Dear Colleagues & Friends,
Since 1991 the European Congress of Radiology has been the driving force behind the development of a community of dedicated professionals in the field of medical imaging and image-guided therapy that has grown to become the largest radiological society in the world.
ECR 2019 will be the 25th held in Vienna, the right moment to rethink about what we, as radiologists, radiographers, medical physicists and allied scientists, have achieved over the years following the sea of opportunities created by our many congresses over time.
Come and be part of ‘the bigger picture’ by celebrating the 25th anniversary of ECR in Vienna, learning new things, presenting the results of scientific projects, discussing, liaising, collaborating and creating friendships with colleagues from all over the world!
From a long history of dedication, innovation and attention to patients’ care, we can build up our future and ready ourselves to meet the emerging clinical, technological and social challenges of our discipline.

The poster design for ECR 2019 is inspired by two concepts – the city of Genoa, hometown of the ESR President, and the fact that ECR 2019 will be the 25th European Congress of Radiology to take place in Vienna. Genoa is on the Mediterranean Sea, and has one of the largest aquariums in Europe. It is both an entertaining and a scientific institution that attracts many visitors, even from abroad.
Choosing the colour of the Mediterranean as the background, with a number of fish swimming in it, was an easy choice. But, if you look more in detail, you can see that each fish has been designed with the colours of one of the posters of the past ECRs and that they, together, delineate the number 25.
Furthermore, the number 25 at the top of the poster and the logo surrounding it are written with the same font used for the ECR posters of the first years. These details try to recall the past and to underline that the new congress is carrying on along the same lines as earlier ones. Again, the concept of continuity of ESR's activities over time (and over presidencies).
The ECR 2019 Programme Team Brochure includes all the Programme Planning Committee Members, the Scientific Subcommittee Chairpersons and the staff members of the ECR Scientific Programme Department.
The ECR is an officially certified green meeting, which makes it the largest congress in Europe to receive the Austrian environmental certification. To achieve the certification, the congress had to ensure environmental sustainability in several different areas. In order to achieve the lowest possible CO² emissions from transport, congress participants are strongly encouraged to use environmentally friendly means of transport on their trip to Vienna (please consult the Website of the Austrian train service) and to the Congress Center. Public transportation tickets for Vienna will be available to purchase through the congress website.
By cooperating with two catering companies that also boast eco-friendly credentials, the congress could offer locally-sourced products and avoid the use of disposable plates and plastic bottles.
The congress programme can be accessed online for free via the interactive Programme Planner. For those who prefer the paper version, a printing company was contracted based on its ability to guarantee the highest printing quality while using recyclable paper from environmentally friendly and sustainably managed forests.
Through a major expansion of the ECR Online programme, ECR 2018 attracted 6,415 online viewers, a development that is very much in the spirit of green meetings. This particular project will be extended further over the coming years.
