This year on 8 November 2018 we will celebrate the 7th International Day of Radiology. This year the theme for the IODR is Cardiac imaging. The BSCI/BSCCT is delighted to take part in these celebrations which aim to improve the awareness of the importance of radiology in patient care and the understanding of the vital role radiologists and radiographers play in healthcare.

To celebrate the International Day of Radiology the BSCI/BSCCT have launched a podcast. The podcast will feature interviews and discussions with cardiovascular imagers from around the UK and around the world. Click here for the link to the podcast.
To coincide with the International Day of Radiology the BSCI/BSCCT and the Royal College of Radiologists have released new figures revealing that thousands of patients are missing out on potentially life-saving heart scans. Dr Giles Roditi (BSCI/BSCCT President) said “CTCA scans are incredibly good at detecting and ruling out heart disease, almost perfect. It is beyond frustrating that we do not have the capacity to provide what should be a routine frontline test for everyone presenting with chest pain.” Click here for more information.
For the rest of this week the BSCI/BSCCT will be running a heart themed baking competition. Post your heart themed baking on twitter (copying in @bscimaging and #IDoR) until Thursday 15th November! Click here for our twitter account.
