On 1 September 2022, i-Violin a 24-month project co-funded by the EU under the EU4Health programme 2021-2027 was officially launched. The project brings together 10 partners from 9 countries and aims to improve optimisation and harmonisation of oncological imaging procedures in Europe and to ensure their broad adoption to improve the quality and safety of cancer care for Europe’s patients.

Several ongoing projects and recent surveys have demonstrated disparities in oncological imaging procedures across Europe. Furthermore, they have also advanced the understanding of imaging and their effects, on which i-Violin will build upon; mainly the Horizon 2020 MEDIRAD project (no. 755523, website) completed in February 2022 and the ongoing SINFONIA project (no. 945196, website), both related to dose determination in three-dimensional imaging as well as image quality assessment.

During the Kick-Off meeting of September 19 and 20 in Vienna and online, the consortium will present its objectives and workplan to the European Commission and receive their feedback as the tasks get underway. Each work package will be detailed, and an overall project timeline will be negotiated. This is a tremendous opportunity for the visibility of the project and its work.
