Discover ESR iGuide at ECR 2018

ESR iGuide is a clinical decision support system using imaging referral guidelines developed by the European Society of Radiology (ESR) in cooperation with the American College of Radiology (ACR), based on the ACR Appropriateness Criteria.

To ensure the ESR's guidelines for appropriate imaging are as widely available as possible, the ESR and its licensing partner, National Decision Support Company (NDSC), are launching a new stand-alone web portal at ECR 2018. The portal is a free service for all ESR radiologist members worldwide, and other individuals can register for the portal and use it free of charge until September 30, 2018. Thereafter, individual subscription options are available from NDSC.

The ESR iGuide portal includes the ESR's guidelines for over 1,800 clinical indications and scenarios, and provides users with two workflow options, indication-driven and modality-driven. After its official launch on March 1, ESR radiologist members can access the ESR iGuide portal via the MyUserArea, while all other individuals are encouraged to sign up for free at www.esriguide.org.
