Our Mission

The Azerbaijan Society of Radiologists is dedicated to advancing the field of radiology in Azerbaijan by fostering excellence and innovation in medical imaging and therapeutic interventions. Our mission is to support and empower radiologists through continuous education, research, and the promotion of the highest standards of patient care. We are committed to facilitating collaboration among professionals and advocating for the vital role of radiology in comprehensive healthcare.


Initiated in 2018 under the guidance of Yunus Afandiyev, the Azerbaijan Society of Radiologists has rapidly become an influential entity in the realm of medical imaging and radiology. After joining the European Society of Radiology (ESR) in 2020, the Society broadened its international connections and collaborative efforts. Notably, it holds joint meetings with Turkish, Canadian, and Russian radiological societies, promoting an international dialogue and exchange of expertise in the field. These collaborative efforts are a testament to the Society's dedication to incorporating global perspectives and practices to enrich radiology in Azerbaijan.
