Once again, 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.
If you are looking for ways to celebrate IDoR 2016, you can find numerous suggestions on the American College of Radiology website, along with downloadable and customisable resources for print and online use. Various IDoR-related promotional materials, scientific articles, and education resources are also available from the Radiological Society of North America website.
IDoR 2016 Cake Competition
If you’re having a celebration at your institution this year, be sure to make a cake AND take photos, because the European Society of Radiology is holding an online cake competition! The cakes will be judged on looks and originality, and the winner will receive a prize of free registration for the European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2017), plus hotel accommodation.

International Day of Radiology
November 8 is the International Day of Radiology and this year the day is dedicated to breast imaging and the essential role that radiology plays in the detection, diagnosis and management of diseases of the breast.
The initiative is therefore also supported by the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI) and the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI). Both organisations will actively participate in various IDoR activities to help stress the significance of our specialty in breast healthcare.
The involvement of the radiation protection campaigns EuroSafe Imaging and Image Wisely reflects another key objective of the organisers, i.e. to raise awareness of the necessity of using appropriate radiation doses in medical imaging.
Last year more than 140 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
