Membership of the Society is open to all European radiologists who have a prime interest in musculoskeletal radiology. By this it is assumed that they will be spending at least 50% of their time working in the sub-speciality and would almost certainly have published fairly extensively in this field. In addition, radiologists from outside of the continent of Europe can be considered for corresponding membership by the same criteria.
