ECR 2018 Programme Team

Many dedicated and capable people have devoted their time and efforts to put together the ECR 2018 scientific and educational programme. Take a look at the Programme Planning Committee and the various subcommittee chairs in our ECR 2018 Programme team brochure here.

EDiR at ECR 2018

The number of available EDiR examination places has been doubled for ECR 2018! Make sure you still get one of the 30 places left! All accepted EDiR candidates will receive free registration for ECR 2018. Click here for more information.

EuroSafe Imaging activities at ECR 2018

EuroSafe Imaging will have a strong presence at the forthcoming ECR 2018, with three dedicated scientific and six Coffee & Talk sessions, an electronic poster exhibition, the EuroSafe Imaging Lounge with a café and a booth providing plenty of information about radiation protection issues with focus on guidance and practical tools for the implementation of the European Basic Safety Standards Directive.

EIBIR Research Session at ECR 2018

The European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR) joint session at ECR 2018 will feature expert speakers from three EU-funded research projects and provide an insight into how it helps researchers from around the world submit successful funding proposals and manage collaborative projects across borders. View the session programme here.  

Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM)

The DIAM group of experts is already preparing for their sessions at ECR 2018: one about the DIAM project itself and a second one about the first DIAM Stage 6 hospital in the world. Visit the DIAM sessions at ECR 2018 to become familiar with the benefits of this project, to gain insight from the participants' experiences and to learn how to get involved.

ESR e-Learning cooperation with EFRS

In order to increase the usability for radiographers of Education on Demand, the ESR e-learning platform, its content was screened by the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) to identify relevant lectures. Furthermore, new training levels were implemented: Level R I (Radiographers: Bachelors) and Level R II (Radiographers: Postgraduate). Click here to visit the platform.

EDiR examination calendar 2018

The EBR is pleased to announce two new examination dates for the EDiR in 2018! The exams will take place on July 3 and 4 in Barcelona and application will open on February 1. Visit the EBR website for more information.

Education on Demand & ESOR

The next EDiR exam date is getting closer and the ESR is providing new learning content for all candidates and ESR members. In cooperation with ESOR, the latest ESOR for EDiR courses held in November 2017 were recorded and are now available on Education on Demand. Click here to find out more.

Incremental diagnostic value of targeted biopsy using mpMRI-TRUS fusion versus 14-fragments prostatic biopsy

The authors of this article establish a comparison between the incremental diagnostic value of targeted biopsy using real-time multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging and transrectal ultrasound (mpMRI-TRUS) fusion and conventional 14-cores biopsy. Read more here. (Eur Radiol)

Cone beam computed tomography of the musculoskeletal system

This pictorial review illustrates the use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for various musculoskeletal disorders as well as comparing its diagnostic value to other imaging modalities. Click here to access the full article. (Insights Imaging)

Patients with cardiac devices and MRI

The aim of this study was to assess the safety of MRI at a magnetic field strength of 1.5 Tesla in patients who had a pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter–defibrillator that was not considered to be MRI-conditional. Find out more here. (N Engl J Med)

Organic mitral regurgitation: MRI-derived assessment and ECHO-derived integrative approach

This paper presents a comparison between the discriminative power of MRI quantification and the recommended Doppler-echocardiography (ECHO)-derived integrative approach in order to identify asymptomatic patients with organic mitral regurgitation and adverse outcome. Read further here. (Circulation)

MRI and the detection of bone metastasis in patients with prostate cancer

In this article, the authors review the diagnostic performance of contemporary MRI for the detection of bone metastasis in prostate cancer patients. Click here to access the full article. (Eur Urol)
