The European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology (ESCR) is a non-profit medical society based in Vienna, Europe, dedicated to promoting and advancing cardiovascular imaging by offering Annual Scientific Meetings, workshops, webinars, as well as other scientific and educational events.

Dear Colleagues,

It is our distinct pleasure to welcome you to the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology, ESCR.
Our vision is to improve health by advancing cardiovascular imaging (CVI) in Europe. Specific subspecialized expertise in CVI is built on broad based knowledge in general radiology.

ESCR is the platform for research, education, standardisation, quality-control, networking, advocacy, and certification of radiologists in CVI in Europe. Together with the European Society of Radiology, national societies, and clinical partners ESCR develops this fascinating and rapidly evolving field of CVI.

You are most welcome to join our vision and to become part of the ESCR family.

Prof. Jens Bremerich

ESCR Society President

Young Club


The ESCR Young Club is a working group of medical or PhD students, residents and young radiologists until the age of 35 (incl. the age of 35) with an interest in cardiovascular radiology.
The aim is to create connections and foster collaborations between young specialists and researchers, by providing an international communication platform to share experiences, exchange ideas and knowledge, and opportunities for social interaction.


CHAIRPERSON - Dr. Giuseppe Muscogiuri, Rome/IT

Buongiorno! I’m Giuseppe Muscogiuri, a radiologist focused on cardiovascular imaging. Currently, I work in Centro Cardiologico Monzino in Milan. My fields of interest include clinical and research activity of cardiac CT and MR on both adult and children.

SECRETARY - Dr. Firdaus Mohamed Hoesein, Utrecht/NL

My name is Firdaus Mohamed Hoesein and I’m a thirty-three year old cardiac and thoracic radiologist working at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, the Netherlands. I have a special interest in multi-modality imaging of diseases with both pulmonary and cardiac manifestation.


– Meet young radiologists, experts and make new friends
– Discuss your work and research
– Receive updates on upcoming events
– Help shaping the future of cardiovascular radiology
– Learn more about cardiovascular imaging from the ESCR Webinars
– Attend Young Club initiatives for aspiring cardiovascular radiologists during ESCR Annual Scientific Meetings

VICE-CHAIRPERSON - Dr. Paola M. Cannaò, Milan/IT

Salve! I’m Paola Cannaò, an Italian young radiologist currently working in Policlinico San Donato in Milan. Most of my clinical work is in cardiac CT and MRI but I still continue my research work in my department.

BOARD MEMBER - Dr. Alice Wielandner, Vienna/AT

Hallo! My name is Alice Wielandner. I am a 4th year radiology resident at the Department of Biomedical Imaging and Image-guided Therapy at the Medical University of Vienna. My research is focused on MRI and PET/MRI in cardiac transplant recipients and EIT in ARDS. I am very excited about the creation of the ESCR Young Club and I am looking forward to the first projects.


We are proud to present the ESCR Young Club Bulletins.
In case of any suggestions, comments, questions, please do not hesitate to contact the ESCR Office.

MR/CT Registry

The MR/CT Registry is a database for cardiovascular radiologists to upload their cases and examinations anonymously. At the same time they have the possibility to review cases of other registered persons.

CT Submissions

MR Submissions

Contributing users

Participating institutes

The aim of the registry is to document anonymous Cardiac CT- and MR- examinations, which have been performed in Europe, as complete as possible. This seems to be necessary to get a thorough overview of the already existing relevance of these challenging new possibilities in radiology. Further education in the emerging techniques of Cardiac Imaging will be supported.
The registry additionally intends to recruit teachers and identify potential training centers throughout Europe. Furthermore, the MR/CT registry does document and certify personally performed Cardiac CT- and MR-examinations for the application of further qualifying procedures (e.g. European Diploma in Cardiovascular Diploma, etc.). This is necessary on a European as well as on a national level.


To get an overview of the newest updates, statistics and numbers on the MR/CT Registry download the MR/CT Booklet.
