Translations

As the family of radiologists is steadily growing, it is becoming more and more important for the community of experts to keep track of the exciting new research their colleagues conduct in other parts of the world.

Without doubt, English today is the lingua franca of science, but it is also true that a majority of scientists do not speak English as their mother tongue. Reading research articles in their mother tongue makes it easier for scientists to concentrate on the scientific message rather than on the foreign language.

Tenemos el placer de presentarles los resúmenes, puntos y palabras clave de los artículos publicados en European Radiology en español. Queremos ofrecer este servicio a la comunidad científica hispanohablante, y esperamos que les facilite la selección de artículos interesantes. Las traducciones se han realizado minuciosamente por radiólogos con excelentes conocimientos del español y el inglés, coordinadas y editadas por el Dr Antonio López Rueda (Murcia/ES).

We would like to thank the CSR for their cooperation and their excellent pioneering work in this field: The Chinese Society of Radiology (CSR): the abstracts of articles published in the printed issues of European Radiology are translated into Chinese (Mandarin). It is our pleasure to offer this service to the Chinese speaking radiology community, and to add to the high profile of these studies and case reports by making them more easily accessible.
