Stress &amp; Strain</em>, focusing on sports imaging and the wider field of musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology.</strong></p> <p>Sports imaging, an emerging sub-field of musculoskeletal radiology that plays a crucial role in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of sports injuries, is the exciting theme of this year’s IDoR. As in previous years, the ESR has once again chosen to highlight the IDoR theme with a book, made available as a <a href="https://www.internationaldayofradiology.com/books/" target="_blank">free PDF download at the official IDoR website</a>, this time produced in cooperation with the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR).</p> <p>The latest in the ESR’s popular series of annual IDoR books covers a huge range of topics across its 48 chapters, including a 10-chapter sequence that delves deep into the imaging of sports overuse and injury in various body regions. However, its editors have also taken the opportunity to offer up thorough explorations of many other aspects of MSK radiology, including imaging with different modalities, bone and soft tissue tumours, rheumatic and metabolic diseases, and diseases and tumours of the peripheral nerves.</p> <p>“We are taking sports imaging as a starting point, but this book really provides a comprehensive guide, examining the full spectrum of MSK imaging.

The ‘Best of ECR’ saw ten speakers presenting their outstanding ECR lectures at CBR 2019, which took place from October 10-12. </strong></p> <p>The programme was made up of a total of six scientific sessions, integrated seamlessly into the main CBR programme. These sessions featured state-of-the-art talks on AI, Chest, MSK, GI/GU and Breast imaging, as well as a range of other topics. The line-up of speakers, which included a number ESR Executive Council members, are all experienced professionals and ECR lecturers with a wealth of radiological knowledge between them, leading to a diverse and informative programme.</p> <p>ESR Chairman of the Board of Directors, Prof. Lorenzo Derchi, who was one of the <em>Best of ECR</em> speakers, enjoyed taking part in the programme and expressed his gratitude to the Brazilian College of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (CBR) for hosting what he hopes will be the first of many <em>Best of ECR</em> programmes to come. Seeing the programme as a positive way to promote ECR amongst colleagues from around the world, he expressed a hope that more Brazilians will now consider attending next year’s congress, either onsite or virtually.</p> <p>The decision to debut the <em>Best of ECR</em> tour in Brazil has further strengthened the growing collaboration efforts between the ESR and the CBR. Last year, the two societies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreeing to develop long-term cooperation strategies to increase the sharing of radiological knowledge and practices between Europe and Brazil.</p> <p>It is the aim of the <em>Best of ECR</em> initiative to increase the ESRs global presence and cooperation with national societies. Each year, the society will send some of the finest speakers from the European Congress of Radiology to a selected national congress to share their experience with those who were unable to attend ECR in person.</p> <p>Next year will see the initiative continue its tour around with the world with a stop in North America. Stay tuned for further news on the next <em>Best of ECR</em> programme, which will take place at the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) Annual Scientific Meeting in Montreal on April 16-19, 2020.</p> <figure role="group" class="align-center"><img alt="The ESR hopes that the ‘Best of ECR’ tour, like explorers, finds adventure, spreads scientific discoveries, increases academic cooperation and creates many happy memories on its travels around the world." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="5dd70492-652e-4837-9ae7-53616828010a" height="814" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/obrigado.png" width="576" /><figcaption><em>The ESR hopes that the ‘Best of ECR’ tour, like explorers, finds adventure, spreads scientific discoveries, increases academic cooperation and creates many happy memories on its travels around the world.</em></figcaption></figure> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image force-fullsize"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=oiMSj_3M 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1" alt="MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.myesr.org/article/2590" data-a2a-title="Well-received Best of ECR programme debuts at the CBR 2019 "><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></span> Fri, 25 Oct 2019 09:37:38 +0000 myESR 2590 at https://www.myesr.org Record number of abstracts submitted for ECR 2020 https://www.myesr.org/article/2586 <span property="schema:name">Record number of abstracts submitted for ECR 2020</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/67" lang="" about="/user/67" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">moderator_David</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2019-10-18T08:23:07+00:00">Fri, 10/18/2019 - 10:23</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><span><span><span><span><strong><span>Friday, October 18, 2019 (ESR, Vienna) – Abstract submission for the next </span></strong><a href="https://www.myesr.org/congress"><strong><span>European Congress of Radiology</span></strong></a><strong><span> closed on October 15, with a record of 9,085 submitted abstracts. This is the first time in the history of the congress that over 9,000 abstracts have been received, beating last year’s record of 8,788 abstracts.</span></strong></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>This year, abstracts were submitted by a hugely diverse, international array of submitters from 104 different countries.

