International Day of Radiology

The third annual International Day of Radiology (IDoR), Nov. 8, 2014, will focus on brain imaging, which plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of brain disease and injuries. IDoR also recognizes the important role radiation therapy plays in treating some diseases of the brain, such as cancer.

IDoR joint sponsors — the American College of Radiology, the Radiological Society of North America and the European Society of Radiology — will host international activities to mark the event, together with more than 100 medical societies in 57 countries.

Nov. 8, 2014, also marks the 119th anniversary of the 1895 discovery of the X-ray by German physicist Wilhelm Röntgen.

Join us as we recognize radiology’s role in diagnosing and treating brain disease and injuries!
