At last ECR congress, held in Vienna from 13 to 17 July 2022, SIRM met the radiological societies of other countries (Argentina, Brazil, North America, France, Spain) for a scientific and cultural exchange on the activities ongoing and a comparison on current issues in the radiology field. It is of great interest for SIRM to entertain collaborative relationships with the respective scientific societies operating abroad, to draw useful ideas and actively contribute to international projects.

Many of our young radiologists belonging to SIRM Young attended the ECR congress, which was held in Vienna from 13 to 17 July 2022. Most of them presented their research in the scientific sessions and actively took part at scheduled events in the Austria International Center. After two years, meeting in the “summer edition” “of the European Congress of Radiology was an opportunity for the young radiologists to exchange views and also represented an important moment for SIRM Young members to know each other and to expand their network. SIRM Young is a part of our society and it’s a growing community: nearly 49% of our members belong to the younger age groups and are willing to be connected and be part of our network, coordinated by Federico Bruno. Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm!
