Tuesday, June 29, 2021 - A packed three-day programme awaits onsite and online attendees of the European Congress of Radiology 2021 Summer Edition taking place from July 1-3. The congress will take on the three fascinating topics of interventional, cardiovascular and neuroradiology in an event inspired by ECR’s popular ‘Cube’ concept. The event is organised by Programme Director, Prof. Christian Loewe, and coordinators Dr. Maximilian de Bucourt and Prof. Majda M. Thurnher under the patronage of Prof. Michael Fuchsjäger in his function as ESR Chairman of the Board of Directors. 

The congress will feature a mix of educational sessions and hands-on interactive experiences, interwoven with segments on news and innovations, entertaining interludes, demos and, of course, live discussions with some of the world’s most renowned experts in radiology. The full programme can be viewed here
The meeting, will take place in Vienna at the MuTh, home of the Vienna Boys’ Choir, and the ESR is delighted to host more than 100 onsite attendees, the first ESR event with onsite attendance since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Strict safety measurements and regulations have been put in place for the congress, which marks a step back to normalcy for the ECR.  
As well as onsite attendance, the congress will also be broadcast across the world as it seeks to cater to radiologists worldwide through virtual attendance opportunities whilst also offering the same unique personal experience that only an onsite event can provide.

The ECR 2021 Summer Edition serves as test run for future events organised by the European Society of Radiology such as the upcoming ECR 2022.

Joining us at the congress will also be a range of exhibitors who will offer fascinating insights into their latest products and services at our brand-new Simulator Adventure Park. In addition to a variety of devices such as tubes and catheters, simulators such as the Corindus CorPath GRX Robotic PCI System powered by Siemens will also be on display. Participants will have the opportunity to work with the provided materials and devices under the guidance of tutors.

In addition to a packed scientific programme, the congress will also premiere Vienna Waits For You a very special project hosted by ESR Chairman of the Board of Directors, Prof. Michael Fuchsjäger. Through six fascinating episodes, he will journey through some of the city's most famous sights to explore and experience the wonders of the Vienna State Opera, the Augarten, the Austrian National Library, the Third Man Museum, the Leopold Museum and the Spanish Riding School. 
Viewers will discover that Austria’s capital is not only the home of European radiology, but also a treasure chest of culture, history, and art. Vienna Waits For You will be available to watch on ESR Connect from July 1.
