The paper was written by representatives of the <a href="https://www.myesr.org/">European Society of Radiology (ESR)</a>, <a href="https://www.acr.org/">American College of Radiology (ACR)</a>, <a href="https://www.rsna.org/">Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)</a>, <a href="https://car.ca/?__cf_chl_captcha_tk__=24244092141faf9cc6869fb7c03b4c201b46e15f-1609748190-0-ARzJnTe2CB4OdRFlJ1vxrrPiWRKGuPqorEVHR87ItoUkiAjxmDAN4Uu4DMjTA0dvPI5x9Lqnzi5zVYk_C5Ymrzfrm94FtsyL2DowiZDmwy9OATltUL5Jv96AcLHtIrl33T4ow3E600KQh-Z2OGW6YNilQbSKm87Hf1t95og8HCB7Av2t6IpnVK2iaTZUFYw3hvpyrXV10uD9VmfWSzKcrTpI4-wS_ZDXNlyxCN5RzfkHevy7Q-LQGiE2S9OXa4P1gWyYCXDcdR6BBK35IxM_zDVb9QQvgbelE3mv7EDfw4ssGzlQU0ycb8wP5jxFdZtNRWJ1xVDYjcQByZQJgStAJVDehNWScuZXxUwmfAg0sZURyqcSj3C5YABXmip2pE9acn5mRleVUOWCc2kfy1uyyPlN9LH5dxUBA9HPI237Hc_kzmGa9hcRXNMUXhY5A3BFadn5JxtS4UzHNNTFQkLWChjUXNQN3hnaS5q3NSvC9HOgWdKmXKvMbAba0jPELnhCCfDnXUradUwDHrw7bjns-pkRoeze8LhBWawEU4olXhd69ZJkH6mKR2IORfinFL6WSU2OLeaD6TPyijKQUJDSP-o">Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR)</a>, <a href="https://www.ranzcr.com/">Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR)</a> and <a href="https://www.is3r.org/">International Society for Strategic Studies in Radiology (IS3R),</a> which, together represent hundreds of thousands of radiologists worldwide.</p> <p>Value-based healthcare (VBH) is a framework for improving individual patient health outcomes per unit of expenditure. Highlighting radiology as a key component of healthcare, which impacts greatly on patient outcomes, the authors of the paper argue that it must be considered a vital element of VBH.</p> <p>Adequate resourcing of radiology is required to maintain healthcare efficiency, and thus maximise value. Therefore, as part of the fundamental goal of enhancement of value for patients, radiology must be a component of any formula to assess costs against outcomes in healthcare. The calculation of value metrics, and resourcing decisions based on such calculations, must take account of the need to resource radiology adequately to maintain its value contribution.</p> <p>By embracing the principles of value-based healthcare, it is believed that radiology can contribute to moving to a value-driven system, where all investigations or interventions contribute positively to patient outcomes. The paper lays out nine steps that can be taken to support this endeavour. </p> <p>Amongst experts involved in the paper’s publication were ESR Past-President Prof. Lorenzo E.

