Menu will take over from Prof. Maximilian F. Reiser, from Munich, who steps down from the position in late 2017.</strong></p> <p>The ESR is “very happy and pleased to appoint such an outstanding and well-respected leader and friend of the ESR to this prestigious position,” said Prof. Paul M. Parizel, Chair of the ESR Board of Directors. Following an application procedure and a thorough review process, Prof. Yves Menu was unanimously appointed by the ESR Executive Council last week and he will assume his position as Editor-in-Chief officially as of 2018. The January issue of <em>European Radiology</em> will contain Menu’s selection of manuscripts. A gradual handover of duties between the current and future Editor-in-Chief will start in autumn 2017.</p> <p>Prof. Yves Menu is an outgoing Professor of Radiology at the Saint Antoine Hospital and University Pierre &amp; Marie Curie, Paris. He will step down from his chairmanship shortly.</p> <p>“It is an honour to follow in the footsteps of such prominent editors. I have had the pleasure of working with Prof. Reiser before, and I am looking forward to taking over from him and to this new and exciting endeavour,” stated Menu.</p> <p>Menu is a long-time member of the ESR and is well known within the radiological community in Europe and beyond. He has served the society in many leading positions, including as Chairman of the ESR Professional Organisation Committee (POC) from 2011 to 2013, and after many years of involvement with the programme team of the ESR’s annual meeting, the European Congress of Radiology, he oversaw ECR 2011 as Congress President. Furthermore, he served as Scientific Director of the European Board of Radiology (EBR) from 2013 to 2015, President of the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) from 2009 to 2011, and ESGAR Congress President in 2015.</p> <p>After the official handover, the January issue of 2018 will contain Menu’s first selection of articles. During his initial term of three years, he will focus on further establishing the journal as Europe’s number one general journal for clinical radiology. His editorship will focus on optimising workflows and editorial procedures, as well as strengthening the Impact Factor, which is currently 3.967 for the year 2016, and enhancing compliance with international publishing and research standards. “Competition in scientific publishing is high, and there are a lot of new publications on the market; we must make sure that we maintain our ESR brand and stay on the forefront of quality and science in order to serve our community,” said Menu.</p> <p><em>European Radiology</em> was founded in 1991 and is owned by the European Society of Radiology (ESR).

Attendance figures for the congress hit an all-time high, with a total participation of 21,142 and a record number of 12,852 professional delegates, which represents a 9% increase compared to ECR 2016. In addition, more than 5,600 people registered for the ECR Online streaming platform, where almost all of the lectures and presentations could be watched live or on demand.</p> <p>Great advances were also visible within the ECR’s accompanying technical exhibition, which is the largest in Europe, with over 26,000m² of exhibition space and more than 300 exhibiting companies. Some of the biggest players in medical imaging chose to launch their new products for the global market at the ECR, which obviously aroused a great deal of interest for the delegates. This in turn met with an enthusiastic response from the industry representatives, who were thrilled by the crowds filling the exhibition halls. The ECR’s increasingly international audience has helped to make it one of the most important showcase events for the industry, and this trend looks likely to continue in the future.</p> <p>The organisers are certain that this enormous accomplishment rests on three pillars.</p> <p>The first of these is the increasing quality of the congress’s scientific programme. Abstract submission for ECR 2017 also reached a record high, with 6,757 abstracts submitted, a 22.8% increase on the previous year’s figure. The new record includes abstracts submitted for both scientific papers for oral presentations, which increased by 18% on last year, and electronic posters for the ECR’s EPOS™ exhibition, which saw 27% more submissions. The boost in submissions for EPOS™ in particular is attributed to the overwhelming success of the <em>Voice of EPOS</em> sessions introduced at ECR 2016, which give poster authors the opportunity to present their work in person at the congress.</p> <p>This new high in submissions lays the foundation for the increasing quality of the scientific sessions presented at the congress, which is in turn reflected in higher attendance rates in the lecture rooms. The same is true for the invited lectures, given by top experts from all over the world who are hand-picked by the Programme Planning Committee to provide coverage of the most innovative treatments and most recent research.</p> <p>“Radiology is currently undergoing a metamorphosis, and there is a growing focus on functional, biological, and genetics-related imaging. Radiology is not only about detecting lesions and offering a differential diagnosis, but also about understanding how the human body works, how lesions arise and behave, and how we can monitor and influence disease processes using radiological techniques and image-guided interventions. The scientific programme for ECR 2017 truly did address these issues,” said ECR 2017 President Prof. Paul M. Parizel from Antwerp, Belgium, now Chair of the ESR Board of Directors.