Prepared by the <a href="http://myesr.org/about/organisation/executive-council/value-based-imaging-working-group">ESR Value-Based Imaging Working Group</a> (VBI WG), led by its chair and current ESR 2nd Vice-President Prof. Lorenzo Derchi, the paper sets out the ESR's position on value-based trends in healthcare in general, and radiology in particular.</p> <p>Established in August 2016, the VBI WG was tasked by the ESR's Board of Directors with leading the ESR's response to trends within healthcare that increasingly emphasise value-based aspects in relation to quality of care, patient safety and reimbursement systems. Within radiology, the issue of volume-based vs. value-based practice has been debated for a number of years, and with this paper, the ESR seeks to make a contribution to the discussion on this important issue and move it to the next level.</p> <p>The ESR sees value-based radiology as an emerging paradigm that complements and enhaces its existing approach to quality and safety, but puts a premium on focusing on what actually matters most to professionals, patients and payers. Determining what has the greatest impact, and how to develop metrics to demonstrate this impact, is the central question of value-based radiology.</p> <p>Value-based healthcare concepts focus on 'outcomes' as the cornerstone for evaluating healthcare processes, cost effectiveness and healthcare professionals' performance. What has been lacking so far is the inclusion of the diagnostic process, which constitutes the integral first part of any care cycle. The ESR argues that the diagnosis should be recognised as the first 'outcome'.</p> <p>Having established a radiologist's diagnosis as an outcome, the paper goes on to illustrate radiology's multifaceted value, and to introduce a number of metrics that can be developed based on this premise.</p> <p>The discussion on value-based radiology is just starting, and we hope that radiologists in Europe will actively engage in this debate to keep our profession at the forefront of healthcare in the 21st century.</p> <p>The ESR concept paper on value-based radiology, published online in <em>Insights into Imaging</em> on August 30, 2017, is available <a href="https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s13244-017-0566-1?wt_mc=Internal.Event.1.SEM.ArticleAuthorOnlineFirst"><u>here</u></a>.</p> <p>If you have any feedback on the ESR's VBR paper or suggestions for the VBI WG, please contact the <a href="mailto:eu-affairs@myesr.org"><u>ESR EU Affairs Department</u></a>.</p> <p class="text-xs-center"> <a class="btn btn-lg btn-icon" href="https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s13244-017-0566-1?wt_mc=Internal.Event.1.SEM.ArticleAuthorOnlineFirst" target="_blank" > <i class="pe-7s-link"></i> ESR VBR concept paper </a> </p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_650x650/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=GJOZv_0F 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_650x650/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=GJOZv_0F 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg" alt="EU &amp; International Affairs" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://www.myesr.org/article/1141" data-a2a-title="ESR News September 2017 - EU Affairs"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a> <a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> Mon, 04 Sep 2017 09:11:51 +0000 moderator_Florian 1141 at http://www.myesr.org ESR News September 2017 - EU Affairs http://www.myesr.org/article/1140 <span property="schema:name">ESR News September 2017 - EU Affairs</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/64" lang="" about="/user/64" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">moderator_Florian</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2017-09-04T08:17:30+00:00">Mon, 09/04/2017 - 10:17</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>ESOR-ESHI-IAEA Course</strong></p> <p>As part of the <a href="http://myesr.org/article/1025">practical arrangement</a> between the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (<a href="https://www.iaea.org/">IAEA</a>), 12 participants sponsored by the ESR and the IAEA participated in the European School of Radiology (<a href="http://esor.org/cms/website.php">ESOR</a>) Asklepios Course ‘<a href="http://esor.org/cms/website.php?id=/en/programmes/asklepios_courses/asklepios_courses/hybrid_imaging.htm">Introduction to Hybrid Imaging in Oncology</a>’, organised in cooperation with the European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging (<a href="http://eshi-society.org/">ESHI</a>) from August 31-September 1 in Vienna, Austria.</p> <p>The participation of radiologists from IAEA members states was organised together with the IAEA's Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging (NMDI) Section.

