ESHI looks back on 2017 and gets ready for a promising 2018!

ESHI - European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging - is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting and coordinating the scientific, philanthropic, intellectual and professional activities of hybrid medical imaging specialists and users.


ESHI is looking back on a very successful year 2017 with three courses, nine webinars and a rapidly growing membership base.  In particular, the latest course on hybrid imaging in oncology, which took place on December 14-15 in Vienna, was attended by over 150 participants from 44 countries, including last-year residents, general radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and oncologists.


Another course, jointly organised by ESHI, the European School of Radiology (ESOR) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was a big success and 12 participants from low and middle-income countries were able to take advantage of a sponsorship offered by the ESR and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Overall ESHI has given grants to more than 300 young radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians in 2017.

Last year ESHI was very active in organising free educational webinars on hybrid imaging, featuring prominent experts in the field of hybrid imaging: around 1,000 professionals from 81 different countries have registered for these webinars.

Finally, ESHI has seen a constant rise in membership since its foundation in March 2016 and is confident that this will continue in 2018. Since the end of 2016, membership has more than doubled and the society is proud to announce that it currently has 1135 members making it the fastest growing hybrid imaging network in Europe.


In 2018, European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging (ESHI) and European Society of Molecular and Functional Imaging in Radiology (ESMOFIR) will merge to become ESHIMT - European Society for Hybrid, Molecular and Translational Imaging.