</p> <p>The second of these pillars is the increased focus on the younger generation. This is a matter very close to Prof. Parizel’s heart. “ECR 2017 had a unique twist compared with previous editions, because our meeting was specifically dedicated to youth<em>. </em>As motto for ECR 2017 I chose ‘the flower gardens of radiology’. Radiology is a beautiful, fragrant, sweet-smelling flower garden, and this is the message I wanted to bring to young radiologists and radiographers, throughout Europe and across the globe. I am extremely happy and proud that this new generation in radiology has heeded my call, as could be witnessed throughout the congress by its very special, youthful, joyous and light-hearted atmosphere. ECR 2017 had more energy, more innovation, and an energetic ‘buzz’ to it, unlike many other meetings,” he stated.</p> <p>The third pillar of ECR 2017’s success is certainly to be found in the greatly increased participation of radiographers; 1,995 participants represents an increase of 21% compared to last year. The ECR is now recognised as the official annual scientific meeting in medical imaging for radiographers by both the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) and the ESR. This newly intensified collaboration between these societies has certainly borne fruits, as is documented by a strongly enhanced scientific programme dedicated to radiographers: more educational sessions, a special EFRS workshop on publishing, a basic session on the role of the radiographer, and a pros &amp; cons session on ultrasound. Simultaneous translations for the majority of these sessions were particularly appreciated.</p> <p>“Much more than other disciplines and specialties in medicine, radiology is teamwork. The team consists of certified radiologists, residents and registrars in training, radiographers, nurses, physicists, technical support staff, managers, etc. The working relationships between these various professional groups are much closer than in almost all other hospital departments. And, at the end of the day, the quality of our performance depends on the strength of the entire team,” concluded Prof. Parizel.</p> <p>The next European Congress of Radiology, ECR 2018, will take place February 28 to March 4, 2018, in Vienna, under the aegis of ESR President Prof. Bernd Hamm from Berlin.</p> </div> </div> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-6"> <div class="paragraph paragraph--type--article-links paragraph--view-mode--default"> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="link forward"> <a href="http://ecronline.myesr.org/ecr2017/" target=&quot;_blank&quot; > <i class="pe-7s-link"></i> <span> ECR 2017 Scientific Programme on ECR Online </span> </a> </p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-6"> <div class="paragraph paragraph--type--article-links paragraph--view-mode--default"> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="link forward"> <a href="http://www.myesr.org/ecr-2017#paragraph_teaser_7560" > <i class="pe-7s-angle-right-circle"></i> <span> ECR 2017 Photo Gallery </span> </a> </p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>Contact</strong>:<br /> ESR Press Office<br /> Julia PATUZZI, David ZIZKA<br /> Neutorgasse 9, 1010 Vienna, Austria<br /> Phone: + 43 1 533 40 64-545<br /><a href="mailto:press@myESR.org">press@myESR.org</a> | <a href="http://www.myESR.org">www.myESR.org</a></p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg" alt="EU &amp; International Affairs" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://myesr.org/article/1051" data-a2a-title="European Congress of Radiology: focus on imaging’s future provides for record in attendance and scientific contributions"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a> <a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> Tue, 14 Mar 2017 11:27:46 +0000 moderator_David 1051 at http://myesr.org ESR and Bracco announce new fellowship at ECR 2017 http://myesr.org/article/1035 <span property="schema:name">ESR and Bracco announce new fellowship at ECR 2017</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="2017-03-05T10:26:07+00:00">Sun, 03/05/2017 - 11:26</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>Vienna, March 5, 2017 (ESR) – </strong><em>The <strong>European Society of Radiology (ESR)</strong> announced yesterday at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) the launch of the <strong>Bracco Fellowships,</strong> a new, unique initiative to promote excellence among European radiologists, in partnership with <strong>Bracco Imaging S.p.A.</strong></em></p> <p>This educational programme, devoted to the professional development of young radiologists, has been created to mark the 90th anniversary of Bracco and will be administered through the educational arm of the ESR, the European School of Radiology (ESOR), which, incidentally, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017.</p> <p>“I am particularly proud to partner with the ESR for this important educational programme,” said Fulvio Renoldi Bracco, Head of the Business Unit Imaging at Bracco Imaging. “For decades, we have been supporting the development of the radiological community with continuous efforts in education.

