On November 8th the Radiology community celebrates the eighth global International Day of Radiology (IDOR 2019). November 8th marks a poignant moment in radiology history; the day that Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the existence of X-Rays in 1895.
The theme for 2019’s IDOR is Sports Imaging. Sports Imaging is a sub-speciality within Radiology which focuses on the parts of the body commonly injured by athletes or people partaking in sporting activities. Within Radiology we use the term Musculoskeletal (MSK). This covers all areas of the body which contain bones, joints and soft tissues.
We meet some of our Radiologists and find out why this sub-specialty of continues to peak their interest.
