Professional Development

Professional Development

The Society began as the “how to” meeting for body CT and later adopted MR. Today, SABI’s purview includes all imaging modalities and related technologies that are being used to enhance and provide improved patient care. Society membership and attendance at its annual meeting allow radiologists and scientists to stay up-to-date on emerging and established imaging protocols and criteria, as well as to get a closer look into where the field of body imaging is headed.

The Society’s fellows are committed to helping early and mid-career members succeed in their body imaging practice and research. SABI’s annual meeting is formatted in ways – including discussions and debates – that allow for more dialogue between its members. The meeting is the place for body imagers to meet in small group settings, permitting unique opportunities for learning and receiving feedback. SABI also makes use of educational webinars and a mentorship program to better engage with its members and help them maximize the value of their membership.


Society membership easily pays for itself several times over. Some of the ways in which SABI members make back their annual dues include:

  • Discounted annual meeting registration fee
  • Annual digital access to the Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography (JCAT) for $250 (active members or fellow members) or $99 (in-training members) (Non-member price for this digital resource is $654/year.)
