European Society of Radiology reaches 100,000 members

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) now has a worldwide membership of more than 100,000, including members from 163 countries. Membership saw an increase of 34 percent compared to figures issued in 2018.

“This is a remarkable achievement for our society and I am happy to be a part of the ESR leadership during a time when the society has really focused on expanding its role, not only inside but also outside of Europe,” Bernd Hamm, ESR Chairman of the Board of Directors, said in a prepared statement. 

The increase in membership, the statement read, is attributed mostly by national societies outside of Europe that promote ESR membership and its benefits. 

ESR membership benefits include reduced registration fees for the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) and access to three radiology journals. Additionally, members can gain access to unlimited content on the society’s online educational programs and all European School of Radiology activities. 

“I would like to extend my personal gratitude to all those societies that worked to promote the ESR amongst their members,” Hamm said in the same statement.
