The eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology is a project developed by the Education Committee and the Undergraduate Education Subcommittee of the ESR.

The eBook is envisioned as a teaching material for medical students, residents in their first year(s) of training, as well as academic teachers throughout Europe to be able to understand and teach radiology as a whole coherent discipline. The document consists of individual chapters covering main subareas of radiology with the content for each chapter provided by the foremost European experts in that specific field.
