ABOUT THE EVENT

2024 Annual Meeting: ECCN LEIPZIG

Leipzig, Germany

The 12th European Conference on Clinical Neuroimaging (ECCN, March 25-27, 2024) will again bring together physicians and researchers from all brain imaging modalities (from PET to SPECT to MRI) and will also provide a window into other innovative biomarkers, new technologies and emerging areas of clinical neuroimaging.
We look forward to seeing you in Leipzig to discuss clinical neuroimaging and science.
