RADIOLOGY WEBSITES : RADIOLOGIC ORGANIZATIONS / PROFESSIONAL BODIES

Few Useful Websites on Radiology Organizations / Professional Bodies

1. Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at http://www.rsna.org is a professional body whose purpose is to promote and develop the highest standards of radiology and related sciences through education and research. RSNA Launch Pad at http://www.rsna.org/education/launchpad/index.html is a spellbinding set of links while the RSNA Index to Imaging Literature available at http://rsnaindex.rsnajnls.org/ is a useful index for radiologists world-wide. The latter index is updated quarterly and contains citation references of nearly 40 radiology journals. There is an interesting section on Clinical Practice Guidelines at http://www.rsna.org/practice/practiceguidelines.html linking to nearly 25 practice guidelines from leading medical speciality professional organisations.


2. American College of Radiology (ACR)
at http://www.acr.org is the principal organization of radiologists, radiation oncologists and clinical medical physicists in the United States which supports advance of the science of radiology, study of the socioeconomic aspects of practice of radiology, and encourages continuing education. The sections on Publications / Products has the all important and downloadable "Appropriateness Criteria" and "Standards". While "Appropriateness Criteria" deals with determining appropriate imaging examinations for diagnosis and treatment of specified medical condition(s), the "Standards" reflect the radiologic practice to help advance the science of radiology and to improve the quality of service to patients.

3.
American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is accessible at http://www.arrs.org/. The Society is dedicated to the goal of educating radiologists and to the advancement of medicine through the science of radiology and its allied sciences.. Continuing medical education, which is the foremost goal of the society, is achieved principally through an annual scientific and educational meeting, and publication of the American Journal of Roentgenology, besides other activities. From the site one can browse through the eAJR, at http://www.arrs.org/eajr/ a special online educational resource, which links to Cases of the Week, Pictorial Essays and AJR Web Review.

4. American Board of Radiology (ABR) at http://theabr.org/ is the official website of the professional body that encourages to improve the quality of graduate education in Radiology and to elevate the standards of training in Radiology and radiologic physics. The official newsletter of the ABR is titled "Examiner" and makes interesting reading

5.
American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) at http://www.asnr.org/ is the official home page of the Neuroradiology Society, which encompasses a variety of sections and links. An interesting feature is ASNR Webcasts at http://www.asnr.org/webcasts.htm wherein information presented during the "How-to-Sessions" at the Annual Meeting can be seen and heard, with the help of Real player. Topics generating interest in Neuroradiology such as CT, CTA and Perfusion in Acute Stroke by L Tannenbaum, Physiological Imaging in Ischemic Stroke by H Yonas, and Carotid MRA by W. Bradley to name a few can be seen here.

6. American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) at http://www.aium.org/ is the website of a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to advancing the art and science of ultrasound in medicine and research through its educational, scientific, literary and professional activities. The membership includes physicians, engineers, veterinarians, sonographers, technicians, manufacturers, and medical students.

7. Society of Cardiovascular & Interventional Radiology (SCVIR)
or at http://www.scvir.org/ is the website of a professional society for physicians who specialize in interventional or minimally invasive procedures. The site has sections on Consumers, Membership, Education material, The engrossing Clinical Practice Guidelines is accessible at http://www.scvir.org/clinical/index.htm#9 and http://www.practiceguidelines.org and deals with practice principles producing high quality medical care.

8. The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) at http://www.ismrm.org/ is "a nonprofit professional association devoted to furthering the development and application of magnetic resonance techniques in medicine and biology". The society publishes two journals, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. A newsletter MR Pulse Newsletter online is accessible at http://www.ismrm.org/pulse/.

9. Society for Computer Applications in Radiology (SCAR)
at http://www.scarnet.org/ "is devoted to advance computer applications and information technology in medical imaging through education and research". "A fundamental role of SCAR is to bridge the gap between engineers and scientists who develop the systems and radiologists and technologists who use them".

10. Association of Educators in Radiologic Sciences (AERS)
at http://www.aers.org/ has its primary goal to meet the needs of the educator in radiological sciences. Maintained by Richard Terrass, Medical, the AERS is now considered as one of the largest organizations for radiologic science educators. A useful Radiology Search Tool for all Radiologists is available in the form of http://www.aers.org/radiology.html. Similarly, the resource section at http://www.aers.org/resources.html is handy too.
