In 1992 the Education Commission of the European Association of Radiology conducted a survey amongst its 27 members in order to obtain an overview of the current pattern of radiological education in Europe. Postgraduate radiological education in Europe varies considerably. Only 15 out of 22 countries (68%) require clinical training before the commencement of radiological training which may vary from 2 to 6 years. Obligatory attendance at theoretical courses is required in 9 out of 15 countries (60%); the duration of such obligatory courses varying from 30 to 1600 hours.

Sub-specialisation is possible in 13 countries (56%) after education in general radiology. Neuroradiology is recognised as a sub-specialty of radiology in 11 countries and paediatric radiology in 9 countries. Other sub-specialties are officially recognised in 7 countries. Four to 35 doctors per 1,000,000 population are presently training in radiology. The number of recognised specialists in radiology varies between 33 and 153 per 1,000,000 population.
