Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
VIENNA - The European Congress of Radiology (ECR) got underway in Vienna this morning in stunning early spring sunshine. Judging by the huge crowds thronging from the U-Bahn station to the congress venue, this event will be seriously well-attended.
Our five-strong editorial team has joined the crowds in the Austrian capital to bring you live news from the congress.
On the opening day, hybrid imaging created a buzz at the congress. A new European society will launch officially on Sunday, and we asked the treasurer, Dr. Thomas Beyer, to tell us why the new society is needed and how it will operate. Watch the video here, and check back for six more interviews to be posted this week.