Amongst the recently accredited centres is the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, one of Europe’s largest and most well-renowned university hospitals, which was awarded a Platinum certification. Joining it were Klinikum Wilhelmshaven in Germany, which was awarded a Silver certification, and Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden, which was awarded a Gold certification. </strong></p> <p>Despite the many challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused, ETAP 2.0 has still been able to provide certifications entirely virtually this year. The programme has striven to overcome pandemic’s barriers by offering virtual assessment of institutions. As a global programme ETAP 2.0 can provide evaluation of training programmes in any imaging institution in the world, making it easy for any institution to take part in the programme.</p> <p>Professor Bernd Hamm, Director of the Institute of Radiology at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin and former president of the ESR, was extremely positive about the accreditation of his centre and the necessity of the assessments ETAP 2.0 carries out: ‘Programme’s such as ETAP 2.0 are essential in setting standards for imaging training centres across the world. Our trainees are the future of imaging and it is paramount that we provide the best training possible to them – ETAP 2.0 helps to ensure this. I am extremely proud that Charité has been recognised for its outstanding training programme, which includes personalised monitoring and mentorship of trainees, specialised courses given by dedicated teaching staff and mandatory participation in multidisciplinary meetings and training’.</p> <p>Professor Laura Oleaga, Chair of the Radiology Department at Hospital Clínic Barcelona and former chair of the ESR Education Committee, who’s hospital was certified by ETAP 2.0 in 2019 added: ‘Finding ways to strengthen the reputation of our institution and achieve excellence in education are  ongoing goals of Hospital Clínic Barcelona. Certifications like ETAP 2.0 are hugely beneficial in helping us to achieve these goals. It allows us to assess our training programme which benefits not only the hospital but also all trainees and eventually the patients. Ultimately, it enables us to get the very best from our students by helping us to understand in what areas of medical training we excel and in what areas we can improve’.</p> <p>ETAP 2.0 ensures that your training department meets the quality of standards set by the ESR European Training Curriculum and the UEMS, giving visibility to its quality with European and international recognition. It further certifies that an institution’s training programme is effective and that its residents’ level of competence is high with Silver, Gold and Platinum certifications awarded to training institutions based on several methods of evaluation. The programme was set up by the <a href="https://www.myebr.org/">European Board of Radiology (EBR)</a> and <a href="https://www.uemsradiology.eu/">UEMS Section of Radiology</a>, with the support of the <a href="https://www.myesr.org/">European Society of Radiology (ESR)</a>.</p> <p>In efforts to continuously harmonise radiological standards, the EBR are currently offering a special promotion that combines the benefits of the European Diploma of Radiology (EDiR and ETAP 2.0. Radiology departments that commit themselves to having all their last year residents sit the EDiR examination will benefit from receiving free assessment of their radiology training programmes by ETAP 2.0.

Engagement on the day was at an all-time high with people from all over the world embracing the theme, which was dedicated this year to all imaging professionals and their essential role in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.</strong><br /> <br /> Due to the pandemic, this year saw people marking IDoR in new and innovative ways, acknowledging the contributions of imaging to the fight against COVID-19, whilst continuing to abide by the rules and restrictions that the disease poses. On social media, involvement was particularly high with several records broken. Companies, international and national societies, hospitals and individuals took to platforms to share posts and photos recognising the day. Celebrations ranged from imaging departments marking the day with IDoR banquets to creating photo series in which the difficulties of imaging COVID-19 patients were highlighted. Overall, there were more than 2,000 separate mentions of IDOR on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Instagram with over 4.4 million impressions of IDoR-related online activity. The ESR’s own Twitter posts had over 105,000 impressions with its reach on LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook also having grown significantly in comparison to IDoR 2019.<br /> <br /> Further online activity was recorded on <a href="https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmyesr.us16.list-manage.com%2Ftrack%2Fclick%3Fu%3Df0e155f988768a8aa22785eab%26id%3D5c8b8a5587%26e%3D5d1926846e&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7C1b7d159897754aa668f908d8861f6d27%7C74db0ebba2c64d6a8733c8974e9e3225%7C0%7C0%7C637406816844598912%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=dYZobcuEPUiaM6WCWSY5%2FA7bAIAMlmYnN20S%2Fv6deCw%3D&amp;reserved=0">ESR Connect</a>, where over 700 people registered for the special IDoR topic package, which included 39 lectures on imaging and COVID-19.

To date, over 140 reports have been received. They will be used to create a special e-book of experiences which will be freely available to access later this year, acting as a useful reminder of the crucial role imaging plays in diagnosing and treating patients with the disease.<br /> <br /> The International Day of Radiology is celebrated each year on November 8. It is a joint initiative of the ESR, Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) and is supported by numerous international and national radiology societies across the world. The aim of IDoR is to build greater awareness of the value that radiology contributes to safe patient care, and improving public understanding of the vital role radiologists and radiographers play in the healthcare continuum.</p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image force-fullsize"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=n6Xj-NB0 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=aYdWy1Y_ 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=aYdWy1Y_ 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=vhHQT3J9 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=vhHQT3J9 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=5cMWOtvd 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=5cMWOtvd" alt="MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.myesr.org/article/3302" data-a2a-title="International Day of Radiology 2020 breaks records as imaging professionals celebrate across the world"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></span> Wed, 11 Nov 2020 14:50:15 +0000 myESR 3302 at https://www.myesr.org Children in Focus to GO LIVE on ESR Connect next week during ECR 2020 Highlight Week https://www.myesr.org/article/3292 <span property="schema:name">Children in Focus to GO LIVE on ESR Connect next week during ECR 2020 Highlight Week</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">myESR</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2020-10-12T12:44:54+00:00">Mon, 10/12/2020 - 14:44</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>The </strong><a href="https://www.myesr.org/"><strong>European Society of Radiology (ESR)</strong></a><strong> is excited to be hosting the much-anticipated Children in Focus programme during the sixth ECR 2020 Highlight Week, taking place on October 20-21, 2020 on </strong><a href="https://connect.myesr.org/package/paediatric-children-in-focus/"><strong>ESR Connect</strong></a><strong>.

