ESPR’s sister Societies

The ESPR’s sister societies are similarly committed to improve the health care of the patient by providing excellence of diagnostic imaging and treatment of neonates, infants, children and adolescents.
Like the ESPR, these societies aim to disseminate information/education to all paediatric health care providers using radiologic imaging techniques. Primarily through their annual national meetings and the dedicated monthly journal, Pediatric Radiology (co-produced by the four societies), they promote scientific review and critical appraisal of the specialty for their members and the international medical community. Moreover, they establish liaisons and provide information to local, state, regional, and international organisations holding responsibility for and authority over the development of both regulations and guidelines governing the medical imaging of paediatric patients.
The ESPR and its sister societies nurture their mutual ties. Their close cooperation and shared dedication to education and research aims to capitalise on improvements to healthcare standards in the imaging of children.



World Federation of Paediatric Imaging (WFPI)

In 2011, the four regional Societies – the European Society of Paediatric Radiology, the Society for Pediatric Society, the Latin American Society of Paediatric Radiology and the Asian and Oceanic Society of Paediatric Radiology – united to establish the World Federation of Paediatric Imaging (WFPI). The WFPI aims to address global barriers to optimal paediatric imaging care, promoting education, best practices, appropriate imaging guidelines, and working to provide better access to vital imaging care for children worldwide – particularly those in developing or war-torn areas. Inspired by a global reach developed through years of interaction and exchange, the regional societies pioneering the World Federation will, in close cooperation with global health organisations, foster ties between paediatric imaging organisations around the world and serve as a unified voice on the practice of paediatric imaging.


The ESPR is one of the four founding societies of the WFPI
