International Day of Radiology – Nov 8

International Day of Radiology is celebrated November 8, the anniversary of the discovery of the x-ray by

Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen. This day recognizes the important role radiologists play in healthcare delivery.

Medical imaging includes x-rays, MRI scans, and ultrasound. Sponsoring organizations, the American College of Radiology (ACR), the RSNA, and the European Society of Radiology, will be joined by more than 140 medical organizations.

This year’s celebration is dedicated to breast imaging. Breast imaging has an important role in the detection and diagnosis of diseases of the breast. Regular mammography screening was introduced in the United States in the early 1990s and has resulted in a 35% decrease in breast cancer.

Radiologists play an important role in the safe care of patients and are vital members of a patient’s healthcare team. An increase in the use of diagnostic imaging means that the radiologist has an expanded role in patient safety and information management, acts as an expert consultant, uses image-guided therapeutic intervention, participates in making recommendations for appropriate tests and treatment, and more.

Events for International Day of Radiology are being held worldwide and include runs to raise awareness, free mammograms for women who lack healthcare insurance coverage, various lectures, and tours of imaging facilities.
