Structure

A portrait of the Section

The Specialist Sections of the UEMS represent the interests of their particular specialty and have the right to create their own Boards to address scientific and training interests. Each Section is responsible to the Council and must regularly report on all its activities.

Delegations to the Section of Radiology come from 40 different countries, ranging from Europe´s tiniest nations to some of the largest, including Full Member countries (in green on the map), and Associates (yellow) and Observers (orange) from the Near East, North Africa and Caucasus areas.

The Section includes two sub-specialty divisions dedicated to Interventional Radiology and Neuroradiology.

The annual fees of the Section are currently based on the official UEMS Repartition Key – structured according to Gross Domestic Product, population and number of specialists.

The UEMS Council has established three Groupings of the Presidents and Secretaries of the Sections. Each Section can only belong to one Grouping and the decision is taken by the Council. Each of the three Groupings elects one Chair and the Secretary of the Grouping. The term in office of a Grouping´s Chair and Secretary is four years.

Radiology belongs to Grouping III – Multidisciplinary and Prof. Paolo Ricci is the current Chair, thus sitting in advisory capacity in the UEMS Enlarged Executive Committee (EEC).

On Saturday, 29th October 2016 in Rome, it was agreed to enlarge the number of elected officers and include the Presidents of the Neuroradiology and Interventional Radiology divisions in the Executive Bureau. The current Executive Chairs of the Section of Radiology are displayed below.
