Villepinte (France), January 24, 2019 – Guerbet, the global specialist in contrast media and solutions for diagnostic and interventional imaging, invites delegates to the upcoming ECR 2019 meeting to a totally innovative method of becoming acquainted with the company’s new strategies and products. Using a novel presentation concept developed in collaboration with ESR, and hosted at the Tech Gate Building, right next to the Austria Convention Center, the aim is simply to enrich the visitors’ experience through a unique combination of integrated solutions and related educational program. 

From initial examination, diagnosis, treatment with image-guided intervention and follow-up monitoring, radiology plays a central role in modern clinical medicine. The problem is that in the current extreme workload under which radiologists operate, their involvement is frequently limited to their specialty or the particular examination in which they are involved. In contrast, increasing evidence is accumulating suggesting that patient-centric workflows, i.e. pathways that deliberately place the patient at the focus of all activities can result in better outcomes, increased quality of care, improved patient satisfaction and lower costs. The challenge is how to implement such patient-oriented workflows in practice. Guerbet has risen to this challenge.

Thus, ECR visitors will have the opportunity to explore the many Guerbet solutions that apply throughout the whole patient pathway: with contrast media and injection systems including the new multi-patient solution: OptiVantage® multi-use injector for CT diagnosis and follow-up which answers market needs without compromising efficiency and patient safety. Guerbet will also display its digital solutions, featuring Contrast&Care® 2.0, a contrast media injection management solution aiming to improve both productivity of healthcare professionals and patient safety. Contrast&Care® 2.0 connects with all CT, Cath Lab and MRI injectors in the current Guerbet range.

To complement this, Guerbet will be providing a comprehensive educational program with workshops and symposium covering hot topics in modern diagnostic radiology such as AI, Gadolinium and brain deposition, Contrast optimization, etc., as well as in interventional imaging (cTACE and liver imaging). 

The ECR is the largest radiology event in Europe attended by more than 28,000 visitors from over 130 countries.
