Welcome to the SCR’24

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 2024 (SCR’24) from June 20-22, 2024 in Palexpo in Geneva. In addition of being located in the world’s diplomatic center, we hope you will be able to take the time to enjoy the Geneva Lake, the city center with an international flair and its renowed jet d’eau. Geneva is not only a great conference location but also a stunning place to spend your evenings after the SCR.

The Swiss Society of Radiology (SGR-SSR) and its associated societies (SGPR-SSRP, SSVIR, SSER, SSSR, SSRMP), as well as the SVMTR-ASTRM (Swiss Association of Radiographers) and the SGNM-SSMN (Swiss Society of Nuclear Medicine)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 national and international speakers, as well as more dedicated sessions for each subspeciality.

The Saturday course will focus on oncology covering most parts of the body hereby giving you a broad spectrum of insights. A special programme tailored to the residents’ needs including the popular “How to survive the nightshift” session and many others will be part of the congress as well.

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 flourish even more in 2024. We are also looking forward to a wonderful society evening to network and connect with our colleagues as well as new people while enjoying a magnificent dinner and party!

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Dr. Dr. Johannes Heverhagen                     &                    Prof. Dr. Hatem Alkadhi

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 (no translation provided).

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