November 8, 2015 – the 120th anniversary of the X-ray
The International Day
of Radiology is building greater awareness of the value that radiology
research, diagnosis and treatment contribute to safe patient care, and better
understanding of the vital role radiologists perform in healthcare delivery.
This year the day is dedicated
to pediatric radiology, recognizing the role of imaging in the detection,
diagnosis and management of a wide variety of diseases affecting children. We
are proud to be joined by the Society for
Pediatric Radiology (SPR), World Federation of Pediatric Imaging (WFPI),
of Pediatric Radiology (ESPR) and the Image Gently® Campaign in recognizing the
valuable contributions radiology has made in pediatric care.
As a member of the
radiology community, you and your local radiology organizations and
institutions can help support this important recognition of the contributions
radiology has made to patient healthcare delivery and safety.
Use the resources from
this toolkit to promote IDoR in your local community, and visit the official
IDoR website (www.IDoR2015.com) to learn more.
