The first Iranian seminar on Management in Radiology was held in Tehran on 2-3 February 2013. The meeting was aimed at providing update training on the hot topics in radiology management. The major themes of the meeting were safety and protection, quality management, strategic management and imaging economics.
        The Iranian society of radiology (ISR) invited Prof. Peter Mildenberger as the honorary president of the meeting together with Prof. Utku Senol from Turkey as guest speaker. The chairman of the seminar was Dr. Mansoor Fatehi, the general secretary of ISR and director of Medical Imaging Informatics Research and Education Centre (MIIREC) in Tehran. Although management issues have been part of the programme of the annual meeting of the Iranian society of radiology, this was the first dedicated meeting to cover only radiology management topics.
        The meeting was supported by local vendors of mostly informatics solutions as exhibitors and Shimaparto Company
(distributor of Shimadzo, Infinitt & few other company products in Iran) was the main sponsor. In total 163 people attended. 
        As an outcome of this meeting, it was decided to establish IHE Iran with the technical support of IHE Turkey (as part of the agreement signed between the Iranian and Turkish Societies of Radiology for local and regional collaborations). In addition, research on appropriateness in radiology and controlled terminology of radiology will be part of a joint local effort in MIIREC.
