Josef Anton Lissner (1923-2006) founded the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in 1991. Under his presidency, the congress was established in a two year cycle and turned out to be a huge success. It brought together over 4,500 radiologists and lecturers from Europe, North America and Japan and marked a new era of international collaboration.
Today, the ECR has evolved to Europes largest radiological meeting and attracts over 20,000 participants on a yearly basis.
In honor of what Prof. Dr. Lissner achieved in his lifetime, Valérie Vilgrain from France will hold a Honorary Lecture during the ECR 2016. She will address the topic of liver imaging and focus on its current status.