Based on the themes of the congress’s </strong><a href="https://www.myesr.org/in-focus"><strong>Children in Focus programme</strong></a><strong>, the Sunday session will include three talks by accomplished teenage and young adult speakers. </strong></p> <p>With an increasingly diverse group of professionals attending ECR each year, there has been an effort to increase the broader, non-scientific content offered at the congress. With this in mind, the Grand Finale at ECR 2020 will aim to appeal to everyone in a colourful fusion of inspirational talks, musical performances and visual spectacles. The highlights of the session will come from three extraordinary young speakers sharing their thought-provoking personal stories:</p> <p><strong>Memory Banda (Malawi)</strong><br /> A 23-year-old international girl’s rights activist who, as a teenager, defied her villages traditions of forced child marriage and successfully campaigned to raise the age of marriage from 15 to 18 in Malawi. </p> <p><strong>Tanishq Abraham (USA)</strong><br /> A 16-year-old child genius who started attending college classes at the age of seven, spoke at a NASA conference at the age of nine and is now working towards a PhD in biomedical engineering.</p> <p><strong>Arav Hak (India)</strong><br /> A 15-year-old who raised over 50,000 euros going door-to-door in his city and taking on a number of charity challenges to raise money for terminally ill children in his city. </p> <p>Having spoken at TED talks and other international conferences in the past, all three special guest lecturers are experienced speakers, and are sure to be a unique highlight of the congress, unlike anything seen at ECR before. Their personal stories will be interweaved with a flow of live musical and visual performances with plenty of surprises along the way.</p> <p>As with the rest of the Children in Focus programme, the Grand Finale will be open to both congress attendees and the public with content that is relevant and interesting to all age groups and professions. The ESR encourages the public to attend this special session, which will be completely free of charge.  </p> <p>The ECR Grand Finale will take place at 12:30-14:00 on Sunday, March 15, 2020 in the Forum (Room A) of the Austria Center Vienna.</p> <p>For those wishing to attend the entire ECR 2020 for a special reduced early fee, click <a href="https://www.myesr.org/registration">here</a>.</p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image force-fullsize"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=oiMSj_3M 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1" alt="MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.myesr.org/article/2583" data-a2a-title="ECR 2020 to feature Sunday Grand Finale with inspiring child speakers"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></span> Wed, 16 Oct 2019 18:04:51 +0000 myESR 2583 at https://www.myesr.org Messi, Federer, Bolt and more feature on new ESR Sports Imaging website, launched for IDOR 2019 https://www.myesr.org/article/2580 <span property="schema:name">Messi, Federer, Bolt and more feature on new ESR Sports Imaging website, launched for IDOR 2019</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">myESR</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2019-10-15T12:46:06+00:00">Tue, 10/15/2019 - 14:46</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <a href="https://sports.internationaldayofradiology.com" id="" target="_blank" title=""><img alt="IDoR sports imaging banner" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="c5b23523-60ee-40bd-91af-4b360e679b4b" height="85%" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/2019banner-V1.png" width="85%" class="align-center" /></a> <p> </p> <p><strong>Vienna, October 16, 2019 (ESR) – The European Society of Radiology has today launched a brand new Sports Imaging microsite which uses examples of top global athletes to show the general public how radiology is used in the diagnosis and management of sports injuries.</strong></p> <p>The website, which can be found at <a href="https://sports.internationaldayofradiology.com" target="_blank">sports.internationaldayofradiology.com</a>, takes a look at a wide variety of typical sports injuries, ranging from twisted ankles to brain trauma, with reference to the real-life experience of 28 athletes from a selection of the world’s most popular sports.</p> <p>Users can choose from a menu of 12 different sports, followed by a selection of two or three personalities within each sport, whose cases are used to examine injuries common to that sport. Each case is illustrated with at least one medical image, to help highlight the subtlety of the signs that radiologists are trained to spot and to drive home the level of expertise required to make accurate and detailed diagnoses.</p> <p>The ESR hopes that through the examples of these sporting icons, the general public can learn more about the role medical imaging teams play in the management of sports injuries and in healthcare in general. The launch is just one in a variety of activities happening to mark the International Day of Radiology, an annual event held with the aim of building greater awareness of the value that radiology contributes to safe patient care and improving understanding of the vital role radiologists and radiographers play in the healthcare continuum.</p> <p>The International Day of Radiology takes place every November 8, the day that Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the existence of x-rays in 1895. The organisers (the ESR, along with its American counterparts the Radiological Society of North America and the American College of Radiology) hope to alert the world to the medical, scientific and artistic possibilities of medical imaging, the essential role of imaging professionals within healthcare teams, and the high educational and professional standards required of all staff working in medical imaging.</p> <p>To keep up to date with the latest announcements about the International Day of Radiology, please visit the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/internationaldayofradiology/" target="_blank">International Day of Radiology Facebook page</a> or the IDoR website <a href="https://www.internationaldayofradiology.com/" target="_blank">internationaldayofradiology.com</a>.