Today is the 5th annual International Day of Radiology, purposed to increase overall awareness of current topics in radiology and the value of radiology research. Each year, a specific area of radiology is highlighted; this year, the area is breast imaging. Activities are happening across the globe to raise awareness of the importance of breast imaging. For example, in Algeria a public run has been arranged in order to raise awareness for breast cancer screenings, in Croatia, lectures are being made available for women to be educated on the basics of breast screenings, and the list continues. International Day of Radiology truly is a global celebration, which is educating people on pertinent topics in radiology.
