Welcome

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is a great pleasure and honor to invite you to the next European Course in Paediatric Radiology (ECPR) of the European Society of Paediatric Radiology, that will be organized in Utrecht, The Netherlands, October 11-13, 2017.

The theme of ECPR 2017 will be Paediatric Musculoskeletal imaging, covering state-to-the-art imaging in paediatric accidental and non-accidental trauma, rheumatology, orthopedic diseases, oncology, and skeletal dysplasias. The scientific program will include state-of-the-art plenary lectures with several interactive (hands-on and case-based) moments, presented by an international faculty of renowned speakers in the field of paediatric and musculoskeletal radiology. The ECPR 2017 will be the first course of the newly developed 3 year European Paediatric Radiology Educational Curriculum and European Diploma of Paediatric Radiology of the ESPR (more information available soon on www.espr.org).

The course will be held at the department of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine of the University Medical Center Utrecht and Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital, located just outside the historic center of Utrecht. The medieval city center with its characteristic Dutch canals hosts many friendly outdoor cafes and restaurants, welcoming hotels, fashionable shops, modern architecture and fascinating museums. Utrecht is among the ‘most unsung cities’ of the world (according to Lonely Planet) and is small enough to explore by foot. It is located only thirty minutes by train from Schiphol Amsterdam airport.

We are looking forward to meet you in Utrecht!
