Some of the key topics of discussion will be hybrid imaging, artificial intelligence in radiology, COVID-19 lessons and questions, head and neck cancer imaging, non-pulmonary aspects of COVID-19, leadership and management in radiography, trauma imaging, COVID-19 experience from Italy, Spain and England, MRI of the future, cardiac imaging, the radiographer’s perspective of COVID-19, imaging of larger patients, radiology and mass casualty incidents, lung cancer screening, breast MRI, radiology training and much much more.
In addition, ESR Past President Professor Lorenzo Derchi and ESR Chairman of the Board of Directors Boris Brkljačić will be hosting daily table talks to explore current issues in radiology and to ensure the meeting is as interactive as possible.
Professor Boris Brkljačić will be opening the Congress and will provide insights into the scientific programme and how the organisers and participants of the Congress have adapted the proceedings into an online format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The online Opening Ceremony will feature music by Croatian singer and songwriter Lana Janjanin and her band, as well as the Wiener Symphoniker orchestra.
ECR 2020 Online will also feature a virtual exhibition open to all visitors. This will be an interactive exhibition, featuring hundreds of companies and 216 virtual booths with product demonstrations and live communication with company representatives.
