The work developed in Grupo Luz Saúde imaging centres, at the level of diagnosis and therapeutics, research and medical training, was distinguished in the congress of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), which took place in Vienna (Austria), between February 28 and March 4. 

With over 25 thousand participants, the ESR annual congress is the major European meeting of professionals in this field and the second largest at world level. In this year’s edition, including themes such as artificial intelligence in imaging and value-based medicine, Portugal was one of the countries invited by the organization to share what has been done in the field, together with China and Switzerland.

It is worth noting that Grupo Luz Saúde is the first healthcare service provider in Portugal, with totally digital imaging departments, possessing the largest and most advanced technological equipment in the country, also important at European level. Moreover, its professionals develop, in parallel with their clinical activity, wide research and education work. In Portugal’s stand in the congress, for instance, a video was exhibited showing the several operational units of Hospital da Luz Lisboa Imaging Centre.
