ECR 2018 Abstract Submission

ECR 2018 Abstract Submission for Scientific Papers, Electronic Posters (EPOS) and Clinical Trials in Radiology will be possible until October 10. Submit your abstract now!

ECR 2018 My Thesis in 3 Minutes

Are you able to squeeze your whole scientific thesis (MD or PhD) into a three minutes presentation? If your answer is “yes”, “probably” or even “maybe”, then look out for the My Thesis in 3 Minutes (MyT3) option during the abstract submission process and be sure to tick the ‘agree’ box!

MyT3 will be launched at ECR 2018 and is dedicated to residents and young radiologists who would like to present their thesis results as first authors in a very entertaining and fast-paced scientific session.

ECR 2018 Invest in the Youth

The future of radiology lies with youth!
Once again, 1,000 young professionals in training (radiology residents, physicists enrolled in a doctoral (PhD) programme, and radiographers in training) will receive free registration for ECR 2018 and up to 4 nights of accommodation in Vienna. Applicants must be ESR members in 2017 and submit an abstract.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity and check out all the information and requirements below.

ECR 2018 Shape your Skills

The ESR is pleased to present its new support programme aimed at radiographers who are in their first 5 years of  practice.

Insights into Imaging – Call for submissions

Insights into Imaging is a gold open access journal dedicated to original articles, reviews, opinions and statements from leading European radiological societies. Take a look at the I3 website and read all its articles here.

Don’t forget that for ESR Members Article Processing Charges for accepted articles in Insights into Imaging and European Radiology Experimental are covered.

‘Tips and Tricks in CT’ webinar on August 29

The ESR and EuroSafe Imaging are pleased to announce a free webinar jointly organised with the IAEA on Tuesday, August 29, 2017, at 15:00 (CEST). This webinar focuses on Tips and Tricks in CT and will comprise the latest information and guidance on the safe use of CT. Details can be found here.

Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM)

DIAM has been developed by the ESR and HIMSS for radiology departments in order to provide vendor-neutral guidance on the digitisation of imaging IT. Many hospitals have already joined the project and receive reports, including recommendations. Check out the feedback from participants here and take the DIAM survey here. Join DIAM (free of charge in Europe) and benefit from the project!

Interval lung cancer

This retrospective study examines the screening CT examinations and results of the 44 National Lung Screening Trial participants with diagnosed interval lung cancer within 1 year after negative CT screen and before the next annual screen. Read further here. (Eur Radiol.)

Cardiovascular electronic devices

How safe is MR imaging for patients with cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs)? This article establishes guidelines on the safe use and provides indications for imaging patients with CIEDs. Read more here. (Insights Imaging)

Reminders for breast cancer screening appointments

This open and randomised controlled trial estimates the effectiveness of sending invitations for breast screening with a timed appointment to women who missed their first appointment within the NHS Breast Screening Programme. Find out the results here. (Lancet)

Evaluation of branch duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms

The authors of this article carried out a long term evaluation of patients with branch duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (BD-IPMNs) in order to establish the risk of malignancy and define a subset of low-risk BD-IPMNs. Read further here. (Am. J. Gastroenterol.)

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography

With this commentary, the authors aim to provide an appraisal of the state of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and to offer a view towards the future. Find out more here. (Am. J. Gastroenterol.)
