Award announced for quality initiatives in radiology

Telemedicine Clinic, a leading European provider of teleradiology services, has launched an award to promote quality initiatives within European radiology. The TMC Radiology Quality Award, which consists of a special diploma and a sun of €10 000, will be granted at a ceremony at the upcoming ECR congress in Vienna in early 2014. The award is intended for professionals, individuals or groups, working in European radiology departments who have implemented systems, methods or processes with a demonstrated positive quality impact.

“Having the opportunity to work with close to 100 radiology departments in several European countries, we frequently come across a number of good examples of initiatives to improve quality. We believe that it is important to introduce solid solutions for quality assurance and improvement within radiology. By introducing this unique award we hope to encourage such initiatives”, says Dr Hans Billing, Medical Director at Telemedicine Clinic.

The submission process for the 2014 TMC Radiology Quality Award is open from 1st of October 2013 and will close by 30th of December. An international jury will review the submitted applications and the winner will be invited for the award ceremony at ECR in Vienna in March.
