The Dawn of a New Era – Foreword by
Prof. Carlo Catalano

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure and considerable anticipation that I introduce to you the scientific and educational programme for the European Congress of Radiology 2024.

This congress will be held at a time where we as radiologists find ourselves at the dawn of a new era—the era of ‘Next Generation Radiology’. This congress slogan encapsulates our shared vision of not just staying ahead, but defining the future of our field.

In the ever-evolving landscape of medical imaging, radiologists continue to play a pivotal role in transforming healthcare. Our journey at ECR 2024 will extend beyond the boundaries of the present, where innovation and discovery converge to redefine patient care. We are no longer just interpreters of images; we are pioneers of precision medicine, harnessing the power of data, technology, and collaboration to chart a new course in medical care. Now more than ever, we stand at the nexus of information and innovation, serving as the bridge between cutting-edge technology and improved clinical outcomes – ECR 2024 will underline, embrace, and celebrate this fact.

Our theme for this year, ‘Next Generation Radiology,’ reflects not only our commitment to embracing the future, but also our recognition of the transformative potential it holds. It signifies our commitment to exploring the uncharted territories of medical imaging, where artificial intelligence augments human expertise, where radiomics unlocks the hidden patterns within images, and where telemedicine connects us to patients across borders. It’s about embracing the future while preserving the essence of compassionate patient care that has always defined our profession.

In this congress, we will delve deep into the frontiers of radiology, where quantum computing transforms image processing, where 3D printing revolutionizes personalized treatment, and where advanced molecular imaging unravels the mysteries of disease. So, what can you expect at ECR 2024?

Embodying our congress theme, this year’s In Focus programme will be dedicated to cutting-edge technology and practices in healthcare. Innovation in Focus will have its own series of stand-out sessions and an area at the congress focussed on all things future.

As we continue to explore the evolving landscape of radiology, we remain committed to preserving the most beloved session formats from previous congresses. At ECR 2024, you’ll find a rich variety of sessions, from State-of-the-Art Symposia to Image Interpretation Quizzes, from Refresher Courses to New Horizons sessions.

Additionally, we will welcome international perspectives from our three Meets countries this year, Argentina, Italy and Singapore, sharing their unique insights and practices. The AI Theatre & Exhibition, dedicated to the world of artificial intelligence, and The Cube, dedicated to the world of Interventional Radiology, will also make a come-back, along with three outstanding Plenary Lectures from highly accomplished speakers.

‘Next Generation Radiology’ demands collaborative thinking and diverse perspectives. Thus, we will continue to feature Open Forum sessions, encouraging dynamic discussions and sharing of ideas among attendees. These sessions will spotlight the role of radiology trainees, radiographers, and the numerous initiatives of the European Society of Radiology. Furthermore, with a continued commitment to interactivity, ECR 2024 will see a series of hands-on workshops on topics ranging from Cardiac CT & MRI, imaging stroke patients, MRI of the prostate and MSK Ultrasound.

Another traditional and highly popular feature of our congress will celebrate its tenth congress next year. The Clinical Trials in Radiology session format will mark a decade at ECR with a special commemorative session.

I must also mention our Opening Ceremony at next year’s congress. Here, we have something very special for you planned – an evening featuring technical innovations that have never been seen at ECR before. I do not wish to give anything away, so all I will say is that you will be truly shocked by what we have in store for you.

Of course, the ECR is not just a meeting for radiologists; it’s a gathering of multidisciplinary professionals. We extend our warm invitation to colleagues from allied sciences and other medical specialties who will join us in this journey of discovery and collaboration.

We understand that accessibility is paramount, and our aim is to make ‘Next Generation Radiology’ accessible to all, regardless of geographical boundaries. In the spirit of adaptability that the ECR has demonstrated over the past few years, we remain committed to delivering a high-quality experience, both onsite and online.

In closing, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have contributed and continue to contribute tirelessly to bringing ECR 2024 to fruition. The collective effort of countless individuals, often working behind the scenes, has shaped this unique and memorable congress. Thank you for your dedication and passion.

I eagerly look forward to welcoming you to Vienna, where together, we will explore the limitless possibilities of ‘Next Generation Radiology’.

Warm regards,

Prof. Carlo Catalano
ECR 2024 President

Foreword by
EFRS President
Dr. Andrew England

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is my honour as the President of the EFRS to invite you to attend the ECR 2024 Congress in Vienna (February 28 to March 3, 2024). The European Congress of Radiology (ECR) is the official congress of the EFRS. Over the past months, the Radiographers’ Scientific Subcommittee, under the leadership of Dr Jonathan Portelli (Malta), has been working hard to prepare a diverse and rich programme for all radiographers. This will include over 30 dedicated radiographer sessions containing over 100 presentations. Abstract submission remains open, and we encourage all radiographers to consider disseminating their research at ECR 2024.

Like previous congresses there will be a dedicated Radiographers’ Lounge, EFRS Research Hub and Society Booths.

As the European voice of radiographers, our aim is to make the ECR 2024 congress the best yet! We look forward to welcoming you to Vienna and continuing the journey to improve professional practice and outcomes for our patients.

With best wishes,

Dr. Andrew England
EFRS President & ECR2024 Programme Planning Committee Member

ECR 2024 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 33 European CME credits (ECMEC®s).

Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Opening Ceremony – S.H.O.C.K.

February 28, 17:45
Room A, Level 2

Join us for this exceptional highlight of ECR 2024 as Congress President Carlo Catalano invites attendees to experience the unlimited potential of Next Generation Radiology. In an ECR first, he will share the stage with a co-host, Ameca, the world’s most advanced robotic humanoid. Representing the forefront of human-robotics technology, Ameca will share its unique view on the evolution of medical imaging from the perspective of an artificially intelligent being.

With many more extraordinary surprises awaiting attendees, the ECR 2024 Opening Ceremony S.H.O.C.K. will truly live up to its name.
