On 8th November the world medical community celebrates the International Day of Radiology (IDoR). This year the initiative is focused on Sports and Diagnostic Imaging. Diagnostic Imaging is one of the most state-of-the-art disciplines in the field of medicine and an area of activities related to technological and biological research.
At the Clinic of Diagnostic Imaging at UMHAT “St. Marina Varna”, high-tech diagnostic, invasive and interventional procedures have been performed with the latest-generation equipment. The Clinic is a training base of MU-Varna, where reputed, highly qualified specialists provide training for students, majoring in Medicine, Dental Medicine, X-ray laboratory assistants, nurses and midwives, rehabilitators and Diagnostic Imaging specialists.
The initiative for the celebration of the International Day occurred after an agreement between the European Society of Radiology (ESR), which is the largest scientific organization in the world, and the American Society of Radiology. The two organizations decided to establish the International Day of Radiology on 8th November.
On 8th November 1895 Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen patented the X-rays, as he called them, and laid the foundation for the medical discipline of Radiology.