This is ten times higher than the average number of attendees at ESOR’s onsite courses, representing a fantastic record and highlighting the growing potential of online educational content that the school can offer. </strong></p> <p>The CME-accredited course was designed to update attendees’ knowledge on state-of-the-art MR imaging, including all aspects of liver, pancreas, GI and GU, as well as the pivotal role of MR in abdominal and pelvic disorders. The course saw a total of 9 speakers sharing their expertise with topics ranging from MR imaging of the spleen and prostate to imaging of Crohn’s disease and anorectal cancer. It was moderated by Prof. Patrick Chevallier from Nice, France. In a continuation of ESOR’s desire to promote audience interaction during all its courses, the opportunity to ask live questions was also available to viewers with a total of 100 questions and 2,500 poll votes posed throughout the event.</p> <p>ESOR was also pleased to see a growing diversity in the range of attendees participating in today’s course. There were registrations from 60 countries worldwide, a further testament to the potential of online courses to deliver education to areas where attendance to an onsite course would be impossible. ESOR will continue to expand its digital offerings in the future so that radiologists and other imaging professionals, not only from Europe but other parts of the world too, will be able to take advantage of its educational offerings.</p> <p>Today’s course was one of five day-long events that make up ESOR’s autumn course series. All courses are hosted exclusively on ESR Connect and discounts are available to all ESR members. Upcoming events will cover Neuroradiology (Sept 11), Cardiac MR Imaging (Sept 18), Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (Sept 25) and Urogenital Radiology (Oct 2).</p> <p>To register for a course, or find out more about their content and speakers, click <a href="https://connect.myesr.org/upcoming/">here</a>.  </p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image force-fullsize"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=n6Xj-NB0 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=aYdWy1Y_ 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=aYdWy1Y_ 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=vhHQT3J9 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=vhHQT3J9 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=5cMWOtvd 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=5cMWOtvd" alt="MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.myesr.org/article/3282" data-a2a-title="ESOR already setting records in very first course of its online autumn series"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></span> Mon, 07 Sep 2020 09:56:48 +0000 myESR 3282 at https://www.myesr.org Setting a new standard for medical meetings - ECR 2020 dazzles over 15,000 participants from across the world with outstanding online congress format https://www.myesr.org/article/3260 <span property="schema:name">Setting a new standard for medical meetings - ECR 2020 dazzles over 15,000 participants from across the world with outstanding online congress format</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">myESR</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2020-07-21T11:27:35+00:00">Tue, 07/21/2020 - 13:27</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>Tuesday, July 21 2020 - The European Society of Radiology (ESR) is proud to announce that ECR 2020 proved to be an outstanding success in overcoming COVID-19, attracting a record 15,265 professional delegates to its online sessions, an increase of 5% on the previous year. The online meeting saw viewers tuning in from over 130 countries across the world to participate in the society’s first ever online congress. With a vast mix of educational, scientific, interactive and industry-related content available for participants, this year’s ECR was truly a unique experience that sought to overcome the challenges posed by the pandemic and succeeded. </strong><br /> <br /> <strong>A congress packed with highlights</strong><br /> The congress featured many special highlights throughout the week. A phenomenal Opening Ceremony on Wednesday saw Chairman of the ESR Board of Directors and ECR 2020 Congress President, Prof. Boris Brkljačić, play host as he awarded exemplary members of the radiology community with Honorary Membership and Gold Medallist awards.<br /> <br /> Over the course of the week, attendees were treated to over 50 live sessions. From exciting plenary lectures and special focus sessions to state-of-the-art talks on COVID-19 and a special live stream dedicated to radiographers, there was educational content for all, with 28 CME credits available for participants. Over 2,000 people tuned in on Thursday morning to take part in a long-standing ECR tradition, the Imaging Interpretation Quiz, which was broadcasted live from Australia and hosted by former President of the ESR, Prof. Paul M. Parizel. And attendees experienced a charming and fitting end to the congress in the form of the Closing Ceremony with more delightful talks and music from the Vienna Boys’ Choir.  <br /> <br /> <strong>Congress innovations and opportunities</strong><br /> With the new online format came new opportunities for innovation. The Virtual Exhibition, which saw 216 companies in attendance, gave participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in an entirely digitalised expo centre. With a heavy focus on interactivity and usability, companies had the opportunity to demonstrate their products, host webinars and invite these attendees to visit their very own digital booths. Many industry partners also had the opportunity to inform and educate audiences through special satellite symposia, which ran throughout the course of last week.<br /> <br /> Another debut feature, which was made possible through the high-tech nature of the congress whilst demonstrating the promise and potential of a digital meeting, was the ESR Table Talks. Covering the more social and light-hearted side of the congress, Prof. Boris Brkljačić and Prof. Lorenzo Derchi hosted these talks directly from the House of European Radiology in the heart of Vienna. With over 25 special guests involved in the Table Talks, this new format provided attendees with the opportunity to ask questions to some of the big names in radiology and gain insights into numerous topics related to the field.<br /> <br /> <strong>Insights from the congress president </strong><br /> Prof. Boris Brkljačić, shared his thoughts on the online congress. ‘When we decided to convert ECR 2020 into an online-only congress, there was a lot of uncertainty about how this would look and whether it would still be possible to capture the magic of ECR in a digital format. After an incredible congress week, I am extremely pleased to say, there are no longer any doubts. ECR 2020 has been an outstanding event with so much interactivity and inclusivity from our attendees that truly kept the magic alive. The educational content at this year’s congress has been of an extremely high standard and, although I hope that we can all meet together in Vienna again soon, I think this congress has proved that online conference formats are possible and that the ESR has successfully set an industry standard with last week’s meeting. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this incredible meeting, from our programme planning committee and ESR staff to all congress speakers and, of course, all our attendees’.</p> <p><strong>ECR 2020 to continue until the end of the year</strong><br /> Although the central part of ECR 2020 took place last week, the congress will continue to educate and entertain attendees throughout the rest of the year through its special Highlight Weeks. In total, there will be ten ‘Highlight Weeks’, with each week exploring a set of carefully chosen topics. The first week, focussed on Artificial Intelligence, started on July 20 and includes a range of live and pre-recorded educational sessions, as well as company pitches. Also included is a premium event by the the European School of Radiology (ESOR), 'INTELLIGENCE. INNOVATION. IMAGING. AI IN ONCOLOGIC IMAGING', which is supported by Siemens Healthineers.

The rise of European Radiology beyond the important 4.0 mark, as well as the meteoric premiere of Insights into Imaging directly to the upper third of the ranking, underline the excellence of the ESR Journals and their important role in not only the European but global field of radiology.</strong></p> <p>The ESR Journal family comprises of three different scientific journals complementing each other in covering the broad spectrum of medical imaging. <em>European Radiology</em>, founded in 1991, focuses on original research in clinical radiology; <em>Insights into Imaging</em> was founded in 2010 with a strong focus on education as well as guidelines, strategic and professional issues; the youngest member, <em>European Radiology Experimental,</em> joined the ESR Journal family in 2017 and covers pre-clinical research and novel approaches in medical imaging. The family collaborates daily on an organizational and editorial level by holding regular editor meetings and offering direct article transfers in case another journal is more suited for publication of an article.</p> <p>As of now, the ESR Journal family includes two Impact Factor-ranked journals: as before, <em>European Radiology</em> leads with an Impact Factor 2019 of 4.101 (up from 3.962 in the previous year) and now ranking 21st in the category ‘Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Medical Imaging‘. <em>Insights into Imaging</em> received its first ever impact factor, an astounding 3.579, and is now ranked 28<sup>th</sup> in the category.</p> <p>“It is a long-waited reward for the hard work of all the voluntary reviewers to finally receive an Impact Factor; I am also honored to achieve such a great result and be included directly in the upper third of the entire ranking. This proves that we are on the right track, not only offering high quality educational material, but also offering critical perspective and reflecting on the things we do daily in our practice”, says <em>Insights into Imaging</em>’s Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Luis Martí-Bonmatí from Valencia, Spain.