November 8 Marks Second Annual International Day of Radiology
The AOCR took part in the second annual International Day of Radiology (IDoR) — Friday, Nov. 8, 2013 — the 118th anniversary of the discovery of the X-ray. The theme of this year’s IDoR is lung imaging, which plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases.
IDoR also recognizes the many innovations in radiology research that have revolutionized modern medicine and saved countless lives. The AOCR joins more than 100 medical societies in 57 countries around the world in celebrating this very special day. We invite you and your practice to do the same.
Please take advantage of an online “communications toolkit” for radiology groups to use to help spread the word about IDoR. The toolkit includes a customizable news release, op-ed and print advertisement for use on websites as well as other resources. You may access the toolkit at acr.org/IDOR.

International Day of Radiology is sponsored by the American College of Radiology, the European Society of Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America.
Thank you for your votes!
Thanks to all of you who helped in the voting for the Hall of Famous Missourians! Although official results are not in, A.T. Still has won the voting by a fairly substantial margin over 2nd place Robert Heinlein. This was a truly INTERNATIONAL effort as not only state and national organizations participated, but international osteopathic societies as well. Earlier in the week, we fell behind in the voting by a substantial margin due to social networking among science fiction writers and their followers. Virtually overnight they went from no votes for Robert Heinlein to doubling A.T. Still’s. With a quick response and grassroots effort, within 48 hours we had overtaken Heinlein in the voting. While not as important as healthcare reform or other issues we face every day, this shows what the osteopathic profession can do if they all work together.