European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging (<a href="http://eshi-society.org/">ESHI</a>) from August 31-September 1 in Vienna, Austria.</p> <p>This ESOR course marks the first major cooperative activity in the area of education following the signing of the <a href="http://myesr.org/article/1025">practical arrangement</a> between the ESR and the IAEA on February 28, 2017. Facilitated by the IAEA's Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging Section, this agreement is the first of its kind between the IAEA and an international imaging society. The organisations’ priorities for this arrangement are capacity building and education, focusing primarily on middle and lower income countries.</p> <p>The Asklepios Course 'Introduction to Hybrid Imaging in Oncology' is part of the ESR and ESOR’s effort to support young radiologists, oncologists and nuclear medicine physicians in their specialty training as well as to aid recently board-certified radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians by fully subsidising this unique ESOR course and enabling participants to learn more about hybrid medical imaging. Through the ESR’s cooperation with the IAEA, this support was extended to participants from selected IAEA member states.</p> <p>The course is aimed at final-year residents, general radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and oncologists who want to update their knowledge on new applications and state-of-the-art hybrid medical imaging of cancer. No previous practical experience of the subject is required. The expert faculty comprises nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who will provide a series of lectures describing optimal imaging pathways for oncological diagnosis, follow-up and response assessment. Lectures will be followed by interactive workshops, presented jointly by faculty specialists.</p> </div> </div> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-6"> <div> <i

<div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p>Read this month’s EU Affairs update on the <strong>EU’s new regulation on medical devices</strong> and the <strong>ESR’s paper on the General Data Protection Regulation</strong>.</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>Medical Devices Regulation</strong></p> <p>The April 5 plenary vote in the European Parliament on the regulations for medical devices and in-vitro medical devices was the final step in a major overhaul of the regulatory environment for medical devices in Europe. Replacing the 1990 directive on active implantable medical devices and the 1993 directive on medical devices, the medical devices regulation (MDR) is intended to enhance the safety of medical devices for patients in Europe while retaining the competitiveness of the European medical device market. The revisions affect all types of devices, from home-use items like sticking plasters or pregnancy tests to diagnostic imaging equipment or pacemakers.</p> <p>The legislative process started with a public consultation in 2008, followed by the publication of the European Commission’s legislative proposals in 2012. During protracted negotiations within and between the EU institutions, the final consensus eventually emerged: retaining the decentralised character market authorisation while enhancing patient safety by strengthening oversight of notified bodies, stricter requirements especially for high-risk devices, or new rules for traceability of devices and incident reporting.</p> <p>The technical documentation required for market authorisation is more detailed in the new MDR, and it includes a new requirement of periodic updates that must take post-market surveillance data into account. Each device must have a unique device identification number for traceability, new classification rules are introduced, and the requirements for re-using single use devices were strengthened. The new regulation also includes specific rules for software as a medical device, accounting for the significant developments in this area in the past 20 years. Notified bodies were empowered to conduct unannounced factory inspections, and for high risk devices notified bodies are to seek advice from an expert panel designated by the European Commission. In addition, a pre-market scrutiny procedure is introduced for certain types of high-risk devices through which national competent authorities can review checks carried out by notified bodies and verify technical documentation. This move was criticised by some industry groups for the potential duplication of work for manufacturers.</p> <p>Throughout the legislative process, the ESR <u><a href="http://myesr.org/sites/default/files/ESR_position_on_medical_devices_regulation_Nov.%202013.pdf">advocated</a></u> for a balanced approach centred on patient safety, while safeguarding an efficient regulatory system that ensures timely access to new and innovative technologies.</p> <p>The new regulations were welcomed by industry groups <u><a href="http://medtecheurope.cmail20.com/t/ViewEmail/r/373336C0DB2DF62E2540EF23F30FEDED/32C114A2669A79DAEBAD456BEB5F1DD6">MedTech Europe</a></u> and <u><a href="http://www.cocir.org/media-centre/press-releases/article/medical-device-regulation-adopted-1.html">COCIR</a></u>, as well as stakeholders like the <u><a href="http://www.cardiomyopathy.org/news--media/latest-news/post/229-new-rules-on-medical-devices-welcomed-by-cardiologists">European Society of Cardiology</a></u> or the <u><a href="http://www.eu-patient.eu/News/News/safer-and-more-controlled-devices-a-victory-for-patient-safety/">European Patients’ Forum</a></u>.</p> <p>The MDR will apply after a transition period of three years, while new rules for in-vitro medical devices apply five years after publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

