Why Dr Joshua Shur joined the BIR
Why Dr Joshua Shur joined the BIR

"The BIR is the oldest radiological society in the world, and as a multidisciplinary organisation it is really interesting to meet other professionals involved in radiology.

I was really impressed with the YPAT SIG and I have now started to get involved with the group more actively."

Dr Joshua Shur, Trainee, St George's Hospital, Tooting, London
