Meeting Highlights


The 25th Annual Congress of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR) was held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, at the NH Krasnapolsky, from 13–16 June 2018. The ESSR celebrated “25 years of excellence in musculoskeletal imaging”, promoting educational and research activities. This has been an important milestone for the society, which has an increasing amount of members, almost 1800 until today from around the globe ( This years’ theme was “Muscle and Nerve”, a topic of increasing interest in musculoskeletal imaging. New developments in both ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging providing highly detailed anatomy have become available. Consequently, this meeting focused on essential knowledge of muscle and nerve anatomy, optimizing imaging techniques and interpreting pathology.

Program “Muscle and Nerve”

Delegates had the opportunity to refresh their knowledge and get updated on the latest advances in musculoskeletal radiology. Two ultrasound...