The goal of the ESR-PAG is to bring together patients, the public, and imaging professionals in order to positively influence advances in the field of medical imaging to the benefit of patients in Europe.</p> <p>The ESR-PAG is co-chaired by Nicola Bedlington, Secretary General of the European Patient’s Forum (EPF) and Michael Fuchsjäger, chair of the ESR Communication and External Affairs Committee, and includes members from several disease-specific patient groups, namely European Federation of Crohn’s Ulcerative Colitis Association (EFCCA), European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA), European Prostate Cancer Coalition (Europa Uomo), Pelvic Pain Support Network (PPSN) and the Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE). In addition to these patient organisations and the ESR, the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) is also a member of the ESR-PAG.</p> <p>The <strong>European Congress of Radiology</strong> (ECR) held in <strong>Vienna</strong> from <strong>1-5 March 2017</strong> again provided a platform for patients and professionals to discuss strategies for improved patient safety and quality of care in clinical radiology and to present the way forward in developing personalised medicine focusing on big data and data management.</p> <p>The ECR 2017 featured two well-attended sessions organised by the <strong>ESR-PAG</strong> which enjoyed high interest by the congress delegates and featured lively discussions between panellists and the audience. In addition, the ESR-PAG launched its first <a href="http://myesr.org/sites/default/files/ESR-PAG-leaflet-web.pdf">leaflet</a> at ECR. The <a href="http://www.eurosafeimaging.org/">EuroSafe Imaging</a> Café themed “Together for Patient Safety” was a popular place for meeting and networking. Plenty of material on EuroSafe Imaging’s activities including information on the ESR-PAG were distributed to all visitors to raise awareness and to promote quality and safety in medical imaging for the benefit of patients.</p> <p>The session on “<strong>Improving patient safety and quality of care in clinical radiology</strong>” focused on how to improve patient safety and quality of care through audit and standards and provided concrete examples of best practice on implementing these standards in the radiology department.</p> <p>To start with, <strong>Dr Barry Kelly</strong>, chair of the ESR Audit &amp; Standards subcommittee, presented memorably how audit works with the example “What percentage of male radiologists wear trousers at work?” and thus he explained that audit simply means “measuring anything against a standard”. Thereafter, he focused on the “doctor in difficulty” and the “doctor as a patient” making clear that “<em>we only see the tip of the iceberg which is the behaviour, but not the underlying influencing factors, like health problems, workload, private issues, working culture, training and education among others</em>”.</p> <p><strong>Donna Walsh</strong>, Executive Director of the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA), pointed out that “<em>communication is the corner stone of patient satisfy and safety</em>”. She noted that written communication in the form of reports, which have traditionally been exchanged between doctors only, have to be adjusted to reflect the need for patient empowerment so that understanding findings does not require an advanced medical background. </p> <p><strong>Erik Briers</strong>, speaking on behalf of the European Prostate Cancer Coalition (Europa Uomo), focused on the patient journey through the department. He pointed out that radiology departments should have general and specific information in different levels of literacy available and they should define basic procedures on how to handle questions from patients and next of kin to help patients overcome fear.</p> <p>To complete the session, <strong>Dr Dominique Carrié</strong>, a radiologist from Toulouse, France, presented the patient satisfaction questionnaire prepared by the ESR-PAG. He pointed out that “<em>if we wish to practice radiology close to the patient, then it is necessary to evaluate their needs and concerns</em>”.</p> <p>The second session was organised around the topic “<strong>Big data – data management, standardisation, access and protection</strong>” to understand the importance for personalised medicine in radiology.</p> <p>First, <strong>Prof. Peter Mildenberger</strong>, chair of the ESR Professional Issues and Economics in Radiology Subcommittee, provided an overview of European developments. He pointed out that new developments in medical imaging provide new opportunities, but also generate a lot of different data, which require more sophisticated work than conventional x-ray or CT.