IDoR 2019

International Day of Radiology

The RSSA Welcomes the 8th International Day of Radiology – 8th November 2019

This year, on November 8, The RSSA along with other international radiological societies will once again celebrate the International Day of Radiology (IDoR 2019).

The IDoR 2019 is hoping to alert the world to the stunning medical, scientific and even artistic possibilities of medical imaging, the essential role of radiologists and radiographers as parts of the healthcare team in countless medical scenarios, and the high educational and professional standards required of all staff working in medical imaging.

This day is a joint initiative of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and with the full cooperation and involvement of the International Society of Radiology (ISR), as well as umbrella organisations on all continents including the RSSA. For 2019 there is also cooperation with the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR).

Sports Imaging has been chosen as the main theme of the day in 2019, to highlight the essential role that imaging professionals play in the detection, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of sports-related injuries, increasing the quality of care and treatment of patients.

Lets all celebrate on November 8th!
