ECR abstract submission reached an all-time high this
year! A record 7,198 abstracts were submitted and a stunning
increase of almost 20% in submitted papers puts the ECR above the
previously unreached 3,000 papers mark.
Interventional Radiology at the
The programme there is intended to introduce young
radiologists to the fascinating subspecialty of interventional
radiology, and to provide enhanced knowledge to radiologists who
need it in their everyday professional life. Lectures and hands-on
workshops focus on interaction with the participants, simulating
clinical routine and concentrating on practice-oriented contents.
For the new project, rooms in a nearby church have been rented, a
contemporary architectural gem in a cuboid form, made of dark
chromium steel; hence the term 'the Cube'.
