Basic concept

The Radiology Assistant is a non-profit organization.

Our goal is to provide education in radiology and to help medical care in South East Asia.

The Radiology Assistant is an initiative of the radiologist Robin Smithuis for the Radiology Society of the Netherlands to provide up-to-date radiological education for radiology residents and radiologists.
The free availability of this information reflects the commitment of the Radiology Assistant to provide knowledge to a wide audience.
We focus on common clinical problems in which imaging plays a major role in the management of the patient.
The subjects are presented by experts in the field.