</p> <p><strong>Contact:</strong></p> <p><strong>European Society of Radiology</strong><br /> Julia Patuzzi | ESR Media &amp; IDoR Management<br /> David Zizka | PR &amp; Press</p> <p>Am Gestade 1, 1010 Vienna, Austria<br /> Phone: + 43 1 533 40 64-545<br /><a href="mailto:press@myESR.org"><strong>press@myESR.org</strong></a> <strong>| </strong><a href="http://www.myESR.org"><strong>www.myESR.org</strong></a><br /><a href="http://www.internationaldayofradiology.com" target="_blank"><strong>www.internationaldayofradiology.com</strong></a></p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image force-fullsize"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=oiMSj_3M 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1" alt="MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.myesr.org/article/2580" data-a2a-title="Messi, Federer, Bolt and more feature on new ESR Sports Imaging website, launched for IDOR 2019"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></span> Tue, 15 Oct 2019 12:46:06 +0000 myESR 2580 at https://www.myesr.org CHILI 2.0 – Online Hybrid imaging conference returns, hotter than ever! https://www.myesr.org/article/2577 <span property="schema:name">CHILI 2.0 – Online Hybrid imaging conference returns, hotter than ever!</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">myESR</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2019-10-07T10:24:18+00:00">Mon, 10/07/2019 - 12:24</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>After its resounding success last year, the </strong><a href="http://www.eshi-society.org/chili/"><strong>Conference on Hybrid Imaging LIve (CHILI)</strong></a><strong> will return on October 25, 2019. For the second time, this conference will be broadcast live as a unique online-only event. CHILI 2.0 is organised by the </strong><a href="http://www.eshi-society.org/"><strong>European Society of Hybrid, Molecular and Translational Imaging (ESHI<sup>MT</sup></strong></a><a href="http://www.eshi-society.org/"><strong>)</strong></a><strong> and the </strong><a href="http://www.myesr.org"><strong>European Society of Radiology (ESR)</strong></a><strong>. Attendance is completely free of charge and will be accredited with 6 CME credits. Taken together, this meeting will be one of the hottest conferences in radiology and nuclear medicine this year. </strong></p> <p>Leading the way in modern congress delivery, ESHI<sup>MT</sup> and ESR are embracing the global shift to find greener and more sustainable congress formats through their organisation of CHILI 2.0 – a completely virtual conference. While last year’s conference, CHILI 1.0, was broadcast from Barcelona, this year’s CHILI 2.0 will be live-streamed from Vienna in a new state-of-the-art studio.</p> <p>ESHI<sup>MT</sup> and ESR hope to build on the success of CHILI in 2018, which saw a total of 2,380 people tuning in to be a part of the virtual congress. Starting from 10:00-16:00 (CEST), the upcoming digital conference will include four sessions of three lectures each. Lecturers are world-renowned imaging experts from Europe and North America, some of them returning from CHILI 1.0. All sessions will be tailored to varying degrees of expertise and interests and will ascend in level of complexity. At the end of each session, there will be a short round table discussion including all speakers of the respective session.  </p> <p>As in 2018, viewers will be able to ask their questions live to the experts. A professional moderator will lead the conference, and moderate discussions amongst the panellists as well as with the online audience. The programme is complemented by short videos of international hybrid imaging sites and statements of hybrid imaging advocates. To view the full programme, click <a href="http://www.eshi-society.org/chili/">here</a>.</p> <p>Thomas Beyer, President of ESHI<sup>MT</sup>, is looking forward to another hot mix of lectures, Q&amp;A’s and roundtable discussions. ‘Organising CHILI last year was one of the highlights of our society’s activities in 2018. Due to the format’s popularity, we decided to keep the conference as an online-only event, as we feel this is the most accessible, affordable and eco-friendly way to present all the latest updates in hybrid imaging. I hope that numerous hybrid imaging affiliates and enthusiasts will register for this year’s conference, and I look forward to sensing you online.’</p> <p>Watch a video preview of last year’s congress <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=80&amp;v=-7cu7ZXTuag">here</a>.</p> <p>Don’t miss out on the hottest conference in hybrid imaging and <a href="https://chili.netkey.at/">register now</a>.</p> <div> <i class="rectangle"> <a href="https://www.myesr.org/sites/default/files/styles/original_image/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=z_Uu0mnB" title="" class="square magnific-popup-image"> <article class="media media-medium-image view-mode-image-rectangle"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=ikVx-u4_ 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=ikVx-u4_ 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=ikVx-u4_ 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=ikVx-u4_ 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=ikVx-u4_ 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=ikVx-u4_ 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/png"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2019-10/chili25October.png?itok=ikVx-u4_" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </article> </a> </i> </div> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image force-fullsize"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=oiMSj_3M 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=9DrsuzsI 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=sKnv3ZpR 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=mDUCNuR1" alt="MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.myesr.org/article/2577" data-a2a-title="CHILI 2.0 – Online Hybrid imaging conference returns, hotter than ever!"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></span> Mon, 07 Oct 2019 10:24:18 +0000 myESR 2577 at https://www.myesr.org
