Welcome to the SCR’22

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite you to the Swiss Congress of Radiology 2022 (SCR’22) from June 23-25, 2022 in Fribourg. The congress will take place in the Forum Fribourg, which has a privileged geographical location, midway between Zurich and Geneva, but also at a crossroads of language and culture, in a bilingual and attractive region.

After so many of you have followed the different live and on-demand sessions of the SCR’21 Online Edition, we are happier than ever to work on organizing the SCR’22 on-site.

Once again, the Swiss Society of Radiology (SGR-SSR) and its associated societies (SGPR-SSRP, SSVIR, SSER, SSSR), as well as the SGNM-SSMN (Swiss Society of Nuclear Medicine), and SVMTR-ASTRM (Swiss Association of Radiographers) are working with great dedication to develop an attractive 3-day programme, with common educational and scientific sessions, many exciting lectures covering the entire spectrum of diagnostic and interventional radiology with renowned international speakers, as well as more dedicated sessions for each speciality.

Part of the program will be targeted at postgraduate physicians and the younger generation of scientists. The Saturday course will focus on breast imaging and will be organized in collaboration with the Swiss Society of Senology (SSS). You will also find radiation protection courses, a musculoskeletal ultrasound course, as well as a MR security course which will give you tools for daily practice. A special programme tailored for the residents will also be proposed. In addition, the SSRMP will once again contribute to the scientific programme.

We all very much hope that the most important aspect of our congress, namely the conviviality of the exchange between colleagues, will be able to return to its rightful place in 2022. We are also looking forward a wonderful society evening at and near the Gutenberg Museum to network and connect with your colleagues as well as new people!

On behalf of all the societies taking part in the SCR’22, we look forward to seeing you in Fribourg in June 2022!

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Dr. Hatem Alkadhi

FAQ
What does SCR stand for?
The Swiss Congress of Radiology – short SCR – is the largest radiological scientific and educational meeting of Switzerland with an average attendance of over 1,200 professional and industry delegates. It is held every year in a different city in Switzerland.
Who organizes the SCR?

The annual Swiss Congress of Radiology is organized by the Scientific Committee of the Swiss Society of Radiology (SGR-SSR), in joint collaboration with the Swiss Society of Nuclear Medicine (SGNM-SSMN) and the Swiss Association of Radiographers (SVMTR-ASTRM). Moreover, the following associated sub-societies of the SGR-SSR contribute to the congress organization: the Swiss Society of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (SSVIR), the Swiss Society of Emergency Radiology (SSER), the Swiss Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (SSSR) and the Swiss Society of Paediatric Imaging (SGPR-SSRP). In addition, the Swiss Society of Radiobiology and Medical Physics (SSRMP), the Swiss Society of Radiopharmacy/Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry (SGRRC-SSRCR) as well as the Swiss Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (SGUM-SSUM) contribute to the scientific programme.

How does the congress programme look like?
The programme of the SCR consists of refresher courses, plenary sessions with lectures by national and international speakers as well as scientific sessions with oral abstracts. Moreover, the latest updates in radiology are presented in the poster exhibition. The SCR offers a different programme for radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists and radiographers. On top of that, many different companies present their latest medical and technical products in the exhibition area. So the SCR is not only a place to listen and learn but also a platform for personal exchange between friends, colleagues and companies.
Which audience does the SCR address?
The SCR is interesting for radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists and radiographers working in public and private hospitals as well as in private practices. The Congress also turns to residents, medical students as well as students for radiography/nuclear medicine. As the official congress language is English, the congress is not only interesting for national participants but also for an international audience.
In which language are the lectures?
The official congress language is English.Therefore, all lectures and workshops are held in English (not ranslation provided).

Some abstracts might be orally presented in German, French or English during the scientific sessions, although the visual presentations are all in English.
