ESR iGuide – the right decision for your patients

ESR iGuide is a clinical decision support system for European imaging referral guidelines developed by the European Society of Radiology (ESR) in collaboration with the American College of Radiology (ACR). It follows an evidence-based approach, enhancing patient safety and service quality by promoting appropriate imaging use and reducing unnecessary exams.

ESR iGuide is distributed exclusively by the ESR’s affiliate, Quality and Safety in Imaging (QSI) GmbH, delivering evidence-based clinical decision support directly into clinical workflows.

EUROSAFE IMAGING – putting patient safety first

EuroSafe Imaging is the European Society of Radiology’s flagship initiative to promote quality and safety in medical imaging. The mission of EuroSafe Imaging is to support and strengthen medical radiation protection across Europe following a holistic, inclusive approach.
