International Day of Radiology

November 8 is the International Day of Radiology and this year the day is dedicated to emergency radiology and the essential role that radiologists play in the emergency room, increasing the quality of care and treatment of patients.

Last year more than 150 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 societies will hold a range of different events to celebrate the day, which you will be able to find on the activities page. If you hear about any events taking place in your area to mark the occasion then please let us know at



In 2016 the European Society of Radiology has created a wonderful book to honour the International Day of Radiology (IDoR). ‘Screening & Beyond’ provides an amazing overview of breast imaging, with contributions from many of the world’s top breast radiologists.

The ESR has also conducted interviews with experts in breast imaging from seventeen European countries, and with specialists from Australia, Latin America, South Africa and the United States, providing an overview of the status quo of screening and treatments in these regions.
