The 104th German Congress of Radiology, RöKo 2023, hosted more than 9,500 attendees. It consisted of both a virtual component and an in-person component spanning nearly four months.
The event was held from March to June and was hosted by the German Radiological Society (DRG) and the German Society for Neuroradiology (DGNR), the German Society for Interventional Radiology and Minimally Invasive Therapy (DeGIR), and the German Society for Medical Technologists for Radiology (DGMTR).
The in-person component was held in Weisbaden from 17 to 19 May at the Rhein Main Congress Center (RMCC) and included 4,500 participants. The digital conference included 5,100 participants, the DRG said.
The meeting set a new attendance record, said congress president Prof. Dr. Christiane Kuhl.
"These are outstanding figures that I would not have expected and that far exceed the figures from before the pandemic," she noted in a statement released by the DRG.
Next year's meeting will take place from 1 March to 22 June as a digital event. The in-person event will be held from 8 to 10 May, again at the RMCC in Wiesbaden.
