Interventional Radiology at the Cube

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, virtual and augmented reality, expert-led sessions and more, the Cube is the best place to get an immersive, hands-on introduction to IR. Sessions and simulations will interest residents, radiologists, radiographers, students, nurses and anyone else wanting to explore IR.

Thank you to all the companies, guest speakers, tutors and participants that combined to make the Cube 2.0 such a success. We look forward to seeing you all at the Cube 3.0 (March 11-14) at ECR 2020.

FAQs

1. When and where is the Cube?

    The Cube is a feature event of the European Congress of Radiology, held anually in Vienna. The Cube 3.0 will take place from 11-14 March 2020.

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 at ECR 2020?

4. Who is behind the Cube?

    The Cube is organised and run by the European Society of Radiology (ESR). It relies upon the support of a number of industry partners and specialists who present simulations and interactive presentations.

    In 2019, the Cube's structure and program was guided by four coordinators: PD Dr. Maximilian de Bucourt, Prof. Christian Loewe, Prof. Jean-Pierre Pruvo, and Prof. Luigi Solbiati. The European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) also collaborated in the 2019 Cube's organisation, in an effort to welcome more radiographers to the Cube.
