The European Society of Radiology (ESR) has revealed plans to take its interactive learning Escape Rooms project on tour this autumn at two national congresses.
The Escape Rooms were among the most popular interactive highlights at ECR 2022 and 2023, being run by radiologists from the Charité in Berlin, ESR announced on 6 July. Teams taking part in challenges act as first-year radiology residents on their first night shift when the trauma team brings in a young patient in a car accident. Participants must complete the diagnoses within a given time frame so that the surgical team knows what to do in the operating room.
The Escape Rooms will be hosted at the Journées Francophones de Radiologie (JFR) 2023 and the Romanian Congress of Radiology and Imaging (SRIM) 2023, the ESR said. The Berlin team will again be in charge of the project.
In other news, the ESR reported new impact factors for its journals. European Radiology Experimental has received its first-ever impact factor of 3.8. In addition, European Radiology, the organization's flagship publication for clinical science, received a 2022 impact factor of 5.9 and Insights into Imaging, dedicated to critical and educational articles, received a 2022 impact factor of 4.7
