Head and Neck Imaging - ESR eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology
Two of our members, Dr Edith Vassallo and Dr Reuben Grech, have authored the ESR eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology – 10 Head and Neck Imaging, which is available on the ESR website!
Quoting from the ESR site: "The eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology is a project developed by the Education Committee and the Undergraduate Education Subcommittee of the European Society of Radiology. This eBook has been created to serve medical students, but also residents in their first year(s) of training, as well as academic teachers throughout Europe to understand and teach radiology as a whole coherent discipline, respectively".
A giant leap forward in enhancing the diagnosis of cancer

Until now, patients requiring cancer diagnostic facilities were obliged either to travel abroad or go to a private clinic. This project therefore reduces inequalities in the Maltese healthcare system.