An extended plan of action is already in place, in close cooperation with the </strong><a href="http://eshi-society.org/"><strong>European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging</strong></a><strong> (</strong><strong>ESHI).</strong></p> <p>At the upcoming ECR 2017, a total of 14 sessions will update congress delegates about hybrid imaging and its clinical application, including lectures on scientific, educational and professional issues alike (more information can be found in the interactive programme planner within the <strong>ECR online</strong> portal <a href="http://ecronline.myesr.org/ecr2017/index.php?p=elasearch&amp;t=browsesessions&amp;session-topic%5B%5D=512b8398-e066-4b5d-8b59-585a9c857936&amp;scrollX=0&amp;scrollY=0">here</a>).</p> <p>In order to continue the promotion of hybrid imaging during 2017, a number of activities has been planned together with the ESHI, focusing mainly on education. In September 2016, the first <strong>ESOR Asklepios Course on Hybrid Imaging in Oncology</strong> took place in Vienna, Austria, organised by the <strong>European School of Radiology (ESOR)</strong> together with the <strong>ESHI</strong>. Fully booked with 100 participants from 32 countries, the course was a huge success. Due to the strong demand, ESOR and ESHI, both ESR initiatives, will hold another ESOR-ESHI <a href="http://www.esor.org/cms/website.php?id=/en/programmes/asklepios_courses/asklepios_courses/hybrid_imaging.htm"><strong>ASKLEPIOS Course: Introduction to Hybrid Imaging in Oncology</strong></a> from August 31 to September 1, 2017, in Vienna. Additionally, in the latter part of 2017, the ESHI educational programme will be extended to include an advanced course on hybrid imaging.</p> <p>“I am pleased that we are drawing more attention to hybrid imaging; it can contribute immensely to other fields, and we can therefore ensure added benefits for our patients, for example in oncology. Promotion of, and education in hybrid imaging for radiologists is thus of utmost importance,” emphasised Prof. Dr. Katrine Riklund from Umeå, Sweden, Chair of the ESR Board of Directors and ESHI President.</p> <p>Later this year, an <a href="http://www.esor.org/cms/website.php?id=/en/programmes/esor_courses_for_edir/hybrid_imaging.htm"><strong>ESOR course for EDiR on hybrid imaging</strong></a> will be held in the ESR Learning Centre in Vienna. This foundation course is designed to prepare prospective candidates for the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR). Board-certified radiologists wanting to update their knowledge are also welcome.</p> <p>ESHI has developed a series of <strong>hybrid imaging educational webinars</strong>, free of charge. Prominent experts in the field of hybrid imaging will share their knowledge about various modalities and subspecialties related to the fusion of nuclear medicine and radiology as well as molecular imaging. The first webinar on hybrid imaging basics will take place on February 22, 2017, and eight others will follow over the course of 2017. Information on all webinars is available on the ESHI <a href="http://eshi-society.org/webinars/">website</a>.</p> <p>Furthermore, a <strong>European Diploma in Hybrid Imaging</strong> is in the works. The ESR, ESHI and the European Board of Radiology (EBR) are working in close cooperation to establish a diploma focusing on hybrid imaging as a radiologic subspecialisation, and in parallel, a subspecialised curriculum is currently being defined. The examination will be open to radiologists and radiology residents in their fifth year of training.</p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg" alt="EU &amp; International Affairs" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://myesr.org/article/1023" data-a2a-title="European Society of Radiology increases promotion of hybrid imaging"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a> <a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> Thu, 23 Feb 2017 07:28:12 +0000 moderator_David 1023 at http://myesr.org ECR 2017 will be dedicated to YOUTH, die Jugend, de jeugd, la jeunesse, la giovinezza, la juventud, молодежь. http://myesr.org/article/540 <span property="schema:name">ECR 2017 will be dedicated to YOUTH, die Jugend, de jeugd, la jeunesse, la giovinezza, la juventud, молодежь.</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="2016-12-28T09:09:59+00:00">Wed, 12/28/2016 - 10:09</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p>The annual meeting of the European Society of Radiology will promote science and innovation on March 1–5, 2017, in Vienna, Austria.</p> <p><strong>Vienna, December 2016 (ESR)</strong> – The latest results and trends in medical imaging will be unveiled during the 29th European Congress of Radiology (ECR) at the Austria Center Vienna in March. Over 25,000 delegates from more than 100 countries are expected for the conference.</p> <p>The central theme of ECR 2017 is ‘youth’, and this focus on the young(er) age group is reflected throughout the programme of the entire meeting. The new generation of radiologists demands high-quality education, delivered in an efficient and understandable way (‘customer-friendly’).</p> <p>Professor Paul M. Parizel, from Antwerp, Belgium, the first one to occupy the new position of combined ESR/ECR President, is looking forward to various highlights at ECR 2017. “It is hard to choose on an individual basis, because the ECR 2017 Programme Planning Committee is committed to bringing something for everyone. The European Excellence in Education (E3) ECR Academies will include sessions on spinal imaging (combined neuroradiological/musculoskeletal approach), abdominal imaging, ultrasound, and, last but not least, Interactive Teaching Sessions. Other E3 highlights include The Beauty of Basic Knowledge, and the European Diploma Prep Sessions. In addition, as President, I hope that ECR 2017 will also be remembered for the grand opening ceremony, the honorary lectures, the social events, and most of all for the spirit of friendship and conviviality.”