Michel Claudon (1953 - 2018)

The ESR is saddened to announce the passing of Prof. Michel Claudon, after a long battle with illness, at the age of 65.

Prof. Claudon served the ESR in various capacities, as Chair of the ESR Working Group on Ultrasound from March 2015 to 2018, and as a member of the ESR Education Committee Board, the ESR Subspecialties & Allied Sciences Committee, and the former EU Affairs Subcommittee, which he also chaired.

Widely renowned for his expertise in ultrasound, Prof. Claudon was a regular speaker on the subject at the ECR and was highly respected throughout the entire ESR as an outstanding radiologist and esteemed colleague. He also served as president of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology from 2012 to 2014.

He will be missed by all at the ESR.
