Abstract Submission:



ECR abstract submission reached an all-time high this year! A record 7,198 abstracts were submitted and a stunning increase of almost 20% in submitted papers puts the ECR above the previously unreached 3,000 papers mark.





New Concept: My Thesis in 3 Minutes is a brand new scientific session format which we are excited to be launching at ECR 2018. It is aimed at residents and young radiologists who would like to present their thesis results as a first author, in a dynamic and entertaining scientific session.







Specifically conceived for radiographers, the new 'Shape your Skills' programme is offered and exclusively financed by the ESR in view of the continued professional development of radiographers. It is dedicated to radiographers at the beginning of their career and supports 500 professionals by giving them free registration to the ECR and two nights hotel accommodation.
Application is possible from July 3 to October 10, 2017.
