Abstract Submission

Be part of the Next Generation of Radiology

Thank you for your interest in submitting your abstract to ECR 2024. Your contribution to the congress is valuable and helps enrich the field of radiology.

The abstract submission is now closed.

Before embarking on your journey to submit your abstract, we recommend reading the below sections to better understand the process and requirements for successful submission.

Please refer to the comprehensive overview below, which will seamlessly guide you through all relevant processes.

Find all relevant information at one glance below.

Abstract submission is now closed.

Submission system
All abstracts must be submitted online through www.myESR.org/abstractsubmission

Our submission system, where a guiding layout for the required information in your abstract, is provided.

The abstract can be submitted by any co-author; however, only the presenter will receive all notifications and is responsible for the oral presentation and/or the poster upload. Co-authors will not receive any notifications and will not be able to upload or present the abstract unless a presenter change occurs.

Duplicate submissions
You cannot submit the same abstract to more than one presentation format. The submission of duplicate abstracts will, unfortunately, lead to the immediate rejection of the abstract(s) involved.

Edit your Submission
If you have already submitted your abstract and wish to make changes, please contact the abstract submission team per via email ([email protected]). We will re-open the abstract for you to edit. When you carry out your edits, please make sure to re-submit.

Case Reports
Unfortunately, case reports of 3 or fewer cases cannot be accepted. We recommend submitting case reports to the ESR’s teaching case platform EURORAD, here.

Presenter registration

Valid congress registration is mandatory to present your abstract or to have your poster shown during the congress and/or permanently published after the congress.

reduced registration fee of EUR 380,- is available for all presenting authors of accepted oral and poster abstracts who are ESR members in good standing by August 31, 2023. The presenting authors of accepted abstracts without ESR 2023 membership can still register for ECR 2024 for the Opening Fee.

Important information: This offer will only be available if registration is finalised by December 19, 2023, and only applies to the presenting author (not first or any other authors). If the presenting author cannot register for the congress, they have the option to make an attending co-author or colleague the presenting author so that this person can present their work at the congress.

Each abstract receives one reduced registration ticket for the presenting author. Once the reduced registration payment is completed, the ticket is not transferrable. If the presenter change occurs before the reduced registration payment is completed, the reduced registration fee benefit is transferred to the new presenting author. Please note that the ESR will not refund any previously paid registration fees, including in cases of special offers, subsequent ticket changes or membership-related changes.

Please make sure to use the account with the same Personal ID for registration that was used to submit the abstract(s).

Presentation Formats

Once you start your submission, you can choose your preferred presentation format. However, please keep in mind that the final presentation format is exclusively decided by the Programme Planning Committee. Here is an overview of what to expect within each format:

Oral Presentation

Oral presentation abstracts will be considered for two different session types:

  • Research Presentation Sessions (RPS), allowing a short classic oral presentation followed by a short discussion.
  • Clinical Trials in Radiology (CTiR) sessions, dedicated to ongoing or recently finished multicentre trials that are likely to impact clinical practice in the future.
    The following studies are eligible:
  • Multicentre studies of any design (can be submitted with their study design, baseline data, or results).
  • Single-centre studies (only if randomised and results are available).

Poster Presentation

EPOSTM is the ESR’s Electronic Presentation Online System for scientific and educational posters.
Posters submitted for ECR will be part of the scientific exhibition at the congress and can also be published permanently on the EPOSTM online viewing platform. Find more information here.

The poster presentation format is divided into three categories:

  • EPOS for Radiologists (standard scientific1 studies, educational2 descriptions).
  • EPOS for Radiographers (radiological technologists).
  • EuroSafe3 Imaging (poster abstracts submitted with the keyword “Radioprotection” will be reviewed for the EuroSafe poster category).
  • EPOS on the Go: a new feature that re-introduces poster presentations delivered live in a casual setting.

Student Presentation

Student Sessions will take place as part of the student programme of the congress. Find out more here.


EPOS Scientific: Scientific posters can be submitted for standard scientific studies.
EPOS Educational: Educational posters can be submitted for educational descriptions, i.e. of a particular condition or procedure or a series of cases.
EPOS EuroSafe: EuroSafe Imaging posters can be submitted for all radiation protection-related topics.

Application for our support programmes is now closed: 

“Invest in the Youth” for radiologists in training and “Shape your Skills” for radiographers (radiological technologists). 

For more information, please head to www.myESR.org/supportprogrammes

Student Abstract submission is now closed.

Application procedure
Undergraduate students under the age of 30 are invited to submit their work for the ECR 2024 Student Sessions. During the submission, please select your preferred presentation format which includes already the dedicated student topic.

Students and radiographers in training are encouraged to submit abstracts on the topics listed below:

  • My educational or social project at my university
  • My scientific paper in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • My scientific paper in the field of dose optimisation in imaging
  • My first scientific paper in imaging (general radiology)

The best abstract submitters will be invited to ECR to present their work to an international audience. Selected students will receive free congress registration for ECR 2024, 4 nights of accommodation in a preselected hotel and a certificate after the congress.

Please send your required proof of profession and passport to: [email protected]

ECR 2024 will see the introduction of our latest addition, “EPOS on the Go”. This dynamic feature offers the exclusive opportunity for our top poster abstracts to be delivered in a concise live presentation. The new concept offers a casual setting for you to present to an audience on an open platform within the EPOS Lounge. Share your research live, get feedback, and network with professionals in your field through “EPOS on the Go”!

This feature will only be available after the completion of the abstract rating process in December and is exclusive to the top-rated poster abstracts only, who will be invited to sign-up via the ESR account.

More information on how to sign up for “EPOS on the Go” will be shared in due time.
