Division of Neuroradiology
In an inaugural meeting in Brussels on September 13th
2008, the "Division of Neuroradiology" was formed. The officers of
the Division were elected and Professor Olof FIodmark,
Sweden, was elected as the first President of this division.
Professor Massimo Gallucci from Italy was elected General Secretary
and Professor Peter Barsi of Hungary was elected Treasurer.
The birth of the Division of Neuroradiology may prove to be the
most important event in the history of European Neuroradiology. The
"Division of Neuroradiology" effectively provides Neuroradiology
with a "face and voice" in Brussels. We are now recognised as a
radiological speciality defined by a training program and a body of
knowledge that is specific for Neuroradiology.
It is in most cases the National Medical Associations formally
appointing the national delegates to the "Division of
Neuroradiology"! The proper procedure will therefore be for
the National Societies of Neuroradiology to contact the member of
UEMS in their respective country and propose their choice of
delegates to the UEMS "Division of Neuroradiology". It is suggested
that each member country appoints two delegates, representing
"universities and practising neuroradiologists on an equal
footing". They shall be confirmed by their country's National
Medical Organisation recognised by UEMS.
