EuroSafe Imaging will once again have a strong presence at the upcoming European Congress of Radiology 2017 to promote radiation protection and the ESR’s quality and safety initiatives throughout the conference at Austria Center Vienna from March 1-5, 2017. Read in the following what EuroSafe Imaging has in store for ECR 2017.

EuroSafe Imaging Café

For the first time, the European Congress of Radiology will feature the ‚EuroSafe Imaging Café‚ (Austria Center Vienna, 1st floor, foyer N). The EuroSafe Imaging Café will not only be a simple café, but a dedicated place for networking with your peers and learning about radiation protection while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. Plenty of information on EuroSafe Imaging’s activities will be provided at the EuroSafe Imaging information booth located in the Café.

Opening hours:
Wednesday, 1 March – Saturday, 4 March: 9:00-16:00
Sunday, 5 March: 9:00-14:00

Poster exhibition and presentation

The EuroSafe Imaging poster exhibition will use the ESR’s Electronic Presentation Online System (EPOS) for the second time. In line with the International Day of Radiology 2016’s focus on breast imaging, the overarching theme of the 2017 exhibition is Dose Optimisation in Breast Imaging in relation to Action 3 ‘Optimisation, DRLs, Image Quality’ of the EuroSafe Imaging Call for Action.

The posters will be available in the EPOS™ Arena on the first floor of the Austria Center Vienna (ACV). In addition, selected posters will be presented by the authors at the ‚Voice of EPOS‚ stage in the EPOS™ Arena. The session dedicated to EuroSafe Imaging will be on Saturday, March 4, 11:00-12:00, Stage 1.
