The Global Summit on Radiological Quality and Safety (GSRQS) was conceived and developed by the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) to provide a robust exchange of ideas, concerns and potential solutions to quality and safety issues in diagnostic radiology. It has been held biannually since 2013 bringing together experts from multiple organisations worldwide for a two-day summit dedicated to advancing the practice of diagnostic radiology.
The ESR Action Plan for Medical Imaging was launched at the European Parliament in Brussels on November 4, 2014 at an event hosted by Elisabeth Morin-Chartier, Quaestor of the European Parliament.
This roundtable event hosted by Biljana Borzan, MEP, on 'The role of Radiology/Imaging in Personalised Medicine: How to provide the right prevention and treatment to the right patient at the right time?' was held at the European Parliament, Brussels on October 15, 2013. It provided an insight into the crucial role of imaging in the era of personalised medicine, frequently undervalued by policy makers, and showcased the potential and needs of imaging research with regard to multi-disciplinary European collaboration in the context of Horizon 2020 in order to benefit Europe’s patients and to address the current societal challenges.
