Message from the Chair of the Board of Directors, Paul M. Parizel

Now that summer is over, the ESR looks forward to many exciting activities this fall. I am proud to start my update of this ESR@Work issue by announcing a new membership record! For the first time ever, the ESR is proud to announce that we have passed the 70,000 mark, and we reached a total of 73,000 members as of August 31, 2017. This is a huge achievement, and I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support of our society. 73,000 is much more than just a number. It means that there are 73,000 dedicated professionals who believe in the project of the European Society of Radiology. Thank you for your confidence.
