They were scheduled to attend and present at the meeting in Vienna, Austria July 15 – July 19, 2020. Dr Hanfi’s abstract was accepted for both oral and poster presentation. The congress is the annual meeting of the European Society of Radiology. This year the meeting was held virtually due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Sameer Hanfi's thoughts about a virtual meeting

"It was a pleasure to attend the virtual ECR 2020 this July. I was originally supposed to do an oral presentation at ECR 2020 in Vienna, but, unfortunately, this was switched to being virtual due to the ongoing pandemic. Uploading your voice to be presented virtually obviously cannot compare to presenting to an actual audience. The glaringly missing part of the experience was, of course, the social interaction with Radiology colleagues from around the world and the rich cultural and geographic diversity you encounter whilst attending the conference. That being said, nevertheless, I think ECR was a hugesuccess. I got to attend some great talks and listen to different  perspectives from Radiologists pertaining to different backgrounds and sub-specialties. Although we couldn’t meet in person, the experience was in itself very fulfilling and informative. I am looking forward to attending future conferences when hopefully, this pandemic ends and the experience can be more intimate and socially rewarding.”
