Introduction World Radiology Day, also known as International Day of Radiology (IdoR), is celebrated every year by medical organizations around the world on 8th of November. It’s celebrated for popularizing various services being offered by the radiologists worldwide and how people can use them to assess their health periodically.
The history of the day began on November 8, 2011, when European Society of Radiology (ESR) decided to celebrate a European Day of Radiology to commemorate the death of Wilhelm Rontgen, who had discovered X-Rays on the same day in 1895. The members of society together celebrated the achievements of radiology so far and also tried to raise some public awareness about the benefits of various al services on the day. This celebration put the foundations of what would later become known as International Day of Radiology.
