After more than three years, the European Congress of Radiology 2022 (ECR 2022) finally returned onsite with its theme of “Building Bridges” for a smart congress featuring onsite and online activities showcasing the very best science from the world of medical imaging. Returning with style to an onsite format, the industry exhibition organized by European Society of Radiology (Vienna, Austria) showcased state-of-the-art technology and innovative services from medical imaging’s biggest and brightest companies. The event took place in Vienna on July 13-17 was also streamed online and delivered an ECR experience like no other, with a highly multidisciplinary program, exciting summer social events, and a buzzing industry exhibition that was worth the wait.

The ECR is one of the largest medical congresses in the world, attracting more than 30,000 congress participants. With 300 companies exhibiting across more than 26,000m², its exhibition is also one of the largest medical exhibitions in Europe. Attendees at ECR 2022 spanned all areas of the radiology arena including radiology professionals, radiographers, physicists, industry representatives, and press reporters for both the medical and consumer press. The congress focused on multi-disciplinarity and interactivity, with the aim of building bridges between radiologists, radiographers and their clinical, research and industry partners, as well as patients. ECR 2022 also featured brand-new session formats, open forums and a huge range of events, including plenary lectures from visionary leaders, mentors and industry representatives. The ECR 2022 program introduced shorter lectures and longer case-based discussions, and welcomed a wider variety of clinicians to share their insights.

Artificial intelligence (AI), currently one of the hottest topics in radiology and on everyone's lips, was one of the highlights of the ECR again this year. ECR 2022 attendees joined a plethora of scientific sessions on AI, ranging from machine learning, deep learning and big data, among others. After its hugely successful debut in 2019 and highly anticipated appearance in 2020, the AI Theatre finally opened its stage again at ECR 2022. The AI Exhibition and the AI Theatre proved to be the best place to explore how machine learning, deep learning and big data are reshaping medical imaging and to find out what the future of radiology holds. ECR 2022 saw an ever-growing number of companies and innovators at the forefront of the field participating in industry pitches, keynotes and panel discussions at the AI Theatre. The scientific sessions of the AI Theatre were CME accredited for the first time this year.

"Innovation is at the very heart of radiology," said Prof. Regina Beets-Tan, ECR 2022 Congress President. "We are a technology-driven discipline, and it is through our partnerships with industry leaders that we perfect the imaging solutions that we deliver to our patients."
