EIBIR at ECR 2017

The European Congress of Radiology (ECR) is Europe’s largest medical imaging meeting, attracting more than 25,000 medical professionals and scientists from all over the world. This makes it an ideal event for EIBIR to inform the scientific community of its work to support research in medical imaging and to disseminate the results from its current projects.

At ECR 2017, EIBIR will host sessions from two FP7 projects, VPH-DARE@IT and Project MITIGATE, as well as a session on EU research on cancer imaging with speakers from a range of other EIBIR-supported projects, including recently launached Horizon 2020 projects HYPMED and GLINT.