</p> <p>The JCR Impact Factor, released this week as “Impact Factor 2019” counting articles published in 2017 and 2018, and cited in 2019, is an important parameter for journals in the field of academic publishing. However, it is just one of many measures of journal performance and not a measure of research quality. This is why the ESR fully stands behind its publisher Springer Nature’s recent signature of the Declaration on Research Assessment (<a href="https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsfdora.org%2F&amp;data=01%7C01%7C%7C11545f3994f9465e449408d8087824a7%7C74db0ebba2c64d6a8733c8974e9e3225%7C0&amp;sdata=86yu1nAMHx%2FvSi%2BnvrnXtQn%2FwRPH7PLxr3FLyNE16dw%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">DORA</a>) in late May 2020, as it recognizes the need to improve the ways in which the outputs of scholarly research are evaluated. More information can be found <a href="https://www.springernature.com/gp/researchers/dora" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> <p>On this note, it is important to mention that downloads and social media interaction have also been increasing substantially over the past year: <em>European Radiology</em> articles have been accessed 945,000 times in 2019 (+18%), <em>Insights into</em> <em>Imaging</em> articles 770,000 times (+64%) and <em>European Radiology Experimental</em> 83,000 (+49%), showing that the journals are an important and integral part of the radiologic community.</p> <p>“Obviously this achievement is a team effort”, underlines Prof. Yves Menu from Paris, France, Editor-in-Chief of <em>European Radiology</em>, and sends his sincere words of thanks to the reviewers and editors who all dedicate their time and expertise to the journal. The continuing increasing trend in submissions (+10% from 2018 to 2019 and continued in a huge increase of +50% in the first half of 2020), social media interactions, and downloads, as well as the growing <em>European R</em>adiology editorial team – now consisting of deputy editors, junior deputy editors and review fellows – shows that the journal is truly a community affair, which cannot and should not be measured by a single parameter. “To see all these aspects of our journal activities growing, it makes me very proud being a part of this unique family”, he adds.</p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image force-fullsize"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=n6Xj-NB0 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=aYdWy1Y_ 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=aYdWy1Y_ 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=vhHQT3J9 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=vhHQT3J9 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=5cMWOtvd 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2018-06/MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg?itok=5cMWOtvd" alt="MYESR_PageBanner6_web.jpg" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.myesr.org/article/3242" data-a2a-title="New IMPACT FACTORS are here for the ESR Journals!"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></span> Wed, 01 Jul 2020 12:45:10 +0000 myESR 3242 at https://www.myesr.org ESR emphasises imaging’s role in the fight against COVID-19 and renews call for collaboration https://www.myesr.org/article/3209 <span property="schema:name">ESR emphasises imaging’s role in the fight against COVID-19 and renews call for collaboration</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">myESR</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2020-04-15T09:15:59+00:00">Wed, 04/15/2020 - 11:15</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><strong>Wednesday, April 15</strong> - On the occasion of the World Health Day 2020, the <a href="https://www.myesr.org/">European Society of Radiology (ESR)</a> wrote a statement reminding politicians in the European Union that medical imaging contributes to the fight against COVID-19.</p> <p>The statement calls for healthcare systems to implement multidisciplinary and integrated solutions to offer the right diagnostic and treatment options to patients, highlighting that medical imaging plays an important part in this endeavour by offering expertise to accurately diagnose and treat COVID-19 patients.</p> <p>Key points of the statement, which is divided into six parts, include the importance of using medical imaging for an accurate diagnosis, having sufficient PPE and adequate working procedures during the crisis, and also highlight the need to maintain high-quality levels of care for corona and non-corona patients with continued free circulation of medical goods between hospitals to ensure ongoing care. Further key points include the need to acknowledge the contribution of medical societies to education, clinical practice and research in order to translate this into actionable support measures, and the need to ensure that healthcare systems are resilient enough to withstand similar crises in the future.</p> <p>The statement also highlights a document published in European Radiology in collaboration with the European Society of Thoracic Imaging (ESTI), which summarises the most important imaging features and findings of COVID-19.
