11/15/2022, Xalapa, Ver.- Students of the Educational Program (PE) Higher University Technician (TSU) in Radiology, attached to the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidad Veracruzana (UV), organized the 4th Conference on Radiology, on the days November 15 and 16, in memory of Jorge Viveros Parker, former academic of that educational entity and exponent of radiology at a local, national and international level.

During the event held within the framework of World Radiology Day, which is celebrated every November 8 for the discovery –in 1895– of X-rays, Mónica Sandoval García, director of the Faculty of Medicine, stressed that the purpose of The conference is to attract the attention of the population and create awareness of the benefits of medical imaging and its evolution through constant technological innovation.

In the Hybrid Classroom Number 3, before students and academics, he explained that radiology is the medical specialty in charge of generating images of the interior of the body through different physical agents: X-rays, ultrasounds, magnetic fields, among others.

Subsequently, these images are used for diagnosis and, to a lesser extent, for the prognosis and treatment of diseases, since with access to quality imaging services and well-trained professionals, lives can be saved.

Therefore, he recognized the initiative of the students in organizing these conferences in memory of Dr. Viveros Parker, who was a professor at the Faculty and a pioneer in Xalapa of radiological practice by bringing state-of-the-art technology that, to date, continues to be a benchmark .

Seven years after his departure from the earthly plane, Sandoval García recalled the treatment and human quality of Jorge Viveros towards his patients, family members and doctors who requested his services, as well as his professional and institutional performance as a radiologist at the Regional Hospital of Xalapa ” Luis F. Nachón”.
