Bracco and ESR Forge a Powerful Partnership to Make the Invisible Visible at ECR 2023

Bracco and the European Society of Radiology are glad to announce today the renovation of their partnership

Milan, and Vienna, Feb. 23, 2023 – Bracco, a world-leading diagnostic imaging provider and the European Society of Radiology (ESR), are proud to announce their longstanding partnership and the theme chosen by Bracco at ECR 2023: Unlocking the Invisible.

This partnership underscores the important role of doctors and physicians in making the invisible visible. Thanks to the powerful tools and imaging agents developed by Bracco, it is possible to provide more accurate and precise diagnoses for patients.

“Our partnership with the European Society of Radiology (ESR) is incredibly valuable,” states Fulvio Renoldi Bracco, Vice President and CEO of Bracco Imaging. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to attend ECR 2023 to demonstrate our dedication to providing physicians with the tools necessary to make precise diagnoses for the benefit of patients. We are also excited to present new initiatives to support young radiologists in their training and growth. We intend to be close to our community not only through cutting-edge products, but also by offering support for ongoing scientific education.”

“Bracco has been an important long-term partner of the ESR, particularly in the fields of education, which plays such an important role in how we progress as a profession,” says Adrian Brady, ESR President. “It’s fantastic to see this cooperation develop further at ECR 2023, where we are excited to see Bracco unlock the invisible.”

In partnership with the ESOR association, Bracco will be relaunching the Under 40 program, which will provide young professionals with the opportunity to connect, learn, and grow. This initiative will help to foster the next generation of radiologists and enable them to make the invisible visible.

Sustainability and AI are two other themes that will be featured at the Bracco booth. We believe that green radiology should be a priority in the medical community, and we renew our commitment to developing innovative solutions that are both effective and environmentally friendly.

We want to share projects and efforts in the field of AI, new approaches and tools that are reshaping the future of health care.

The goal is to provide physicians with the innovative tools they need.

Lastly, we are excited to host you at our booth at ECR where we will feature a wide range of products and solutions for all key diagnostic imaging modalities and showcase our latest imaging systems and applications as well as our new contrast agents and services. Attendees will be able to get hands-on experience with some of the products and learn more about how they can improve their imaging services. Presentations by our experts will illustrate the latest imaging technologies, innovations, and applications. Our representatives will be available to answer questions and provide detailed advice and information. 

Bracco’s booth at ECR 2023 will be a visually stimulating experience, showcasing our innovative approach to medical imaging. Visitors to the booth can explore how Bracco is Unlocking the invisible with advanced imaging solutions; our interactive displays highlighting cutting-edge imaging technologies will include 3D images and videos that showcase the power of AI and sustainability.

A live Q&A will also be available in addition to scientific satellite symposia, featuring world-leading experts in the field of radiology and from Bracco. These symposia will provide an invaluable opportunity to learn about the latest advances in imaging technology and discuss the future of the medical field. They will be focusing on a new age of MR contrast imaging, on ultrasound (CEUS) as an asset to improve the workflow of patients with focal liver lesions, and finally on Photon-counting CT: a new challenge for contrast administration.

We look forward to seeing you at ECR 2023!