</p> <p>Joint sessions and collaborations with other societies and partner disciplines have played an important role in the ECR’s recent history and will do so again in 2017. Amongst others the ESR will have combined sessions with the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) on continuing medical education (CME), accreditation and certification, the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) on multicentre clinical oncological trials, and the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) on radiomics and imaging databases for precision radiation oncology.</p> <p>The strong relationship between the ESR and the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) has had a strong impact on the scientific programme further strengthening this ongoing collaboration. “Much more than other disciplines and specialties in medicine, radiology is teamwork. The team consists of certified radiologists, residents/registrars in training, radiographers, nurses, physicists, technical support staff, managers, etc. The quality of our performance depends on the strength of the entire team. This is why I am so happy that the ECR collaborates closely with radiographers, and the scientific programme for 2017 will reflect this growing symbiotic relationship,” said the ESR President.</p> <p>The European Federation of Radiographer Societies will also host its own ‘meets’ session for radiographers, in conjunction with representatives of the Association des Professionnels en Imagerie Médicale (APIM) and the Vereniging Medisch Beeldvormers (VMBv).</p> <p>The meeting will also offer a glimpse into the future of radiology through its New Horizons Sessions, which will focus on hyperpolarised MRI, imaging biobanks and the increasing clinical impact of MR/PET.</p> <p>There will be three State of the Art Symposia, ten Professional Challenges Sessions, 19 Special Focus Sessions, more than 70 Refresher Courses and four multidisciplinary sessions, which feature radiologists, oncologists, gynaecologists and surgeons involved in the interdisciplinary treatment of patients.</p> <p>After its introduction and major success at last year’s congress, the Voice of EPOS™ will again offer a platform for poster authors to present their work in a moderated poster session to an international audience at ECR 2017. In addition to organ-based topics, the Voice of EPOS™ will feature new exciting sessions such as computer applications, molecular imaging, physics in radiology, radiographers and radioprotection. In over 20 dedicated country sessions authors will present their posters in their native language to strengthen the exchange within the communities and serve a multilingual and international audience.</p> <p>To make it more widely accessible, the ECR will broadcast nearly every lecture via live web streams on ECR Live, a service delegates have used increasingly since its introduction four years ago. Lectures will also be available to watch on demand afterwards. This option will make it possible for delegates who are not able to attend a session in person to catch up on its content afterwards.</p> <p>Another popular feature of the ECR, the ‘ESR meets’ programme, which sees three national radiological societies invited to the congress, will feature Belgium, Peru and the USA as the programme’s guest countries.</p> <p>“I am very excited about the meeting with the USA. This session is organised in close collaboration with the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). With ‘ESR meets Peru’, I am inviting an important South American country, with a long history and a magnificent pre-Columbian civilisation. The session will allow us to become familiar with radiologists in Peru; in addition, our Peruvian colleagues have promised to teach us about the role of x-rays in Peruvian history research. The session ‘ESR meets Belgium’ will focus on the important role of radiology in acute conditions, and I am confident that the interludes will offer a typically Belgium flavour of history, humour, food and drink,” said Prof. Parizel.</p> <p>----------<br /> The ECR is the annual meeting of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), which represents more than 69,300 radiologists worldwide. The ECR is one of the largest medical congresses in the world, attracting more than 25,000 congress participants. With 300 companies exhibiting across more than 26,000m², its exhibition is also one of the largest medical exhibitions in Europe.</p> <p>For further information, please contact:</p> <p>European Society of Radiology | ESR<br /> Julia Patuzzi, David Zizka<br /> Press Office<br /> ESR Office: Neutorgasse 9, 1010 Vienna, Austria<br /> Phone: +43-1-533 40 64-545 | Fax: +43-1-533 40 64-441<br /> <a href="mailto:press@myESR.org">press@myESR.org</a> | <a href="http://www.myesr.org">myESR.org</a></p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg" alt="EU &amp; International Affairs" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://myesr.org/article/540" data-a2a-title="ECR 2017 will be dedicated to YOUTH, die Jugend, de jeugd, la jeunesse, la giovinezza, la juventud, молодежь."><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a> <a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> Wed, 28 Dec 2016 09:09:59 +0000 moderator_David 540 at http://myesr.org
