International Day of Radiology 2018

The International Day of Radiology (IDoR) will be celebrated for the seventh time on November 8, this year focusing on cardiac imaging. A fast-growing subspecialty of diagnostic radiology, cardiac imaging plays a huge part in the assessment and management of heart patients throughout the world, interpreting images to diagnose and monitor a wide range of diseases of the heart. Browse featured research below from our Springer, SpringerOpen and BMC journals relating to cardiac imaging.
