Today we are celebrating the seventh International Day of Radiology, which marks a remarkable 123 years since Wilhelm Röntgen discovered x-rays. Today is all about raising global awareness of the value that radiology contributes to early and proper diagnosis, patient care, and improving understanding of the vital role it plays in the healthcare ecosystem.
This is an important opportunity to celebrate the millions of lives we save every year, but also to highlight the exceptional work that we all undertake on a daily basis at Affidea.
