ARRS Global Partner

British Institute of Radiology

The British Institute of Radiology (BIR), the oldest radiological society in the world, is an independent multidisciplinary organisation, and a registered charity, whose membership is open to everyone with an interest in radiology and radiation oncology.

We strive to ensure that the potential of image science and radiation technology to prevent, detect and combat disease is fully realised. We believe in the importance of research and education, and we promote collaboration and the sharing of knowledge and understanding.

To help fulfil our aims, we undertake a wide range of activities, including publishing, the organisation of scientific meetings and conferences and the provision of library and information services.


ARRS and BIR leaders met November 2015 to sign a new global society partnership agreement
