Press Coverage: “ECR for years languished in the shadow of the larger RSNA meeting in Chicago, but apparently no more.” (AuntMinnieEurope)

“Heard on the floor at #ECR2017: "Traffic seems higher, and that is the first radiology show I have noticed that for in a few years."

EuroSafe Imaging activities at ECR 2017

EuroSafe Imaging, the ESR’s flagship initiative to strengthen quality and safety in medical imaging, enjoyed a great presence at ECR 2017 to raise awareness and to promote radiation protection to congress attendees. The highlight was clearly the new EuroSafe Imaging Café with information booth, which was a very popular spot for networking and learning about the ESR’s quality and safety initiative.

EuroSafe Imaging still has plenty in store for you from the ECR 2017: browse through the electronic EuroSafe Imaging poster exhibition and watch dedicated sessions from ECR 2017 to find out more about radiation protection, or read our full report on ECR 2017 here.
