Calling all Radiology StartUps!
The German Radiological Society (Deutsche Röntgengesellschaft, DRG) invites all radiology startup companies to pitch their solutions to radiology healthcare professionals at their annual congress in Leipzig from 29 May – 1 June 2019.
From the land of Conrad Röntgen, discoverer of the x-ray in 1895, Germany has always played a strong role in the development of medical imaging. Our annual congress – known as the Röntgenkongress – or as we like to call it: RöKo, was first held 100 years ago! And oh, how times have changed! This RöKo is a celebration of “Unity in Diversity”, because this is what makes radiology so special in healthcare. The technical methods, the clinical applications, the integration into healthcare processes, as well as the medical professionals involved make radiology such a diverse healthcare specialty. Digitalization has been prominent in radiology for many years, and we see much more to come in the future. This is why we’d like radiology entrepreneurs from all over the world to be at RöKo 2019. Show us how you are changing radiology for the better, get feedback, network, negotiate a deal, win an award and bring your application onto the International Radiomics Platform, the radiology AI collaborative coordinated by the DRG!
For a small registration fee of 500 Euro, your startup will get access to some of Europe’s most influential radiology institutions.
