BSCI/BSCCT 2.0, Keble College, Oxford, 6-8 September 2020
Dear members and delegates,
As I hope you will all appreciate, it has been an extremely difficult past few weeks for the organising committee. It was with very great regret that we chose to postpone the conference last week when it became clear that the event could not go ahead.
Fortunately, Keble College have been very reasonable and have allowed us to transfer the meeting in its entirety to a new date from 6-8 September 2020. Availability was incredibly limited, particularly as Keble is restricted to out of term dates and we were very fortunate to secure a date that was at an appropriate time of year and did not clash with other meetings or school holidays. Our sincere hope is that we will be well past the worst of the coronavirus outbreak by this date. Evidently the main conference is now on Monday/Tuesday and the pre-conference level 1/radiographer and nuclear courses are on the Sunday.
Despite the fact that our losses for rescheduling the meeting are much less than they could have been, we will still be left with a shortfall and the society will have to bear the additional organisational costs of running the meeting again. Further to this we are keen to keep our administration costs to an absolute minimum and we propose that all existing registrations will be transferred to the new dates unless we hear anything to the contrary by Friday April 17, 2020. If any individuals cannot make the new dates and they need to claim a refund, please email the BSCI secretariat on email@example.com prior to the above date.
Registration for new delegates will open in late spring. We do have to point out that based on current registrations, we are almost at venue capacity and there may be very few additional places available.
For those of you that booked a room in college using the BSCI discount code you should already have received a full refund. If any of you have had any issues with this, please contact Keble accommodation directly. Delegates requiring discounted accommodation in college for the new event will be able to book online as before and we will be providing booking discount codes in due course.
We look forward very much to welcoming all of you to Oxford in the Autumn

Our Society welcomes membership from medical and non-medical specialists and generalists with a cardiac imaging interest and encourages membership from trainees as well as senior practitioners.
We are a multi-modality cardiac imaging society. This is reflected in our scientific meetings, which enables us to discuss and compare different imaging techniques.We act as the national special interest group for cardiovascular computed tomography. This function has been brought together as part of the BSCCT within the BSCI.
We are the Specialist Interest Group for cardiovascular imaging for the Royal College of Radiologists and part of the Imaging Council of the British Cardiovascular Society.
The objectives of the society are to:
- Promote the highest standards of practice of cardiovascular imaging in the United Kingdom
- Promote education, training and the dissemination of scientific evidence in all aspects of cardiovascular imaging
- Advise the Royal College of Radiologists and the British Cardiovascular Society on cardiovascular imaging
