What does SCR stand for?
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. It is held every year in a different city in Switzerland.
Who organizes the SCR?
The annual Swiss Congress of Radiology is organised 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 take part at the congress organisation: the Swiss Society of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (SSVIR), the Swiss Society of Radiopharmacy/Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry (SGRRC-SSRCR), the Swiss Society of Emergency Radiology (SSER), the Swiss Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (SSSR) and the Swiss Society of Paediatric Imaging (SGPR-SSRP).
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, an interesting poster exhibition presents the latest updates in radiology. 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 at a large exhibition. So the SCR is not only a place to listen and learn but also a platform for personal exchange between friends, colleagues and companies.
To which audience does the SCR address?
The SCR is interesting for radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists and radiographers in public and private hospitals as well as in private practice. 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.
