Welcome to ESNR 2015


Dear Friends,

On behalf of the European Society of Neuroradiology (ESNR), we welcome you to our 38th Annual Meeting, 22nd Advanced Course on Diagnostic Neuroradiology and 6th Advanced Course on Interventional Neuroradiology.

Recent scientific publications are changing our daily practice in the field of Interventional Neuroradiology and for this reason a wide space is dedicated to the diagnostic and therapeutic approach of AVMs (Advanced Course in Interventional Neuroradiology) and the interventional management of ischemic stroke.

Emergency still remains a topic to be updated and for this reason we decided to dedicate a full day of the Advanced Course in Diagnostic Neuroradiology to it.

The 38th Annual Meeting is a scientific happening 2½-day packed with information but also providing time to relax and enjoy the beauty of Naples. Multiple diagnostic session on neoplasms, infection, head and neck and pediatric neuroradiology will fill all the days. On Saturday a Joint Session with ASNR will be a good opportunity to exchange experience and knowledge with our colleagues coming from overseas. We received around 300 scientific abstracts, not only from all over Europe, but also from the Americas and Asia. Parallel Scientific Sessions and Scientific Posters will provide a platform to present the newest developments in Neuroradiology.

In keeping with ESNR traditions, we have created an attractive Social Program, for the enjoyment of all. Naples is well known worldwide for the Museums (Archeological Museum with all the Pompei ruins, Capodimonte Museum with all the Bourbons masterpieces, Castel Nuovo and Castel S. Elmo, symbol of the Middle Age). Certainly the place that includes art, culture and music is S. Carlo Theater, the oldest Opera House in the world; a special evening at the Theater has been organized on Friday evening and participants can decide to reserve the concert only or concert & dinner that will be served in the ancient Theater Foyer.

The Congress Venue is situated on the waterfront, overlooking Castel dell’Ovo to keep you awake and relaxed if you want to rest a bit between a session and another.

The city of Naples is also famous for the quality of the food and many interesting places to visit in one day trip such as Capri, Pompei, Sorrento and Ischia. Thermal bath is also available to enjoy your staying. Finally, shopping in Naples is always an experience with famous worldwide brand for ties, shoes and clothes.

We wait for you in Naples!! The success of the Meeting depends on you!!
