International Day of Radiology

The sixth annual International Day of Radiology (IDoR), Nov. 8, 2017, will focus on emergency radiology and the essential role that radiologists play in the emergency room, increasing the quality of care and treatment of patients.

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.

 IDoR 2017 will include celebrations during National Radiologic Technology Week (Nov. 5–11).

Nov. 8, 2017, marks the 122nd anniversary of the 1895 discovery of the X-ray by German physicist Wilhelm Röntgen.
