World Radiography Day – Sun 8 November 2020

This weekend we celebrate the hard work and dedication that Radiographers have in improving patient outcomes across the world.

World Radiography Day (WRD) marks the anniversary of the discovery of x-radiation, by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895, and the impact it has made within the medical profession. Each year on November 8, radiography professionals around the world celebrate this vital contribution to modern healthcare by promoting the profession and raising public awareness of our important work.


Take part in the Society of Radiographers (SoR) #myradcolleague campaign.

Over the World Radiography weekend, the SoR are encouraging you to celebrate your colleagues by taking part in our #myradcolleague campaign. Even though they are unable to hold the Radiographer of the Year Awards Ceremony this year, it’s still important to recognise our exceptional radiographers, outstanding leaders, and amazing examples of teamwork within Radiology departments, especially during this year of crisis.

To take part, all you have to do is share a short testimonial on our social channels between November 6-10 using: @scormembers #myradcolleague #WRD2020

You can also send your pictures, audio and video with a quote about your rad colleague to and the SoR will share your stories.

Whatever your plans are to celebrate, have a great day, and know how much you are appreciated for the fantastic work you do.
