ECR 2022 – Two events in 2022

Due to the developing epidemiological situation in Austria, Europe and the rest of the world at this time, the ESR has made the decision to organise the ECR on March 2-6 as an online-only event and to hold a full onsite ECR in July in Vienna. The onsite congress will now take place on July 13-17, enabling us to hold the event under the most favourable conditions to ensure a safe and secure meeting for all participants. 

ECR 2022 on July 13-17, 2022

This will mark the proper return to a congress in Vienna that so many have been anticipating. This event will be fully onsite, streamed online and offer CME credits. Our SMART congress will deliver an ECR experience like no other, with a highly multidisciplinary programme, exciting summer social events, and a buzzing industry exhibition that will absolutely be worth the wait.

Artificial Intelligence @ ECR 2022

Artificial intelligence, currently one of the hottest topics in radiology and on everyone's lips, will be one of the highlights of the ECR again this year!

A plethora of scientific sessions on AI, ranging from machine learning, deep learning and big data, among others, is already waiting for you. Learn more about the AI activities at ECR 2022 below.

The Artificial Intelligence Theatre

After its hugely successful debut in 2019 and highly anticipated appearance in 2020, the AI Theatre will finally open its stage again at ECR 2022.

The AIX is the best place to explore how machine learning, deep learning and big data are reshaping medical imaging and to find out what the future of radiology holds. Come and meet the ever-growing number of companies and innovators at the forefront of the field and take in industry pitches, keynotes and panel discussions at the AI Theatre.

For everyone interested in radiological AI – the AIX is a must visit during the ECR 2022!

The AI Theatre Programme is organised by the ESR’s Imaging Informatics Subcommittee chaired by Dr. Nadya Pyatigorskaya. More details on the AI Theatre programme and the AI exhibitors will be published soon.

Building bridges – have a look at the ECR 2022 programme!

ECR 2022 is focused on multidisciplinarity and building bridges between radiologists and clinicians. The value of imaging and image interpretation lies beyond diagnostics. It impacts treatment decisions and outcomes and plays a vital role in the healthcare continuum. The ECR 2022 programme aims to reflect multidisciplinarity by introducing shorter lectures and longer case-based discussions, and through welcoming a wider variety of clinicians to share their insights.
