With the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) less than two months away, now is the time to register to reserve your spot.
Hosted by the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the ECR is an annual conference that takes place in Vienna, Austria every year. ECR is one of the largest medical meetings in Europe and the second-largest radiological meeting in the world, geared towards radiology professionals, radiographers, physicists, industry representatives and press reporters for both the medical and consumer press. The event is being held from March 11 – 15, 2020 at the Austria Center.
Canada is invited as one of the featured countries to be showcased at this event. With this, the CAR has put together an exciting line of up of speakers for our Canadian themed track, Canada Meets ECR, on Saturday, March 14 focusing on the Canadian Healthcare System, advocacy in a single-payer health system, AI in radiology and wellness. We are also showcasing the best and brightest that Canadian radiology has to offer.
We express our appreciation to everyone who submitted their abstracts for consideration for the Canada Meets ECR 2020 contest. The abstract review committee had a record number of submissions, which made selecting the top three abstracts extremely difficult. We congratulate the winners of the contest and thank everyone for participating.

The CAR will have great visibility at this event and a booth at the entrance of the conference center. We partnered with the Canadian embassy in Vienna and are working to offer a Canadian experience throughout the ECR meeting. During the evening of Thursday, March 12, at the Canadian Ambassador’s residence, there will be a formal reception held to welcome Canadian radiologists, Canadian diagnostic imaging companies, as well as international delegates. If you have not done so already, we invite you to RSVP to [email protected] as there is limited space.
The ESR will also be featuring a European track at our annual meeting in April. Visit car-asm.ca for more.