</p> <p><strong>Nicola Bedlington</strong>, Secretary General of the European Patient’s Forum (EPF) and co-chair of the ESR-PAG, presented the patient perspective on big data and noted that there is an increasing drive to improve collection and use of patients’ data in order to achieve better, more sustainable healthcare and advance health research. She highlighted that “<em>the only way to do this in a meaningful and valuable way is together with patients</em>”.</p> <p><strong>Erik Briers</strong> pointed out that data collection is in the interest of patients, as they want better care and quality of life for themselves and future patients, and data sharing contributes to personalised care and precision medicine. However, quality of data is a problem and standardisation is absolutely needed.</p> <p><strong>Prof. James Brink</strong>, chair of the American College of Radiology’s Board of Chancellors, concluded the session with a US example. He pointed out that international image sharing networks with robust, clean image data sets are needed to enable research in image data science and subsequent clinical application. Thereafter he focused on decision support for radiologists. He clearly noted that “<em>i</em><em>f all radiologists apply the same algorithms to the same imaging scenarios, then variation in radiologists’ reports will be reduced</em>”.</p> <p>If you want to listen to the <strong>recorded ESR-PAG sessions</strong> visit <a href="http://ecronline.myesr.org/ecr2017/?p=elasearch&amp;t=browsesessions&amp;fulltext=esr-pag" target="_blank">ECR Online</a> (access is free of charge, but pre-registration is required).</p> <p></p> <p></p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=d-ZgclW6 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_650x650/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=GJOZv_0F 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_650x650/public/2016-10/affairs.jpg?itok=GJOZv_0F 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/2016-10/affairs.jpg" alt="EU &amp; International Affairs" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://www.myesr.org/article/1067" data-a2a-title="ESR@Work May 2017 - It&#039;s all about the patient"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a> <a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> Wed, 10 May 2017 08:24:02 +0000 moderator_Florian 1067 at http://www.myesr.org Deutscher Röntgenkongress 2017 - ESR iGuide http://www.myesr.org/article/1069 <span property="schema:name">Deutscher Röntgenkongress 2017 - ESR iGuide</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/64" lang="" about="/user/64" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">moderator_Florian</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2017-05-03T09:14:49+00:00">Wed, 05/03/2017 - 11:14</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p>ESR iGuide ist ein klinisches Entscheidungshilfesystem (<em>clinical decision support </em>– CDS) für europäische Leitlinien für die Zuweisung für bildgebende Verfahren in der Medizin, entwickelt von der European Society of Radiology (ESR) und National Decision Support Company (NDSC).</p> <p>Durch die Kombination der medizinischen Expertise der ESR und des bewährten CDS Systems von NDSC ermöglicht ESR iGuide eine effiziente, nachvollziehbare und zuverlässige Entscheidungshilfe um Ärzte in der klinischen Praxis bei der Auswahl der angemessensten bildgebenden Verfahren zu unterstützen.

Dadurch gibt ESR iGuide Patienten die Sicherheit, dass sie die beste radiologische Gesundheitsversorgung erhalten.</p> <p>Nachdem eine von der ESR koordinierte Studie der Europäischen Kommission ergab, dass Zuweisungsleitlinien in Europa kaum verwendet werden, hat die ESR ein Projekt zur Einführung von nutzerfreundlichen Leitlinien in einem CDS System gestartet, und arbeitet seit 2014 mit dem American College of Radiology (ACR) und NDSC zusammen. Seit 2016 sind <em>Appropriateness Criteria </em>des ACR in von der ESR adaptierter Form auch in Europa verfügbar. Ein gemeinsames Rapid Response Team aktualisiert die Leitlinien laufend. NDSC wurde von der ESR mit dem Vertrieb der Leitlinien in Europa beauftragt, und nimmt alle kommerziellen und technischen Aufgaben wahr.</p> <p>Die ersten Pilotprojekte von ESR iGuide werden seit 2016 von NDSC Europe betreut, unter anderem in vier Spitälern in Kroatien, der Region Jönköping in Schweden, in Irland, Spanien, Deutschland und Katar. Vorläufige Resultate aus Kroatien zeigen, dass bis zu einem Viertel der Anforderungen nicht leitlinienkonform sind. Durch die Nutzung von ESR iGuide wurden bis zu drei Prozent der nicht angemessenen Zuweisungen storniert, und in bis zu fünf Prozent der Fälle wurde ein besser bewertetes Verfahren ausgewählt. Durch bessere Schulung der Nutzer sollen diese Ergebnisse in Zukunft noch verbessert werden.</p> <p>Mehr Informationen zu ESR iGuide finden Sie <a href="http://myesr.org/quality-safety/esr-iguide">online</a>, oder <strong>besuchen Sie uns am Stand der ESR</strong> am Deutschen Röntgenkongress vom 24.-27.

