As it seeks to expand its digital educational offerings, the European Society of Radiology (ESR) has seen another significant increase in its membership in recent months, with now over 112,000 members worldwide.

The growth in members comes at a time when the ESR is increasingly engaging with the imaging community using digital technology to provide more educational resources and content. This includes broadcasting a larger number of its events online, such as the recent European School of Radiology (ESOR) event on artificial intelligence which was a smashing success with over 1,000 viewers having since tuned in to watch on demand. The ESR has also committed itself to providing an ever-increasing variety of online educational and informative content through platforms such as ESR Connect, Eurorad and the all new ESR AI Blog. As always, members of the ESR can take advantage of a number of exclusive benefits, including reduced registration fees to the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2020, access to the society’s three journals, and the opportunity to sign up for ESOR courses and the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR).

ESR Chairman of the Board of Directors, Prof. Lorenzo Derchi, expressed delight at the society’s membership growth; “We now have members from 182 countries making our society a diverse and uniting force for radiology throughout the world! This diversity as a society will help us to improve our field together, allowing us to educate and build relationships with an increasing number of radiologists, radiographers, hospitals and national societies”.

The European Society of Radiology is the largest radiological society in the world. It is an apolitical, non-profit organisation, dedicated to promoting and coordinating the scientific, philanthropic, intellectual and professional activities of radiology in all European countries.
