October 2019

Vienna, October 29, 2019 (ESR) – To mark the International Day of Radiology (IDoR) 2019, the European Society of Radiology is publishing its biggest ever IDoR book, Imaging of Motion & Performance. Stress & Strain, focusing on sports imaging and the wider field of musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology.

Sports imaging, an emerging sub-field of musculoskeletal radiology that plays a crucial role in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of sports injuries, is the exciting theme of this year’s IDoR. As in previous years, the ESR has once again chosen to highlight the IDoR theme with a book, made available as a free PDF download at the official IDoR website, this time produced in cooperation with the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR).

The latest in the ESR’s popular series of annual IDoR books covers a huge range of topics across its 48 chapters, including a 10-chapter sequence that delves deep into the imaging of sports overuse and injury in various body regions. However, its editors have also taken the opportunity to offer up thorough explorations of many other aspects of MSK radiology, including imaging with different modalities, bone and soft tissue tumours, rheumatic and metabolic diseases, and diseases and tumours of the peripheral nerves.

“We are taking sports imaging as a starting point, but this book really provides a comprehensive guide, examining the full spectrum of MSK imaging. We believe that it can serve as a practical reference for physicians from all disciplines connected with sports imaging and MSK imaging in general, such as orthopaedists, surgeons and physiotherapists,” said ESSR president Dr. Alberto Vieira from CUF Porto Hospital and Porto University Medical School, who served as one of the book’s editors, along with Dr. Luca Maria Sconfienza from University of Milano School of Medicine and Dr. Franz Kainberger from the University of Vienna.

The International Day of Radiology takes place every November 8, the day that Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the existence of x-rays in 1895. The organisers (the ESR, along with its American counterparts the Radiological Society of North America and the American College of Radiology) hope to alert the world to the medical, scientific and artistic possibilities of medical imaging, the essential role of imaging professionals within healthcare teams, and the high educational and professional standards required of all staff working in medical imaging.
