ESSR meets GREECE
ESSR Meets the Hellenic Society of Skeletal Radiology
Course on Peripheral Joint Imaging
30 September - 1 October 2023 Athens Greece
The "ESSR meets Greece" course is co-organized by the European Society of Skeletal Radiology (ESSR) and the Hellenic Society of Skeletal Radiology (HSSR) under the auspices of the Hellenic Society of Radiology, the Hellenic College of Radiology and the Medical School of the University of Crete.
The course aims at radiologists, in academic, hospital and private settings, with a special interest in musculoskeletal imaging. The course topic is Peripheral Joint Imaging, covering refreshing and latest topics on Joints and Soft tissue MRI, Ultrasound and Intervention as well as Ultrasound Masterclasses, Interactive and Hands-On Sessions, presented by an international faculty of renowned experts in the field of musculoskeletal imaging.
The members of HSSR are proud and honored to welcome four distinguished ESSR members and outstanding radiologists to Greece; Professor Carlo Martinoli, Dr Eva Llopis, Dr Miraude Adriaensen and Dr Andrea Rosskopf. The aim of the course is to offer high-quality teaching in the field of musculoskeletal radiology and, at the same time, to encourage active participation and establish liaisons.
After a long period of predominantly online education, we have prepared everything for a face-to-face meeting, and hope to advance the exchange of knowledge and experiences, by bringing together experts from both societies and combining high-quality lectures with interactive hands-on workshops. The venue, Royal Olympic Hotel, is situated at the heart of the historic centre of Athens, a few minutes away from the Acropolis, with easy access to underground and ground transportation.
On behalf of ESSR and HSSR, we are looking forward to welcoming you to Athens for a high-quality educational event as well as a friendly get-together.
