The International Day of Radiology (IDoR) will be celebrated for the seventh time on November 8, this year focusing on cardiac imaging. Cardiac imaging is a fast-growing subspecialty of diagnostic radiology that plays a huge part in the assessment and management of heart patients throughout the world. Cardiac radiologists – the experts in charge – supervise or perform imaging examinations, using technology such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and then interpret the resulting images to diagnose and monitor a wide range of diseases of the heart.
Monday, October 2, 2017 (ESR, Vienna). The International Day of Radiology (IDoR) will be celebrated for the sixth time on November 8, this year focusing on emergency radiology. As in previous years, more than 150 radiology-related professional societies from around the world will participate in the International Day of Radiology, holding a range of different events to celebrate, such as public lectures, department open days, national media appearances, and press events. Following on from recent themes such as paediatric imaging and breast imaging, this year the focus will be on radiology in emergency settings.
The 27th International Congress of Radiology, sponsored jointly and combined with the Sao Paulo Radiological Society 42nd annual meeting on 3-6 May of 2012 was a towering success for both societies, agreed ISR President Nicholas Gourtsoyiannis and Sao Paulo President Ricardo Emile Baaklini. It was the first combined and bilingual international organization for both societies.
