The first and only European Day of Radiology (EDoR) was celebrated on 10 February 2011. Seven years later, Medsquare is taking the opportunity of this special date to recall the immense progress and benefits of medical imaging with regard to patient care. Organized by the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the date of 10 February was chosen because it is the anniversary of the death of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, the discoverer of X-rays. The EDoR was organized by the ESR, which has since collaborated with the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) to establish the International Day of Radiology (IDoR), celebrated annually on 8 November (the day Röntgen discovered X-rays).
