The ESR and EFRS have joined efforts in various European Commission funded projects. Recently, the societies have jointly contributed as project coordinator or consortium member to the implementation of the below projects. New endeavours are continuously evaluated and pursued.

  • Evaluation of national actions regarding the transposition of Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom’s requirements in the medical sector - BSS Transposition (2016-2017)
  • European Diagnostic Reference Levels for Paediatric Imaging - PiDRL (2013-2016)
  • Referral Guidelines for Imaging (2011-2013)
  • Medical Radiation Protection Education and Training - A study on the implementation of the Medical Exposure Directive’s requirements within the European Union - MEDRAPET (2010-2013)

The EFRS is a shareholder organisation of the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR).

The European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research (EURAMED) is a joint initiative of EIBIR. The EFRS is represented in the alliance by Graciano Paulo.

Clinical Audit and the ESR Clinical Audit Tool

Clinical audit is inextricably linked to quality and, if correctly and professionally conducted, a powerful tool to improve patient care, experience and outcome. 

The ESR Clinical audit tool is designed to facilitate the development of local clinical audit across the spectrum of the services provided by clinical radiology and support radiology departments in establishing an developing their clinical audit programme.

The ESR Clinical Audit tool has been published under the name of Esperanto.

Further details are available here.
