Our congress is designed to share the latest developments on contrast agents in radiology and cardiology, new imaging modalities, drug delivery, tissue targeted imaging, competing technologies and new potential clinical applications.

Orals & Posters 

We offer the opportunity for scientists to present their own work to our global audience by either oral or poster presentation, and we especially encourage young scientists to do so. The conference offers engaging in lively discussions and exchanging knowledge and ideas.


We encourage young/early career researchers to submit their work to a group of professionals. The winner will receive a cash award of 1000,- Euro. Our competition topic for this year is: therapy/drug delivery with ultrasound-activated cavitation nuclei
