Radiologists from around the world present research and gain hands-on experience in musculoskeletal ultrasound at ESSR 2012

18.07.2012
Over 570 radiologists gathered in Innsbruck, Austria, last month for the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology's (ESSR) annual congress, which took place from June 28 to 30. This year's congress (ESSR 2012) saw a scientific programme devoted to hand and wrist disorders and the introduction of a new session on peripheral nerve imaging.

Participants also had the opportunity to take part in hands-on workshops, gaining vital first-hand experience in hand and wrist ultrasound. Twelve industry exhibitors also took part in the congress and showcased a range of cutting-edge radiological equipment and technological innovations.

This year's meeting marked the ESSR's 19th annual congress and its second time hosting a congress in Austria. The hands-on workshops proved to be particularly popular (with more than 150 applicants) and they allowed participants to learn and practice ultrasound techniques for the hand and wrist. In all, the meeting boasted almost 100 faculty members from around the world and it proved to be an ideal opportunity for beginners and experts to hone their skills in the field of musculoskeletal radiology.

The ESSR has always been keen to include non-members in its meetings and this year's congress attracted a great number. The congress president, Dr. Andrea Sabine Klauser, said ahead of the event, "The 19th ESSR annual meeting is open to all radiologists and clinicians with an interest in musculoskeletal imaging, both members and non-members of ESSR. Young colleagues and students are warmly invited to join our annual congress and to present their scientific work."

The ESSR is dedicated to improving diagnosis and treatment in musculoskeletal medicine through imaging. It supports and promotes research throughout Europe and its annual congress is the ideal occasion for much of this research to be presented and shared. The ESSR is a subspecialty society affiliated with the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and its annual congress is held with the organisational and administrative support of the ESR office.

Next year the ESSR will hold its annual meeting in Marbella, Spain, on June 13-15, 2013, with its organisers confident of another large turnout.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
