The official blog of the European Society of Radiology


The main aims of this blog are to cast extra light onto some of the activities of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), and to hopefully give a little insight into some of what goes on ‘behind the scenes’. Of course, we will still talk about our own major topics, and we’ll offer occasional educational posts from our esteemed members. We might even tell you a little about what’s going on in our home city, Vienna, Austria, but the point is to do something a little different. Our website is still the place to find all the hard facts about the ESR’s congresses, courses, eLearning tools, etc., and you can still catch up with us on our Facebook page and on Twitter, but here you’ll find a deeper look at what’s happening in the world of the ESR; from news about the Executive Council’s latest innovations, to reports of our trips abroad, to the stories behind our own animations, posters and programme covers.

The ESR is the world’s largest radiological society, currently with more than 60,000 members from almost 200 countries. The society’s ultimate objective is to serve the healthcare requirements of the public by supporting science, research and education in the field of radiology. To achieve that aim, the society offers a large range of opportunities for professionals working in and around the field, from educational courses and workshops covering a huge range of topics and abilities, to support for project groups submitting proposals to the European Commission. We also hold one of the most highly-regarded annual meetings in the medical sphere, the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), once a year in Vienna, which attracts more than 20,000 delegates.

We welcome suggestions and connections, so if you know of anything that deserves the attention of this blog, please feel free to let us know!

      I am a radiographer Italian. I am working not only of technical equipment, but of people. I’m studying job satisfaction, stress the radiology technician, and I’m looking at the relationship between staff and patients, especially children in MRI.
      I find it very interesting speech by Jose Caceres.
      We are people, not machines!

      Dr. Caceres:

      In regard to case #30, may I suggest another tip to differentiate the right and left diaphragms on the lateral projection—if performed via left lateral projection, the right posterior ribs will be magnified and the right posterior costophrenic angle will project posterior to the left due to beam convergence.

      Thanks again for the excellent teaching cases.

      Dear ERS,

      I’m a retired physician specializing in brain/neuroscience.
      I see your intense interest in optical illusions and how to avoid their influences in your work. You might the Comparison Process going on in the visual cortex as a way to understand this better.


      Thanks for your time.
