The Swiss Congress of Radiology – short SCR – is the biggest radiological scientific and educational meeting of Switzerland with an average attendance of over 1,200 professional and industry delegates.
The SCR is organised each year 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 (SVMTRA-ASTRM). Moreover, the following associated sub-societies of the SGR-SSR are also part of the Scientific Committee coordinating the congress’ organisation: 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.
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. Furthermore, the latest updates in radiology are presented in the poster exhibition. The SCR offers a different programme for radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists and radiographers. Many different companies also present their latest medical and technical products in the exhibition area.
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 towards residents, medical students as well as students for radiography/nuclear medicine. Moreover, for the first time, there will be radiation protection & MR Security courses dedicated to offering radiation protection tools for daily practice to all medical professionals. As the official congress language is English, the congress is interesting for national participants as well as for an international audience.
The SCR is not only a place to listen and learn but also a platform for personal exchange between friends, colleagues and companies!
We will be happy to meet you at the SCR’21 in Davos!
