After an extraordinary year of achievements, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 8th ESMRMB-GREC meeting, to be held in Basel, Switzerland, during the ESMRMB Pre-Congress day.

This meeting is designed as a unique context aimed at sharing ideas and data on MRI contrast agents research and possible gadolinium toxicity after the administration of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs). Joint international efforts will remain essential to optimize diagnostic efficacy and improve patient safety in MR imaging. Since 2016, the ESMRMB-GREC has adapted the contents of the discussion to current hot topics and has continuously improved its influence on the clinical and pre-clinical role of gadolinium-based contrast agents.
This 8th GREC meeting will cover topics related to the four missions of the group: 1. Clinical indications and safety of GBCA-enhanced MRI; 2. The chemical approach to improved MRI-contrast agents; 3. Alternative methods to GBCA-enhancement using artificial intelligence methods; 4. Emissions of GBCAs into the aquatic environment.
As a working group of experts with multidisciplinary background, we support the MR community with continuous education, information and scientific updates on the use and clinical applications of GBCAs.


  • To share evidence-based state-of-the-art information on specific hot and emerging topics in GBCA-enhanced MR imaging
  • To promote the dissemination of knowledge by means of papers to be published on behalf of the the ESMRMB-GREC working group
  • To discuss on research activities and research funding opportunities
