ECR 2014 opens; EuroSafe Imaging launches; mobile devices show promise

The opening day of the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) used to be a pretty relaxed affair, but that's no longer the case. Thursday is now a full congress day, and the crowds were flocking into the Austria Center from early this morning.

The scientific sessions got underway at 10:30 a.m., and our team of six editors was there bright and early to bring you news direct from the conference in Vienna. You can see the fruits of our labor in the RADCast @ ECR.

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) chose the opening day of the meeting to launch its EuroSafe Imaging campaign. In a video interview, ESR President Dr. Guy Frija explains the rationale behind the launch. And for a separate article by radiation expert Madan Rehani, PhD, that provides further insight and information about the initiative, click here.

Mobile devices and tablets also were making headlines. Italian researchers believe an iPad can be an effective tool for reading CT angiography studies in patients suspected of having acute gastrointestinal bleeding. Get the story here. Presenters from Spain and Switzerland also shared their experiences of these devices, and you can read more here.

Our live coverage from ECR 2014 will continue through Monday, so please make sure you check back to our RADCast, at, as often as possible.
