Guerbet at the forefront of radiological innovation at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2024

Guerbet, a key player in contrast agents and medical imaging solutions, long-standing partner of European Congress of Radiology (ECR), is proud to contribute with its program to this year's ECR theme "Next Generation Radiology".

Leader in MRI, Guerbet will unveil significant advances in Diagnostic Imaging with the approval in Europe of Elucirem™ (Gadopiclenol) the next generation of GBCA* from Guerbet and a disruptive Artificial Intelligence program.

Guerbet, a pioneer in Diagnostic Imaging, is distinguished by its unwavering commitment to innovation and quality in medical imaging solutions offered to radiologists and patients
Elucirem™ (Gadopiclenol), a contrast agent with high relaxivity enabling less gadolinium use newly approved in Europe will be officially presented to European radiologists.  With strong clinical evidence[1], Elucirem™(Gadopiclenol) offers a significant advance in macrocyclic contrast agents[2], guaranteeing high-quality image while minimizing impact on patients and the environment[3].

Guerbet's presence at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) thus testifies to its commitment to redefining medical imaging standards, placing the company at the forefront of innovations in medical imaging worldwide.

“Guerbet remains committed to pushing back the frontiers of medical imaging, offering innovative solutions that redefine standards of care while integrating environmentally friendly practices”, concludes Philippe Bourrinet, Guerbet VP Medical Director.

Guerbet is positioning itself as a main player in AI in radiology.

The AI program will explore Guerbet's major advances in this field, highlighting crucial topics such as MRI detection of prostate cancer, the use of deep learning-based algorithms to detect focal liver lesions, and a new approach with AI for pancreatic cancer detection.

To introduce the ECR 2024, Philippe Bourrinet (VP Medical Director) and Faizal Mansor (Global Head of Marketing) will be interviewed on February 28 at the opening of the Congress by the European Society of Radiology: Less is more in contrasted MRI: benefits for radiologists, radiographers, patients & the planet. - ESR Connect (myesr.org).

We look forward to seeing you at ECR 2024!

"We are incredibly excited to welcome Guerbet as a key partner at this year's congress. Their approach to AI and innovation is perfectly aligned with this year's congress theme of Next Generation Radiology", stated Carlo Catalano, ECR 2024 Congress President.
