On behalf of the European Society of Paediatric Radiology (ESPR) the organisers would like to cordially invite you to participate in the 52nd Annual Meeting and 38th Post Graduate Course of the ESPR. The meeting will take place in the world heritage city of Graz, Austria, beginning with the two-day Post Graduate Course on June 2 – 3, 2015 and then the congress on June 4 – 6, 2015.
The meeting is the largest European meeting of paediatric radiologists. As one of the biggest congresses on imaging children worldwide, it has the reputation of presenting the most modern advances in paediatric radiology using innovative techniques, superbly combined with advanced and basic education options not only for specialists, but for all who have to deal with imaging children and treating children. Fostering communication and cooperation with our partner disciplines from paediatrics and paediatric surgery (e.g. paediatric urologists, paediatric cardiologists ….), is another goal of this congress.
Cooperation as well as the understanding of the clinically important queries and implications are essential to optimise imaging results. Additionally, the impacts of all modern options and new approaches for up-to date imaging in neonates, infants and children will be discussed.
Post Graduate Course
The course will be methodology oriented and interactive, with case-based presentations and will include radiation safety issues.
The congress will provide wide options for scientific discussions and presentations — both orally and by posters, including also educational posters and case presentations using a new electronic poster presentation platform. Furthermore, organ system oriented refresher courses and task force sessions will allow for updating knowledge to the present state of the art which will be enhanced by various expert reviews.
Daily interactive and practical workshops in small groups will help broaden understanding and give time for in-depth discussions in smaller groups or hands-on experience.
Two minisymposia on paediatric neuroradiology and on paediatric urogenital radiology will specifically target the needs of colleagues less deeply involved in imaging children or young radiologists.
Course syllabus and congress abstract book, will be provided as a dedicated supplement of the journal “Pediatric Radiology”.
So hopefully the congress will be a great opportunity to see and hear the latest in technology, clinical applications and practice. Moreover, ESPR 2015 will bring together leading key specialists and physicians to share their knowledge and vision of the current state of paediatric imaging and the direction this field may take in the upcoming years, also featuring a large technical exhibition.
