it caused anin-person medical imaging conference to be delayed. The Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) shelving its planned show in Savannah, Georgia, next month.


AHRA Climb was supposed to launch from February 15 to 17 at the DeSoto Hotel in the city’s historic district. However, challenges presented by the new variant of the virus changed the plans. hospital staffing shortages, rising patient admissions, limited testing and uncertain travel scenarios have forced the association to make the decision.


AHRA said in a statement that hosting an in-person event in the current climate is not in the best interest of the imaging community. It hopes to announce revised plans soon.


“The decision to change Climb’s in-person format wasn't taken lightly, but we are committed to being responsive to the times, your needs, and above all, your health and well-being, and the same for your staff and patients,” CEO Daniel Kelsey added.


AHRA’s decision comes after multiple other imaging societies also canceled or delayed in-person conferences, after the omicron variant hi communities. Some of the conferences are the ACR-RBMA Practice Leaders Forum, the Society of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging’s Mid-Winter affair, and the European Society of Radiology’s annual meeting.


Some other conferences were still planned, such as RSNA and Arab Health, a conference Express Systems and Parts Network will attend this year in the United Arab Emirates.
