The European Congress of Radiology (ECR), the annual meeting of the European Society of Radiology (Vienna, Austria), is taking place onsite and online in Vienna from February 28-March 3, 2024. The ECR is one of the largest medical meetings in Europe and the second-largest radiological meeting in the world. ECR attendees span all areas of the radiology arena including radiology professionals, radiographers, physicists, and industry representatives. ECR’s theme for this year, ‘Next Generation Radiology,’ reflects not only its commitment to embracing the future but also its recognition of the transformative potential it holds. It signifies ECR’s commitment to exploring the uncharted territories of medical imaging, where artificial intelligence augments human expertise, where radiomics unlocks the hidden patterns within images, and where telemedicine connects physicians to patients across borders.

The ECR 2024 Opening Ceremony features technical innovations that have never been seen at the show before. In an ECR first, Congress President Carlo Catalano is sharing the stage with a co-host, Ameca, the world's most advanced robotic humanoid. Representing the forefront of human-robotics technology, Ameca offers its unique view on the evolution of medical imaging from the perspective of an artificially intelligent being. Not only does ECR 2024 have a wide range of scientific and educational sessions on offer, but it also includes special events and plenty of networking opportunities, bringing together some of the most innovative minds in the radiology and imaging fields. ECR 2024 delves deep into the frontiers of radiology, where quantum computing transforms image processing, where 3D printing revolutionizes personalized treatment, and where advanced molecular imaging unravels the mysteries of disease. Embodying the congress theme, this year’s In Focus program is dedicated to cutting-edge technology and practices in healthcare. Innovation in Focus has its own series of stand-out sessions and an area at the congress focused on all things future.

ECR 2024 continues to preserve the most beloved session formats from previous congresses. Attendees can find a rich variety of sessions, from State-of-the-Art Symposia to Image Interpretation Quizzes, from Refresher Courses to New Horizons sessions. Additionally, ECR 2024 is welcoming international perspectives from three Meets countries this year, Argentina, Italy and Singapore, sharing their unique insights and practices. The AI Theatre & Exhibition, dedicated to the world of artificial intelligence, and The Cube, dedicated to the world of Interventional Radiology, also make a come-back, along with three outstanding Plenary Lectures from highly accomplished speakers. Since ‘Next Generation Radiology’ demands collaborative thinking and diverse perspectives, ECR 2024 continues to feature Open Forum sessions, encouraging dynamic discussions and sharing of ideas among attendees. These sessions spotlight the role of radiology trainees, radiographers, and the numerous ECR initiatives. Furthermore, with a continued commitment to interactivity, ECR 2024 is offering a series of hands-on workshops on topics ranging from Cardiac CT & MRI, imaging stroke patients, MRI of the prostate and MSK Ultrasound. Additionally, the Clinical Trials in Radiology session format is marking a decade at ECR with a special commemorative session.