It will not only elevate the organisations’ longstanding relations to a more formal level, but also open up countless opportunities in the field of medical imaging. Commenting on the mutually beneficial relations, Aldo Malavasi said that “signing this important practical arrangement today with the European Society of Radiology marks the longstanding relationship of two organisations dedicated to support efforts globally in the field of medical imaging and thereby better serving our Member States”.</p> <div> <i class="rectangle"> <article class="media media-medium-image view-mode-image-rectangle"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2017-03/ESR-IAEA-PA-2-small.jpg?itok=vAIJyKhR 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2017-03/ESR-IAEA-PA-2-small.jpg?itok=vAIJyKhR 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2017-03/ESR-IAEA-PA-2-small.jpg?itok=vAIJyKhR 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2017-03/ESR-IAEA-PA-2-small.jpg?itok=vAIJyKhR 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2017-03/ESR-IAEA-PA-2-small.jpg?itok=vAIJyKhR 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2017-03/ESR-IAEA-PA-2-small.jpg?itok=vAIJyKhR 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2017-03/ESR-IAEA-PA-2-small.jpg?itok=vAIJyKhR" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </article> </i> </div> </div> </div> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p>The agreement focuses on capacity building and education, with both organisations committing to engage not only radiologists, but a wider audience, including referring physicians. Planned activities include a series of webinars, sponsored participation in ESR-organised training courses for healthcare professionals from low and middle income countries, and the development of e-learning materials. The booming field of hybrid imaging and the resulting need for training in PET-CT and PET-MR will be a particular focus, with dedicated webinars coordinated by the recently established European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging (ESHI).</p> <p>Welcoming the agreement, Prof. Riklund stated that “the IAEA-ESR practical arrangement represents a major milestone in the ESR’s engagement with international organisations, and it is a result of years of diligent work to establish the ESR as an active and credible stakeholder in healthcare policy at the international level. With a strong educational programme at the heart of the society’s mission and an ever-growing global membership, this practical arrangement plays to our strengths while also opening up new horizons”.</p> <p>Over a number of years, the ESR has established a productive working relationship with different departments within the IAEA, in particular its Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging Section, on issues of common interest such as education and training through expert-level participation in IAEA scientific conferences and technical meetings, the <em>International Basic Safety Standards for Protection Against Ionising Radiation</em>, as well as contributions to relevant publications. In 2014, the ESR was the first medical society to answer the IAEA’s <em>Bonn Call for Action</em> by launching the EuroSafe Imaging radiation protection campaign, committing to specific actions in each of the priority areas set out in the Bonn call.</p> <p>In recognition of the role non-governmental stakeholders play for the IAEA, Diana Paez, Head of the Diagnostic Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Section, affirmed “the IAEA’s continuous cooperation with major professional organisations such as the European Society of Radiology as instrumental to increasing the support we provide to Member States in the field of diagnostic imaging. Today’s agreement will pave the way for a vast global outreach and bring us closer to our mandate to support the diverse needs of our Member States in the field of radiology, tailored to the countries’ respective needs”.</p> <p>“The ESR is pleased to see the IAEA strengthening its commitment to diagnostic imaging as part of its mission” added current ESR President and incoming ESR Chair Prof. Paul Parizel, “and we greatly look forward to continuing our work with the Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging Section within this new framework.
