The Lancet publishes summary of Honorary Lecture held by Marc Dewey at ECR 2018

On March 1, during the second day of the European Congress of Radiology 2018 (ECR), Professor Marc Dewey from Charité in Berlin, Germany, entered the stage and gave a well-received Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen honorary lecture titled ´Value-based radiology: the future is now!´.

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) is proud to announce that a summary of this visionary lecture has also been published as a letter in The Lancet today, which is not only a seal of approval for Prof. Dewey’s outstanding work and efforts in radiology in Europe but also for the quality of scientific lectures presented during the ECR each year.

The Lancet letter under the title, ´The future of radiology: adding value to clinical care´ lists three reasons why the practice of radiology needs to change in the future towards a more value-based approach.

The ESR congratulates Prof. Dewey on this great success and would recommend the letter to everyone interested in radiology.

The letter can be found here.
