Watch here the recording of our ECR 2021 Satellite Symposium.
Our Satellite Symposium was held during ECR 2021, on Saturday, 6th March 2021, and broadcasted LIVE through ESR Connect, the virtual learning platform of the European Society of Radiology.

Title Symposium: AI Driven Workflow in COVID-19 Era
When: Saturday, March 6, 2021, 13:00-14:00 CET
Join through:   ESR Connect

Why should you join?
This Symposium showcases how AI can help to drive workflow in COVID-19 Era. Radiologists from different sub-specialties present how COVID-19 has demanded changes in their daily work environment. During this live Symposium, the speakers show how they were able to respond to these challenges and maintain optimal patient care.


The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has introduced or aggravated many workflow challenges and has forced healthcare providers to rapidly adapt in order to maintain a safe and effective delivery of care.

Five renowned speakers share their insights on AI driven workflow in COVID-19 Era from different angles and own modality perspective in this Symposium moderated by world renowned expert Prof. Mathias Prokop.

The Symposium starts with explaining how relocatable CT & MR imaging systems helped overcome infrastructure limitations in a period of increased demand. Also, maintaining image quality while reducing examination times has been crucial. The impact of Deep Learning Reconstruction in combination with other innovative technologies on image quality and workflow will be addressed in consecutive talks for CT and MR. We will also learn the experience from an interventional radiologist how to orchestrate complex team work including the installation and set-up of a 4D CT Angio Suite and interventional procedures during the peak of the crisis. Finally, the Symposium will close with practical tips and tricks of how an interdisciplinary ultrasound center under COVID-19 dealt with the situation and in fact improved the overall efficiency of their clinical pathways.

Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) - AI Heralds a New Era in CT
The prospect of high quality ultra-low dose CT images in useable real world time frames has been an elusive dream for many years since the dawn of CT back in 1972. As technology has evolved, some of these ambitions have been realized but never all together. That is until now. Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) with its revolutionary approach powered by Deep Learning heralds a new era in CT image reconstruction. See what Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) is capable of and transform what you thought was possible in CT - the future is already here.

Interdisciplinary Ultrasound Center under COVID-19 – First Line Target to Increase Efficiency and Speed in Routine and Advanced Exams
In the era of COVID-19 seeking for new ways to reduce exam time and the contact between patients and clinical personnel is paramount. Ultrasound, as a first line imaging modality, plays here a more important role than ever. New ultrasound techniques and applications have widened the scope of the ultrasound exam increasing the overall efficiency of the clinical pathways. In this presentation we will discuss how new developments including the use of AI can make the ultrasound exam more efficient, faster and at the same time increase the quality and diagnostic outcomes.
