The Youth focus is reflected throughout the 2017 program, to which end the planners considered the demands of a young generation of radiologists for high-quality education, delivered in an efficient and customer-friendly way. The more interactive session will attract junior radiologists.
Professor Paul M Parizel is the first person to occupy the new role of a combined ESR and ECR presidency. The participants expect a varied program. There will be three state-of-the-art symposia, 10 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.
The good relationship between the ESR and the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFSR) also has a strong impact on the program. ‘The quality of our performance depends on the strength of the entire team,’ Parizel observed. ‘I am so happy that the ECR collaborates closely with radiographers,
and the scientific program for 2017 will reflect this growing symbiotic relationship.’
