About

The eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology is a project developed by the Education Committee and the Undergraduate Education Subcommittee of the ESR.

This eBook has been created to serve medical students, but also residents in their first year(s) of training, as well as academic teachers throughout Europe to understand and teach radiology as a whole coherent discipline, respectively. Its contents are based on the Undergraduate Level of the ESR European Training Curriculum for Radiology and summarize the so-called core elements that may be considered as the basics that every medical student should be familiar with. Although specific radiologic diagnostic skills for image interpretation cannot be acquired by all students and rather belong to the learning objectives of the Postgraduate Levels of the ESR Training Curricula, the present eBook also contains some further insights related to modern imaging in the form of examples of key pathologies, as seen by the different imaging modalities. These are intended to give not only interested undergraduate students but also radiology residents an understanding of modern radiology, reflecting its multidisciplinary character as an organ-based specialty.

This project was initiated by the former ESR Education Committee Chair, Prof. Carlo Catalano, and realised under the guidance of the current ESR Education Committee Chair, Prof. Minerva Becker.

This is an ongoing project and new chapters will be added in the future.

We sincerely hope that this eBook, created with huge efforts by the foremost radiological experts on the continent, will serve teachers and students and will help in understanding radiology as a dynamic and compelling discipline. We would like to extend our special thanks to the authors!
