About

Aims and scope

European Radiology is the flagship journal of the European Society of Radiology with an Impact Factor of 5.9.

It continuously updates scientific knowledge in the field of radiology by publishing strong original articles and state-of-the-art reviews authored by leading radiologists. A well-balanced combination of review articles, original papers, short communications from European radiological congresses and information on society matters makes the journal an indispensable source for current information in this field.

The journal is one of the most widely disseminated journals in radiology. Active members of the ESR have full electronic access as part of their membership.
