Programmplaner Radiographer Sessions



ESR press release Monday, October 23, 2017

With a record participation of nearly 2.000 radiographers from over 60 countries at ECR 2017, the ECR has further strengthened its position as also a truly international congress for radiographers active in the field of medical imaging in Europe.

The scientific radiographer programme will include 21 sessions featuring 111 presentations over 5 days. Most of these sessions will be translated simultaneously from English into German, French, Italian, and Spanish. New at ECR 2018 are the ESR/EFRS joint awards, which recognise achievements in various categories. 

“Apart from its rich scientific, professional and educational programme, the ECR 2018 offers not only a great possibility for continued professional development, but also a great opportunity to network with colleagues and friends from all over the world,” added Dr. Shane Foley from Dublin (Ireland), who functions as radiographer co-chair of the ECR 2018 Scientific Subcommittee ‘Radiographers’ and represents the EFRS in the Postgraduate Educational Programme Subcommittee of the ECR 2018 Programme Planning Committee.

In addition to its successful ‘Invest in the Youth’ programme, which has supported more than 7,000 young professionals (radiology residents, medical physicists undertaking PhDs, radiographers in training) over the last 15 years, the ESR, under the presidency of Prof. Hamm, has introduced a new initiative exclusively dedicated to radiographers at the beginning of their career  called the ESR ‘Shape your Skills’ programme. This supports 500 early-career radiographers by giving them free registration for the ECR and two nights’ hotel accommodation.
