Brain imaging is main theme of International Day of Radiology, November 8, 2014

As you will be aware, the European Society of Radiology, together with the Radiological Society of North America and the American College of Radiology, launched the International Day of Radiology (IDoR) in 2012. The IDoR is always celebrated on November 8 to commemorate the day of Röntgen's discovery. Every year a specific topic is chosen as the main theme of the day; in 2012 we had oncologic imaging, in 2013 thoracic imaging, and for 2014 it was decided by the boards of the three organising societies to have brain imaging as our main theme. 


As such ESNR's assistance is asked to produce a publication related to these themes aimed at the general public for IDoR 2014. We would like to produce a publication which describes the role of imaging in five major diseases of the brain:
* Brain tumours
* Stroke
* Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia
* Parkinson's Disease
* Multiple Sclerosis

ESNR is looking for interested and dedicated volunteers that are willing to provide a text on one of these subjects. Preferentially we are looking for a junior member that prepares a text under the auspicies of a senior member. These texts should be aimed at the general public, along the lines of: which imaging modalities a patient would encounter in the detection, treatment and follow-up of the respective diseases; what is the preparation for an examination; and how do the actual examinations work.
Length of text: approx. 10,000 characters (incl. blanks), Deadline mid-May 2014.

Interested members, Junior or Senior, should make themselves known by sending a simple email to info@esnr.org before March 26.
