Dear colleagues and friends,
on behalf of the ESSR, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Annual Scientific Meeting of our society, to be held June 26-29, 2019, in the city´s Congress Center in our sunny Lisbon.
The Congress Centre is ideally located on the Tagus river side and the historical and cultural heritage of Belem. With nearby diversificated offers on hotels, restaurants, leisure activities and just a few minutes from the city center and the city´s airport, this congress center will provide optimum convenience and comfort for our meeting.
The Scientific program will focus on “Hip and Advanced imaging”. We will be reviewing the most significant advances in musculoskeletal imaging with an emphasis on the hip joint over the last 15 years and explore new innovations in our field.
The most significant advances in musculoskeletal imaging in the last years have involved the hip joint. Different technical innovations are now usual clinical routines not only in the athlete, but also for postoperative imaging, such as MRI of hip implants.
Research trends and worldwide experts underline how Artificial Intelligence will revolutionize radiology in the long term as it holds the potential for improved diagnosis, and many other types of decision making. Improving performance is very important to radiology and we will be discussing our role in healthcare in the future during our sessions.
The pre-congress course is structured to fully address the educational needs of musculoskeletal imagers. With two parallel tracks in “Ultrasound hands-on course” and “Learn with the Masters advanced tutorials”, attendees will have a wide selection of activities to fulfill their individual educational needs
Lisbon is a historical city full of stories to tell, where the sun shines 290 days a year, a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is famous for its hospitality and loves to receive people from around the world. Here you will have the opportunity to walk on the river side, go to the beach, golf, have a taste of our cuisine and our renowned wines, visit ancient monuments and palaces and listen to our UNESCO´S world cultural heritage song, Fado.
We hope to see you in our welcome reception on the 28th for a glass of Porto wine by the river side. An excellent opportunity for us to begin our meeting making new friendships, new scientific collaborations and having a glance at the future of MSK radiology with AI.
We are looking forward to receive you in our city!
“Bem vindos!” – Welcome!
Dr. Vasco Mascarenhas
