Welcome Words by the Congress Presidents

On behalf of the European Society of Skeletal Radiology, we would like to invite you to the ESSR 2015 annual meeting to be held in the historic city of York in the Barbican Centre. York is a city rich in history and was originally founded by the Romans in AD71. As such it presents a fascinating timeline of archaeology with many important artefacts from Roman times, Viking occupations as well as medieval times. It is one of the most important tourist attractions in the UK outside London. The York we see today is largely medieval with numerous historically important buildings; it is surrounded by medieval walls and has one of the largest gothic cathedrals in Northern Europe. For those wishing to tour beyond the city, York is surrounded by beautiful scenery being in close proximity to the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors, two of the UK’s most spectacular national parks. The city itself is small enough to walk around and has museums, parks and riverside walks with plenty for the visitor to do. The City also has many pubs and restaurants and many hotels at a range of prices to suit everyone. Transport links are excellent with frequent direct train services to London and to Manchester airport. There is also a regular bus service between York and Leeds/Bradford airport which has direct flights to Schipol and London Heathrow.

This meeting brings together a faculty of lecturers from across Europe with other invited guest lecturers from further afield. It offers scientific sessions and educational lectures presented in two parallel sessions allowing delegates to put together a program best suited to their needs. This year our theme will be The Shoulder and one of the lecture streams will be based entirely round this joint allowing an in depth presentation of imaging anatomy and pathology and interventional techniques.  The second lecture stream will cover a wide range of themes in MSK radiology. The ultrasound subcommittee of the ESSR will also be putting on a one day course on shoulder ultrasound (requiring separate registration) comprising lectures, demonstrations and small group “hands-on workshops”. Experience tells us these are always popular and sell out early.

A number of social events are planned which in addition to the educational program will contribute to also make this a convivial, cultural and social experience.
We hope you will join us for the 2015 ESSR meeting in York and look forward to welcoming you to the city.

International Day of Radiology
November 8, 2014
Let’s celebrate together!

This year, on November 8, the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will celebrate the third International Day of Radiology (IDoR 2014), along with radiological societies the world over. This follows the successful International Days of Radiology in 2012 and 2013, which were held with the aim of building greater awareness of the value that radiology contributes to safe patient care, and improving understanding of the vital role radiologists play in the healthcare continuum.

Brain imaging has been chosen as the main theme of the day, to highlight the important role that radiology plays in the detection, diagnosis and management of a wide variety of brain diseases.

For more information, please visit the IDoR 2014 website.

✧✧ ESSR NEWS: now more than 1000 Members! ✧✧

We are proud to announce having reached a membership of more than 1000 members in 2014.
This clearly shows the importance of this subspecialty within the broad field of radiology.

The ESSR has started cooperations with National Skeletal Radiology Societies to offer their members a reduced membership. We want to thank these societies for their cooperation and for fostering the exchange of experts in musculoskeletal radiology on a nationwide level:
- SERME: Sociedad Espanola de Radiología / Músculo-Esquelética
- SIMS: Societe d'Imagerie Musculo-Squelettique
- NFMSR: Norwegian Musculoskeletal Association
- ISSR: Irish Society of Skeletal Radiology
