ESR renews calls for the harmonisation of the radiology profession

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) has renewed its initiatives to adapt the EU legal framework governing the recognition of professional qualifications. The radiology community urges the European Commission and the Member States to increase the minimum duration of training for radiologists from four to five years, in compliance with the European Training Curriculum for Radiology, and change the name of the discipline from “Diagnostic Radiology” to “Radiology”, reflecting the profession’s current practice.
