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: Basel Physicists Develop Efficient Method of Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.

Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...

Im Focus: IoT-based Advanced Automobile Parking Navigation System

Development and implementation of an advanced automobile parking navigation platform for parking services

To fulfill the requirements of the industry, PolyU researchers developed the Advanced Automobile Parking Navigation Platform, which includes smart devices,...

Im Focus: First electrical car ferry in the world in operation in Norway now

  • Siemens delivers electric propulsion system and charging stations with lithium-ion batteries charged from hydro power
  • Ferry only uses 150 kilowatt hours (kWh) per route and reduces cost of fuel by 60 percent
  • Milestone on the road to operating emission-free ferries

The world's first electrical car and passenger ferry powered by batteries has entered service in Norway. The ferry only uses 150 kWh per route, which...

Im Focus: Into the ice – RV Polarstern opens the arctic season by setting course for Spitsbergen

On Tuesday, 19 May 2015 the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its home port in Bremerhaven, setting a course for the Arctic. Led by Dr Ilka Peeken from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) a team of 53 researchers from 11 countries will investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic, from the surface ice floes down to the seafloor.

RV Polarstern will enter the sea-ice zone north of Spitsbergen. Covering two shallow regions on their way to deeper waters, the scientists on board will focus...

Im Focus: Gel filled with nanosponges cleans up MRSA infections

Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego developed a gel filled with toxin-absorbing nanosponges that could lead to an effective treatment for skin and wound infections caused by MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), an antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This "nanosponge-hydrogel" minimized the growth of skin lesions on mice infected with MRSA - without the use of antibiotics. The researchers recently published their findings online in Advanced Materials.

To make the nanosponge-hydrogel, the team mixed nanosponges, which are nanoparticles that absorb dangerous toxins produced by MRSA, E. coli and other...
