ESCR Annual Scientific Meeting 2022

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

After two years of pandemic and online events, we are delighted to announce that the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology annual meeting is planned as an in-person event in the evocative setting of the eternal city, Rome, between October 27 – 29, 2022. 

Despite the rise of new technologies and the virtual environment that expanded our society educational proposals, we strongly believe that attending in person provides a key networking opportunity and we would like our attendees to get the utmost benefits from it.

We have selected a unique congress location in the heart of the city, close to the Spanish steps, where delegates and world experts in the field of Cardiac Radiology will share their research, knowledge and experience.

The scientific programme will include educational lectures and round tables on issues of major current interest and controversy and will reserve a wide space to the practical aspects through the organization of hands-on workshops; to give a roman touch to the congress, we have decided that each session will be labeled with an explanatory Latin aphorism to be read and explained by moderators as an introduction. An important contribution will also come from Symposia organized by Industry. Finally, a significant portion of the scientific programme will be devoted to original scientific data via oral and poster presentations of abstracts selected by peer review as during previous meetings.

Last but not least, October is the best month of the year to visit Rome, it can be so pleasant weather-wise, with the likelihood of sunny days and warm temperatures, that the Romans have a name for it: ottobrata romana.

We promise an unforgettable experience to all participants, let’s come to Rome and daje!!!

We have the honour and pleasure to invite you to the Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology – ESCR that will be held in Rome, Italy, from October 27-29, 2022As always, this event constitutes the most important meeting for non-invasive cardiac and cardiovascular radiologists in Europe, bringing together colleagues from all over the world to share their knowledge and experience in a friendly atmosphere.

– Main topics 2022
Radiology has always been a rapidly evolving specialty, closely linked to technical innovations but also actively contributing to a better understanding of pathophysiological processes in a wide variety of diseases. This is actually especially true in the field of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging, where new techniques including e.g. parametric MR mapping for tissue characterisation, non-invasive CT-based fraction flow reserve calculations, and evolving insights in the evaluation and treatment of valvular heart disease with CT/MR are leading to improved diagnostic possibilities and better patient care. The current annual meeting will provide plenty of opportunities to learn the latest insights into cutting-edge clinical imaging applications, not only through lectures by respected speakers, but also through a variety of dedicated workshops including contemporary topics like pre-procedural TAVI planning. Finally, the rise of artificial intelligence and big data is undeniable, with a growing impact on the workflow and position of the radiologist. Dedicated sessions will provide the necessary insights relevant to clinical practice.
