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 Overture on March 2-6, 2022 

This event will feature a series of trailer sessions offering a glimpse of some of the biggest highlights to be held at ECR 2022. These trailer sessions will be held alongside an exciting scientific and educational programme, a studio dedicated to interventional education and technology, and a small onsite element where leading figures in radiology and industry partners will give talks. The event will offer CME credits and can be attended online only.  

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. 

An ECR 2022 registration grants full access to both events.

ECR 2022 Poster

The ECR 2022 poster takes the painting ‘Flowers in a Wan-Li Vase, with Shells’ by the Dutch painter Balthasar van der Ast as its central subject. Various aspects of the congress are portrayed within this stunning image.
 
The painting, which depicts a colourful vase of many different kinds of flowers, highlights the congresses remarkable ability to bring people together. It is a reminder that no matter your age, nationality, gender or medical discipline, the European Congress of Radiology is a place of diversity and inclusiveness. In this way, it ties strongly into the ECR 2022’s theme of ‘Building Bridges’.
 
The artwork is full of life and vibrancy, just like the ECR. The decision to use a masterpiece painted in the 1620s reminds us that ECR is a place of tradition and history. However, with the added elements of the strands of DNA wrapping themselves around the stems of the flowers, we are also led to understand that the congress is an event of both science and style, interaction and innovation.

Patients in Focus

Inspired by the ECR 2022 motto 'Building Bridges', next year's congress will feature Patients in Focus, an exclusive programme dedicated to the biggest stakeholder in medical imaging — the patient. Through a mixture of headline sessions, open discussions and brand new session formats, this series will focus on exploring and enhancing the relationship between medical imaging professionals and patients.

Patients in Focus will feature inspirational and insightful talks from patients, radiologists, and radiographers, as well as clinicians and representatives from other medical disciplines. It will highlight the critical role radiology has in the healthcare continuum whilst seeking to pinpoint exactly what patients want from their doctors and how our care for them can be improved. The programme is being coordinated by Erik Briers and Caroline Justich in collaboration with the ESR Patient Advisory Group.
