ECR 2019 Abstract Submission

The ECR 2019 Abstract Submission for
Scientific Papers,
Electronic Posters (EPOS),
Clinical Trials in Radiology and
Student Abstracts is
now open until
October 10. Submit your abstracts and be part of Europe’s most prestigious imaging meeting!

Invest in the Youth

Supporting the youth is one of the ESR’s top priorities and by its ‘Invest in the Youth’ programme the society is funding 1,000 young professionals in training (radiology residents, radiography students, medical physicist residents) every year. Successful candidates will receive free registration for ECR 2019 and an accommodation voucher. Find out all the details

Shape your Skills

This programme is financed exclusively by the ESR to support the continued professional development of radiographers. It is aimed at fully trained radiographers who submit an abstract to ECR and are active ESR members for 2018. Successful applicants will receive free congress registration and a hotel accommodation voucher. Click

Update from the ESR Journals Family The ESR is pleased to inform you about the latest happenings within its journals family: The ESR’s flagship journal, European Radiology, received an Impact Factor (IF) for 2017 of 4.027, climbing from 3.967 in 2016! Prof. Yves Menu, Editor in Chief, is thrilled with this news and looks forward to the future development of his journal. Find out
more. Insights into Imaging remains under evaluation for an IF, and has seen an upward trend in citation numbers and downloads which its Editor in Chief, Prof. Luis Martí Bonmatí, aims to further increase in 2018. The youngest member of the ESR Journals Family, European Radiology Experimental, recently celebrated its one-year anniversary since the online publication of its first articles. The journal, edited by Prof. Francesco Sardanelli, applied in late 2017 for PubMed indexation, whose evaluation is ongoing, and its application for Medline is still being prepared. Read more


From health policy to practice – ESR discussion event at the European Parliament

At the invitation of Member of the European Parliament, Biljana Borzan, and the ESR, MEPs, European Commission officials, patient representatives, and stakeholder organisations met at the European Parliament on June 6 to discuss the importance of better policy implementation to maximise benefits for patients. Read our report of the event

EuroSafe Imaging goes global

The ESR and
EuroSafe Imaging are pleased to publish a
series of videos dedicated to medical radiation protection. In the
first video, Prof. Guy Frija, Chair of EuroSafe Imaging, talks about EuroSafe Imaging’s pioneering role and worldwide collaboration efforts to strengthen quality and safety in medical imaging.


Education on Demand

The e-learning content on Education on Demand is continuously growing:
66 new modules were updated in the first half of 2018. The additional self-assessment, e-learning (videos) and literature modules aim to cover the learning content included in the revised version of the
European Training Curriculum for Radiology Levels I & II.

ETAP 2.0 The NEW ETAP 2.0 started its activity right after the ECR 2018 and its first certificates of excellence will be issued shortly. The first applicants have found the ETAP 2.0 assessment system and its user-friendly new platform to be reliable and useful. Join them and get your training programme to be among the first programmes in obtaining the ETAP 2.0 certificate of excellence!
Be better, be certified!

EBR Bulletin From October onwards, the European Board of Radiology (EBR) will have its own communications channel: the EBR bulletin. This online magazine will be released four times a year and will include dedicated contents about projects managed by the EBR: the Accreditation Council in Imaging (ACI), the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR), and the European Training Assessment Programme (ETAP 2.0).The EBR Bulletin will be distributed among all ESR members.

ECR 2018 – Budite deo evropskog najuglednijeg sastanka radiologije


Evropski kongres radiologije (ECR) je godišnji sastanak Evropskog Društva za Radiologiju (ESR) i najveći sastanak u Evropi za radiologe i inžinjere medicinske radiologije. Idući ECR, čiji moto je RAZLIČIT & UJEDINIT, će se održati u lepom Beču od 2. februara do 4. marta, 2018. Kongres sadrži bogat naučni i edukativni program za inžinjere medicinske radiologije i nudi posebne programe podrške.

Pripreme za ECR su u punom teku i podnošenje sažetaka je već moguće od 3. maja, 2017 (krajnji rok je 10. oktobar, 2017). Za više informacija o podnošenju sažetaka, molimo Vas kliknite ovde:

U tom kontekstu, jako je važno promovisati naša dva programa podrške za inžinjere medicinske radiologije, „Shape you skills“ (namenjen inžinjerima medicinske radiologije na početku njihove karijere) i „Invest in the Youth“ (namenjen studentima radiološke tehnologije) koja su povezana sa podošenjem sažetaka kao i sa ESR 2017 članstvom. Za više informacija o oba programa, molimo Vas kliknite na linkove ispod:


Molimo Vas da imate na umu da je krajnji rok za prijavljivanje za ESR članstvo kako bi imali vrlo povoljne kotizacije za ECR 2018 je 31. avgust, 2017. Za više informacija o svim prednostima ESR članstva koje iznosi samo 11 evra godišnje, molimo Vas kliknite na ESR logo dolje:

EFRS recommendations for the national implementation of the Radiation Protection Officer (RPO)

EFRS recommendations for the national implementation of the Radiation Protection Officer (RPO) role as defined under Basic Safety Standards Directive (2013/59 EURATOM)

Following our message below on the national implementation of the BSS, you herewith receive the „EFRS Recommendations on the Role of the Radiation Protection Officer“ highlighting the importance of this role for the radiography profession and with recommendations for further action on your national level.

It is important and urgent for National Radiographer Societies, together with the educators, to impress on the national competent authority the relevance of and the application of the RPO role for radiographers in medical exposures.


In January 2014, the European Commission published its latest Euratom Directive on Basic Safety Standards, relative to ionizing radiation, which is binding on all 28 Member States and must be implemented by February 6th 2018, in national legislation. This Directive repeals five previous Directives and seeks to both modernize and harmonise European radiation protection legislation by covering all sources of potential exposure in one document.
While the Directive retains most of the essential components of the MED 97/43 Directive, there are a number of additions of relevance to the radiography profession which all national societies should be aware of and consider actively lobbying on, in their own states in this vital period in advance of transposition of the Directive. Radiographers are key personnel, acting as the gatekeepers of patient and staff radiological protection and the key interface between patients and technology in the clinical setting. Despite this Radiographers are barely mentioned in the Directive, with Member States being given the flexibility to decide relevant responsibilities as per national practice and educational levels, while considerable additional responsibilities are overtly given to both radiologists and physicists.
This is the ONE and ONLY opportunity for national societies to have an input into this important radiation protection legislation (which may not be revised again for another decade) and to ensure Radiographers are clearly identified in their countries’ legislation and with appropriately defined legal responsibilities.
