ESR eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology
In the past few years, one of the main commitments of the ESR has been the improvement of the quality of radiology education throughout Europe and beyond. A lot has already been done for trainees and radiologists. At the same time, the ESR also dedicates many resources to undergraduates, to make radiology appealing to young, brilliant medical students. To that end, the Education Committee and the Undergraduate Education Subcommittee of the ESR have developed a unique educational project for undergraduates – eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology.
The eBook is created to serve medical students, but also residents in their first year(s) of training, as well as academic teachers to understand and teach radiology as a whole coherent discipline, respectively. Its contents are based on the Undergraduate Level of the ESR European Training Curriculum for Radiology and summarize the so-called core elements that may be considered as the basics that every medical student should be familiar with. The eBook is divided in chapters with content of each chapter prepared by foremost experts in that field. And perhaps most importantly, the eBook can be freely accessed by everyone on the ESR website.
After the successful publishing of chapters on Bile Ducts, Small Bowel, Large Bowel and Musculoskeletal Imaging, the 4 recently published chapters feature Cardiac Imaging, Paediatric Imaging, Central Nervous System and Ultrasound. This is an ongoing project and new chapters will be added in the future.
International Day of Radiology 2022
Let's celebrate together
On November 8, medical imaging professionals from across the world will celebrate the 11th International Day of Radiology (IDoR 2022).
We encourage all radiologists, radiographers, radiological technologists, professionals in other related fields and patient groups to join together on this day to recognise and promote the essential role that radiology plays in the patient journey.

New ECR 2023 dates - March 1-5, 2023
This July, it was with the utmost pleasure that we organised the very first summer ECR in more than 30 years under the outstanding leadership of ECR 2022 President Prof. Regina Beets-Tan. The Congress highlighted the optimal multidisciplinary approach to patient care, and was an unforgettable return to an onsite meeting experience.
Although we have had overwhelmingly positive remarks from attendees at ECR 2022, the feedback that we have collected from our stakeholders also indicates that many would prefer future ECRs to be again held in March instead of July due to the clash of commitments that arises for many attendees during a summer meeting.
Alongside others, our industry partners have also expressed a considerable desire to move the dates of our annual meeting back to March.
The ESR carefully listens to all congress participants. ECR is and has always been about you, the attendees, and the countless opportunities for learning, networking, and socialising that are available when you join your colleagues in radiology once a year in Vienna. Creating a hybrid meeting, accessible both online and onsite will always remain a priority for ECR.
However, going forward we also want to ensure that the opportunity to enjoy an onsite meeting experience is available to as many attendees as possible. In addition, it is vital that we have the continued support of our industry partners.
With this in mind, we are pleased to announce that the ESR office has successfully renegotiated the dates of ECR 2023 with our congress venue, the Austria Center Vienna.
ECR 2023 will now take place on March 1-5, 2023.
Both abstract submission and congress registration will be opened shortly. You will receive information on these key events very soon.
We would like to thank all those who shared their feedback with us and for your understanding in this matter.
We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Vienna, sooner than expected, on March 1-5, 2023, where we will celebrate ‘The Cycle of Life' together.

New dates announced for ECR 2023, 2024 & 2025
Vienna, Austria - May 12, 2022 – The European Society of Radiology has announced the future dates of the European Congress of Radiology for the upcoming three years. As in 2022, where ECR will take place on July 13-17, future ECR’s will continue to be held in July.
The upcoming dates for ECR 2023-25 are as follows:
ECR 2022: July 13-17
ECR 2023: July 5-9
ECR 2024: July 3-7
ECR 2025: July 2-6
The decision to hold ECR in the summer was made by the ESR primarily with considerations related to the pandemic. By organising a congress in the summer months, the society is able to hold the event under the most favourable conditions, to ensure a safe and secure meeting for all participants. By fixing this for the next three years the ESR can ensure continuity and stability for all those attending ECR and the team that organises the ECR.
Summer congresses provide new and exciting opportunities for the congress and its participants. The ESR is looking forward to taking advantage of the warmer weather to deliver an innovative and original meeting experience at all future ECRs.
The European Congress of Radiology 2022 will take place on July 13-17 as an onsite and online congress. Registration for the event is still open here. To take advantage of reduced early fees, those wishing to attend the congress should register before the deadline of May 18.

More opportunities to present research as abstract submission reopened for ECR 2022
Following the decision to hold two ECR events in 2022, the ESR has reopened abstract submission for its onsite congress in July. Abstract submission for ECR 2022, to be held on July 13-17 in Vienna, is now open. Aspiring presenters will have until March 16 to submit their abstracts and take advantage of the opportunity to present their research at the congress.
The decision to offer two ECR events in 2022 was made due to the developing epidemiological situation in Europe. To ensure that ECR 2022 can be held under the safest and most favourable conditions, the onsite congress has been postponed until July. A second online ECR event, the ECR 2022 Overture, will take place on the original dates of March 2-6 and will offer attendees a glimpse of what is to come at ECR’s grand return to Vienna in the summer.
Reopening abstract submission for ECR 2022 ensures that the congress will feature the most up-to-date scientific research and discoveries from the world of imaging, explains ESR President Prof. Regina Beets-Tan. “As the European Congress of Radiology has always been an exhilarating and wide-reach global stage for scientists to present their work, we wish to offer the opportunity to as many colleagues as possible to present ground-breaking science on an international stage”, she stated. “With critical breakthroughs and advancements happening rapidly in radiology each and every day we will ensure that ECR 2022 in July is packed, not only with state of the art and advanced education, but also with cutting-edge science from our medical field”. You can read Prof. Beets-Tan’s full announcement on the reopening of abstract submission here.
For those who already had an abstract accepted for ECR 2022 during the original abstract submission period, their presentation remains fully scheduled as planned. Nevertheless, they are also encouraged to submit additional abstracts if they have new research or insights to share with congress participants.
All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the ECR 2022 Programme Planning Committee and submitters will be contacted after the deadline.
