Mission & Vision

The European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR) is dedicated to advancing the knowledge, diagnosis and treatment of both the normal and abnormal musculoskeletal system by means of imaging. The ESSR provides a European forum for education and research of musculoskeletal radiology.

The ESSR is the primary organization in Europe that enhances the development, distribution, and cost-effective implementation of state of the art radiological concepts and tools in the musculoskeletal system. It fosters cooperation between medical and non-medical professionals who are active in furthering the development of musculoskeletal radiology with the specific aim of benefiting their patients.

The ESSR aims to produce solutions to current and imminent issues by promoting and supporting research throughout Europe and to provide channels for continuous education. For these two purposes, the ESSR coordinates research activities, develops educational and multidisciplinary research activities and encourages the presentation of the results of these endeavors at its annual meeting. The annual meeting is the major European forum for sharing advances in musculoskeletal radiology and offers excellence in education.
