EPOS abstract submission for ECR 2019 is open from July 2 to October 10, 2018.
Two types are available:
Case reports will not be accepted. We recommend submitting case reports to EURORAD, ESR’s radiological case database.
Please make sure not to submit the same abstract for EPOS™ and for Scientific Papers, as this will be considered a duplicate submissions and lead to immediate rejection of the involved abstracts.
At ECR 2019, accepted and uploaded posters will be displayed in EPOS™ (the ESR's Electronic Presentation Online System). Therefore, it is mandatory to submit digital poster material (text, images, video files, etc) to EPOS™ for each accepted abstract by January 9, 2019 at the latest. All accepted posters are presented electronically in EPOS™ (no paper print outs).
Posters will be included in the ECR 2019 electronic poster exhibition if the presenting author is registered for the congress.
Notifications of acceptance and poster upload guidelines will be available by December 2018.
Before the congress, the Scientific Exhibition Jury will evaluate uploaded posters and assign awards (Magna Cum Laude, Cum Laude, Certificate of Merit) to the best ones. The recipients will be informed via e-mail, certificates can be picked up during the congress. Magna Cum Laude certificates will be handed over personally in a short ceremony during the congress, and presenters will be granted free registration for ECR 2020.
Radiographer Poster Awards
The presenters of the three best radiographer posters selected by the ECR 2019 Scientific Exhibition Jury will be awarded with Magna Cum Laude. The recipients will receive a printed certificate, free registration for ECR 2020, and a free one‐year online subscription to Radiography, the official journal of the EFRS. The awards are selected and issued jointly by the ESR/EFRS.
At the Voice of EPOS™ the authors of the best posters have the possibility to present their work in moderated sessions. Due to its continued success, at ECR 2019 the programme will be expanded and includes 5 stages and over 130 sessions.
Sessions take place on all congress days and are broadcast online via the ECR Online streaming service and recorded for ECR on Demand.
To strengthen the exchange within the communities and serve a multilingual and international audience, there are also several sessions presented and moderated in languages other than English.
Apart from organ-based sessions, The Voice of EPOS™ features topics of popular interest such as Computer Applications, Molecular Imaging, Physics in Radiology and Radiation Protection.
In addition to the sessions for radiologists and allied sciences, ECR 2019 again offers a dedicated programme for radiographers/radiological technologists.
To present in a Voice of EPOS™ session, you need to select the respective affirmation during your poster abstract submission. Places are allocated based on abstract rating score and session topics.
Information on presentation in a session will be sent together with the abstract notifications in December 2018.

Case-Based Diagnosis Training Interlude submission for ECR 2019 will open in summer.
ECR 2019 will see the return of the popular sessions for general radiologists and residents at the end of their training looking for a simple update on subjects outside of their usual field.
The Case-Based Diagnosis Training sessions will offer an interactive way to test your knowledge in a range of subspecialty areas.
We all use the term “cyst” a great many times every day. It comes in handy when we are dealing with something roundish and not solid. Mostly, we want to convey the message to the clinician and patient: “Nothing to worry about, it's just fluid”. But is it always that simple? Biochemical composition varies and so does its development. How does it look on ultrasound, CT and various MR sequences with all its different contents? Which artefacts may obscure or mimic them? What are indirect signs on an X-ray? Which accompanying features are worth observing? What does the location tell us and are there any additional findings that are useful to report? Are they “leave me alone” lesions by definition, or should we sharpen our awareness to separate the needle in the haystack? Do you always scrutinise brain cysts for the mural nodule to exclude pilocytic astrocytoma? Which implications do porencephalic cyst have? Are dentigerous cysts just holes in the bone or do you watch out for scalloped borders to rule out progressive keratocysts? What are the connections between thyroid cancer and cystic lymph nodes? When do you warn your rheumatologist that a Baker cyst might impede venous flow? When do you recommend sticking a needle into renal cysts? When you start to think about it, you might run into the risk of seeing danger everywhere. We want to help you through the jungle of cysts to arm you with appropriate tools to tackle them on a much higher level than ever before.
The interlude of this year’s Case-Based Diagnosis Training will focus on cysts to avoid misdiagnosis, overdiagnosis, unnecessary and costly work-up, as well as causing patient’s concern.
As in previous years, we ask you to submit your most stunning images of typical, tricky or rare cysts, which made you wonder and doubt what you were dealing with. What are reliable signs? What has helped you to avoid falling into the trap of alerting the referring doctor and patient in vain? Are there any typical concomitant features or accompanying conditions which supported your statement? We are looking forward to receiving your best examples of cysts in all body regions, which should help us all to increase our understanding of their background and to strengthen our expertise in recognising them.
Come and join us for the interlude presentation, where some of the most interesting submissions will be shown and explained, and maybe you will win the award for your excellent work-up. Before and afterwards, you can try to solve clinical cases from ten different fields in radiology, where specialists then help to highlight typical characteristics and differential diagnostic entities.
