EDiR Holders

Among its best-performing EDiR candidates, the EBR has selected six promising young radiologists from different countries and different backgrounds to form the “EDiR Holders” team.

The EDiR Holders are responsible for creating new material that is published weekly on the blog with a view to helping other radiologists prepare for the EDiR.
