MSK Radiology in Switzerland has quite a long tradition and many excellent experts are working in this field.
Quite a while ago we had an “Arbeitsgemeinschaft Muskuloskelettale Radiologie AGSR” in the SGR-SSR. This AGSR was abandoned because of lack of activities.
Many of us think, that we should re-establish an organisation for MSK Radiology in Switzerland to promote our subspecialty, to enhance collaboration and education, to network and to be a valuable partner to other specialities in the Musculoskeletal field (Rheumatology, Orthopaedic surgery, MSK-Oncology, Chiropractic medicine and many more).
Thus we have decided to go forward and found the Swiss Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology in Switzerland (SSSR), as an Associated Society of the SGR-SSR.
The proposal of the foundation of an “Associated Society for Skeletal Radiology” has already been accepted by the managing board of the SGR-SSR.
