IDoR 2015: International Day of Radiology

IDoR: Let's celebrate togather

This year, on November 8, the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will celebrate the Forth International Day of Radiology (IDoR 2015) with radiological societies the world over. The International Day of Radiology is an annual event held with the aim of building greater awareness of the value that radiology contributes to safe patient care, and improving understanding of the vital role radiologists play in the healthcare continuum.

Medical imaging is one of the most exciting and progressive disciplines in healthcare and a field of great activity in terms of technological and biological research. X-rays, MRI scans, ultrasound and numerous other medical imaging technologies, as well as the eye-catching images associated with them, are known to many people, but the exact purpose and value of these services is not widely understood.

We therefore chose November 8, the day that Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the existence of x-rays in 1895, as a day of action and awareness. We hope to alert the world to the stunning medical, scientific and even artistic possibilities of medical imaging, the essential role of the radiologist as a part of the healthcare team in countless medical scenarios, and the high educational and professional standards required of all staff working in medical imaging.

International Day of Radiology

November 8 is theInternational Day of Radiologyand this year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever. This time the day is dedicated topaediatric imagingand the important role that radiology plays in the detection, diagnosis and management of a wide variety of diseases affecting children, and the special treatment younger patients need.

A book on paediatric imagingwill be produced, written by international experts in the field, giving readers an insight into the work of paediatric radiologists and the significance of the specialty. This book will be available in autumn. Clickhereto read our other publications about radiology.

Last year more than 100 radiology-related professional societies from around the world celebrated the International Day of Radiology and this year we hope to see even more joining the initiative and bringing even more momentum to this already fast-growing movement.Participating societieswill hold a range of different events to celebrate the day, which you will be able to find on theactivitiespage.


The day is a joint initiative of the ESR, the RSNA and the ACR, with the full cooperation and involvement of the International Society of Radiology (ISR), as well as umbrella organisations on all continents, including the Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology (AOSR), the Colegio Interamericano de Radiología (CIR), the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR), and the Radiological Society of South Africa (RSSA – which also represents neighbouring countries). The European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) also supports the International Day of Radiology.

Many European national radiological societies, radiological subspecialty societies & allied sciences societies will be invited to participate, many of whom will arrange their own activities, such as public lectures, department open days, national media appearances, and press events. In North America, numerous radiology-related societies will also take part in the International Day of Radiology.
