Record Attendance at ECR2019
Always an important event for UCD Radiography & Diagnostic Imaging, this year’s European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2019) will see a record attendance by the UCD group. Run by the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and one of Europe’s largest scientific meetings, ECR 2019 takes place in Vienna from the 27th February to the 3rd March 2019.
In total there will be 43 presentations from UCD Radiography & Diagnostic Imaging including papers at the scientific sessions, and at both the Voice of EPOSTM (electronic presentation online system) and the MyT3 sessions. The UCD group will provide invited speakers to the Research courses, Professional Challenges session, Special Focus events, to the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) and to join ECR/EFRS sessions within the educational programme. The UCD delegation will include staff, current and recent students as well as UCD-affiliated radiologists from across our nationwide clinical training network. Their growing presence at this key European meeting is evidence of the increased stature of the UCD group and a testament to their recent research productivity.
Through its 40 member organisations, the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) represents more than 100,000 radiographers and 8,00 radiography students across Europe. It aims to “represent, promote and develop the profession of radiography in Europe, within the whole range of medical imaging, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy and moreover everything that is directly or indirectly related or beneficial to this role, everything in the broadest meaning”. The EFRS is currently led by its President, Associate Professor Jonathan McNulty, UCD Associate Professor and Head of Subject, Radiography at the UCD School of Medicine. Dr McNulty is currently Associate Dean for Graduate Studies within the School.
