Welcome to the BIR Blog. Here you will find news, views and comments from individuals with a passion for radiology, radiation oncology and imaging. Participants in our blog reflect our multidiscplinary membership – so you will not only hear from physicists, radiologists, nurses, radiographers but from our corporate subscribers, our Council members and our staff.
The idea of the blog is to extend your knowledge and experience about the BIR, our members and our multidisciplinary community. All who contribute have a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise as well as strong opinions about best practice and innovation. If you like what you read – please share with your colleagues and friends and encourage them to follow our blog. Enjoy reading and please comment freely on our posts – we would love to hear from you.
