Can you escape? - ECR 2019

This years European Congress of Radiology (ECR) is going to be the biggest one yet, as the member count of the European Society of Radiology (ESR) has exceeded 100,000 members. There are going to be countless of options to learn, discuss, explore and network, this year especially in Artificial Intelligence (AI), as last year but even bigger, in Interventional Radiology (the new Cube 2.0), and within the new programme Women in Focus.

We are also contributing to this years diverse program of the ECR - in an rather uncommon but innovative manner: the first Radiology Escape Room in ECR history.

First of all, what is an escape room (ER)? Escape rooms have become commonplace around the world over the past decade. Participants enter as a team and then must solve a series of challenges in a set period of time in order to get a key to “escape the room”.

Of course, we adapted the game for the medical world, so you are able to participate with your colleagues. In order to escape our emergency room, it is your task to diagnose all the pathologies our "patient"suffers from. You might use several modalities in trauma imaging. If you are able to detect all pathologies, you can save the patients life and escape the emergency room.

But as in real life, you need to keep an eye on the time and solve our prepared radiologic riddles quickly (up to 30 minutes time), otherwise the patient will succumb to his injuries.

The Escape Room will be loaded with puzzles and trivia questions related to radiology and sessions tailored to all training level, from resident to board certified radiologist. We hope that we are able to challenge your communication skills and your logical reasoning as a team and you will leave our room with a positive experience.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

ECR tips:

  • If you have not already registered for the ECR 2019, you can still do it. There are special prices for residents and students!

  • Make sure to plan your personal scientific programme in advance with the schedule planner.

  • Check out the Rising Stars initiative, by which the ESR targets especially young radiologists and students with an additional programme.

  • Also do not forget to check the industry programme, which you can browse and register for at your user area. This is also where you can register for Interventional Radiology sessions at the Cube 2.0.
