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. Visit to experience the next step in angio suite simulation, virtual and augmented reality, and our new multi-function area dedicated to interventional radiology. Explore this page for more details on what 'the Silicon Valley of IR education' has in store for you.

Don't worry If you missed out on a pre-registration place, registration for all Cube sessions will be available on-site.

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

Registration and Attendance

Registration for all sessions taking place at the Cube (morning, event and afternoon) is available on-site. We recommend arriving 10 minutes before the commencement of the session you wish to attend, as places are limited.

Pre-registration places for morning (9:00-12:00) and afternoon (14:00-17:00) sessions, are now fully booked.

As an official event of ECR 2019, only individuals registered for ECR 2019 may participate in the Cube 2.0. Click here to register for ECR 2019.

 

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, 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?

    Opportunities for company participation in the Cube at ECR 2019 are now closed. Click here to contact us for more information on participating 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), under the guidance of four coordinators: PD Dr. Maximilian de Bucourt, Prof. Christian Loewe, Prof. Jean-Pierre Pruvo, and Prof. Luigi Solbiati.

    It utilises 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.
