New President's Letter
Dear ISR Members,
It is a great honour and pleasure for me to serve as the new President of ISR. I am pleased to take on this challenging duty from my predecessor Dr. James Borgstede, following the very successful ICR 2016 congress in Buenos Aires.
During my two-year presidency I aim to work on strengthening the interaction and exchange among our members and increasing the total membership. One of our core activities will be to support and provide education in less developed countries, as well as to further develop the ISR’s quality and safety activities. The ISR is well positioned, as an NGO in official relations with the WHO and IAEA, to represent radiology with a unified voice.
I look forward to working and interacting with all of you!
Dr. Ricardo Garcia-Monaco

Alliance at RSNA 2016
The ISR formally established
a new format for its quality and safety activities at the recent RSNA 2016
congress. The ISR Quality and Safety
Alliance (ISRQSA) will act as a convener of and facilitator for
continental, regional and national quality and safety campaigns in radiation
protection and drive the ISR’s quality and safety agenda. Dr. Guy Frija,
EuroSafe Imaging Chair of the European Society of Radiology and Dr. Don Frush,
Image Gently Chair, were appointed as chairs of ISRQSA during RSNA 2016.

The ISR invites national member societies with current dues paid for 2016 to consider hosting the International Congress of Radiology in 2018. Letters of interest are due by September 19, 2016 and overall proposals are due by November 1, 2016. An email with complete details has been sent to all national member societies with fully paid dues.
Please note that inquiries will only be accepted from ISR member societies.
Dear ISR Members,
The IAEA is interested in creating model plans for the development and building of a radiology department. Such plans would include the physical plant, the equipment, and the personal required for a radiology department. There would be more than one model plan depending on the size of such a department and the modalities that would be included. Plans might range from basic e.g. a radiographic unit for a department or perhaps another one modality department up to a complete department including all modalities.
If readers have information that could assist the IAEA they can email Diana Paez, Section Head, Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging Section , Division of Human Health.
Any information you can provide to Diana would be appreciated.
Jim Borgstede, President, ISR

NEW ISR Educational Global Outreach Effort
GO RAD: Global Outreach Radiology
GO RAD is a new global outreach program developed by the International Society of Radiology. The purpose is to reach out to and advance radiology education throughout a global radiology community by aggregating current, practical, radiology literature with content targeted and dedicated to developing nations and underserved populations.
Each month you will find open (free) access to a growing collection of selected, current, practical, radiology articles, courtesy of the ISR and some of the world's most prestigious radiology journals. We sincerely hope that you find this effort of great value. Please tell your colleagues!
The ISR is grateful for the
