BELGIUM – Belgian Society of Radiology
The Belgian Society of Radiology (BSR) was founded in 2013 as a merger of the National Union of Radiologists (NUR), the Consilium Radiologicum Belgicum and the Royal Belgian Radiological Society (RBRS). Its goals are to defend, to study, to protect and to foster both the scientific and professional interests of all Belgian radiologists. The BSR represents its members at the national, international, federal and community level, channelling all communication with the authorities, organisations and bodies that govern health care and health administration in Belgium and beyond. All important professional issues, such as education, accreditation, professional defense, licensing and daily practice are part of this mission. Our website and contact details:

CROATIA (REPUBLIC OF CROATIA) – Croatian Society of Radiology (CSR)
The German physicist and first Nobel laureate in physics (1901) WCRÖNTGEN discovered X-rays (1895) and thus began a new profession / science – radiology / radiology. The practical application of this invention in our area began soon after the invention with the purchase of the first X-ray device in Rijeka (1897). In the beginning, there were no professionally educated staff, so everyone dealt with radiology, mostly surgeons and internists.

Today’s CROATIAN SOCIETY OF RADIOLOGISTS (HDR) – Croatian Society of Radiology (CSR) is one of over 120 professional societies of the Croatian Medical Association. It was founded as the Society of Radiology (1928), changing its name to the Section of Radiology, Electrophysiology and Balneology (1935), the Section of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine (1945) and the Section of Radiology (1984).

With the independence of Croatia (1991) and the severance of ties with the Association of Medical Societies of Yugoslavia, the former Croatian Medical Association (ZLH) – returned its original name to the Croatian Medical Association (HLZ) – Croatian Medical Association (CroMA) and met the conditions for direct membership in the World Medical Association – WMA (1992). This gave the former Section of Radiology the right to change its name to the CROATIAN SOCIETY OF RADIOLOGISTS (1992), after which the ties with the Association of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine of Yugoslavia were severed, thus satisfying the conditions for direct membership in the European Association of Radiology – EAR (1993). and International Society of Radiology – ISR (1994).

According to the Statute of HLZ and the Rules of Procedure of HDR, the Association and the Society take care of improving the protection of public health, professional and scientific work, nurturing medical ethics, protection of class interests, developing cooperation with scientific and professional institutions, proposing measures to improve work organization. and others.

International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU)
The International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU) was established in 1925 by the International Congress of Radiology. Since its inception, it has had as its principal objective the development of internationally acceptable recommendations regarding (1) quantities and units of radiation and radioactivity; (2) procedures suitable for the measurement and application of these quantities in diagnostic radiology, radiation therapy, radiation biology, and industrial situation; and (3) physical data needed in the application of these procedures, the use of which tends to assure uniformity in reporting. The ICRU endeavors to collect and evaluate the latest data and information pertinent to the problems of radiation measurement and dosimetry, and to recommend in its publications the most acceptable values and techniques for current use.

International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists (ISRRT)
The ISRRT is an organization composed of seventy-one national radiographic societies from sixty-eight countries representing more than 200,000 radiographers and radiological technologists.

WFPI – The World Federation of Pediatric Imaging
In 2011, the leaders of the world’s regional pediatric imaging societies launched the World Federation of Pediatric Imaging (WFPI), a non-political, non-denominational and non-discriminatory organization operating for exclusively non-profit, educational, scientific, research and outreach purposes. By 2012, after extensive cross-regional consultation, two firmly held convictions – the need for a louder pediatric voice in the imaging arena, and strength lies in numbers – led to a mission statement: “WFPI provides an international platform for pediatric radiology organizations united to address the challenges in global pediatric imaging training and the delivery of services.” Setting up its governing body in 2012, WFPI went on to prioritize “Communication and collaboration between pediatric imaging practitioners, via their organizations” in its initial Strategic Framework (2012-20156 ) to achieve its goals. With limited resources and a loose working mandate, WFPI set about carving its niche, drawing heavily on those among its members with developing world experience.

In 2016, after a review of its first five years, WFPI incorporated the priorities and concerns expressed by its membership into its working priorities and planned development, as expressed in this revised Strategic Framework (2016 – 2021).
