EULAR Network of Imaging Centres
The major aim of a EULAR network of imaging centres is to attract rheumatologists and/or trainees in rheumatology who will be educated in a particular imaging technique or in developing research projects.
Interested European centres can apply to become part of the experts network, provided they are able and willing to offer training and/or develop research programmes in one or several of the following imaging techniques applied in rheumatology:
- conventional radiography
- magnetic resonance imaging
- computed tomography (CT)
- musculoskeletal ultrasound
- dual energy CT
- position emission tomography (PET)-CT
- optical imaging
Interested centres can either apply as "training centre" or "research centre". A training centre is able to provide training for the use of an imaging technique applied in rheumatology whereas a research centre is able to develop research projects in imaging. EULAR will not provide any funds, however, potential visitors to a centre may apply for a EULAR scientific bursary.
Each centre application will be carefully reviewed by the EULAR Education Committee and upon approval the centre will be listed here. Each designation is valid for 5 years, after which a centre can reapply for prolongation.
