Given the current situation, we had to take the difficult decision not to hold the SCR’21 as an on-site “face-to-face” congress. Instead, we will transform the congress into a series of online sessions.
This decision was made jointly by the SGR-SSR Executive Board and the SCR Scientific Committee, which also includes representatives from SVMTR-ASTRM, SGNM-SSMN, and all associated societies (SGPR-SSRP, SSER, SSVIR, SSSR and SSRMP).
We will share additional information within the next weeks, but we are pleased to already inform you about the following:
- The SGR-SSR Official Training and Continuing Education Course will be held on the same date as planned (Saturday, June 26, 2021) as a one-day online event. It will be accredited with 8 CME points and will be the kick-off event of our virtual congress.
- Starting in July, one-hour online sessions on various radiological topics will take place approximately twice a month until the end of 2021 (each accredited with CME points).
- Abstracts selected for oral presentations will be presented during “Scientific Clubs“. A digital poster exhibition will be available to browse through the abstracts selected for posters presentation.
- The SGR-SSR Annual General Assembly will be held as a two-hour online event on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.
Doctors in residency training who require congress and/or continuing education course attendance will have the following options:
- The Saturday course (June 26, 2021) online attendance is equivalent to the traditional SGR-SSR Official Training and Continuing Education Course attendance.
- Online sessions attendance will be converted at the end of the year into a certificate, equivalent to the congress attendance.
Registration for all above-mentioned online sessions will be free of charge for all SGR-SSR, SVMTR-ASTRM, SGNM-SSMN, SGPR-SSRP, SSER, SSVIR, SSSR and SSRMP members!
Our speakers, abstract submitters, industry partners and every other person directly involved will receive specific detailed information in the upcoming weeks.
We are convinced that with this concept, we can offer a good alternative to the classical congress and hope for an improvement of the situation in 2022, when we will surely be meeting you as planned for the SCR’22 from June 23-25, 2022 in Fribourg!
We thank you all for your patience. We hope that you will understand and support his decision.
With our best regards,
Prof. Dr. Hatem Alkadhi

What does SCR stand for?
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.

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