On November 8, medical imaging professionals from across the world will celebrate the 11th International Day of Radiology (IDoR 2022). We encourage all radiologists, radiographers, radiological technologists, professionals in other related fields and patient groups to join together on this day to recognise and promote the essential role that radiology plays in the patient journey.
As always, the International Day of Radiology will take place on November 8 with the aim of building greater awareness of the value that radiology contributes to safe patient care and improving public understanding of the vital role radiologists and radiographers play in the healthcare continuum.
We will acknowledge the critical role that radiology plays to help ensure earlier detection, fewer surgeries, and improved treatment outcomes for patients. On November 8, we take an opportunity to promote these benefits amongst our colleagues in healthcare and the public at large.
To help support these efforts, we ask imaging professionals worldwide to pause for a moment, look back at their hard work and recognise the important contributions of radiology in the active care of patients.
We also cordially invite individuals and organisations (national radiological societies, radiological subspecialty societies, radiographer societies & allied sciences societies, imaging departments, patient groups etc.) throughout the world to share impressions of their day as they celebrate IDoR 2022:
- We invite you to send us photos of you and your colleagues celebrating IDoR 2022 at your workplace. To share your photos either send them to us at IDoR@myesr.org> (together with a brief description) or post them on your social media accounts with the hashtag #IDoR2022.
Alongside these activities, we encourage all radiologists and radiographers to amplify the visibility of medical imaging on November 8, by being particularly active on social media and remembering to use the hashtag #IDoR2022. Our favourite photos, tweets and posts from the day will be shared on our ESR social media channels.
