The Cube is a dynamic educational space dedicated to the captivating world of interventional radiology (IR), exclusive to the European Congress of Radiology (ECR).

Featuring a huge array of simulators, devices, expert-led sessions and more, the Cube is the best place to get an immersive, hands-on introduction to IR. Activities at the Cube are organised according to four daily themes: peripheral, central, oncological and neurological IR. Sessions and simulations will interest radiology residents, radiologists, radiographers, students, nurses and anyone else wanting to explore IR.

After a hugely successful debut outing, the Cube returns bigger, better and bolder to ECR 2019. Explore this page for details on what the Cube 2.0 has to offer and information on how to ensure your place at 'the Silicon Valley of IR education'.

We'll see you at the Cube 2.0, 27 February - 2 March 2019, DC Tower 1, ECR City.

FAQs

1. When and where is the Cube?

    The Cube 2.0 will take place from 27 February through 2 March, as a feature of ECR 2019.

    It will be located in a new venue for 2019 - the cuboid annex of DC Tower 1, which is just a short walk from the Austria Center Vienna (the ECR's main location) and Kaisermühlen subway station.

2. Who should enter the Cube?

    The Cube provides an interactive introduction to IR. Thus, it is suited to young physicians, students, radiologists, radiographers, nurses and anyone else who wants to learn about this fascinating field.

 

3. Can my company participate in the Cube?

4. Who is behind the Cube?

    The Cube is organised and run by the European Society of Radiology, utilising the support of a number of industry partners and specialists who deliver simulation activities and interactive presentations.

    In an effort to welcome more radiographers to the Cube 2.0, the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) will collaborate in its organisation.
