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.

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.
The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...
Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.
The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...
Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.
Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...
The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.
A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
