A new format for the final examination for the European Diploma of Neuroradiology (EDiNR) has been applied since 2013. These rules explain the entry requirements and the examination process. Additional notes will clarify important points. Eligible candidates who are successful in the final examination will be awarded the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR).

The development of Neuroradiology as a speciality within Europe continues to evolve. The final examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR) is organized by the European Board of Neuroradiology (EBNR). The final examination leading to the European Diploma in Neuroradiology has evolved over the last few years. This process of evolution is still ongoing. The goal of the EBNR is to provide guidance to potential candidates and to administer the final examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology.

The European Board of Neuroradiology is not an official certifying body yet. However, the EBNR-endorsed qualification confirms proof of additional training in addition to any national qualifications. Nonetheless, the European Diploma in Neuroradiology represents a standard of Neuroradiology training across Europe through attendance at the European Course of Neuroradiology (ECNR) and proof of understanding by passing the various components of the individual course examinations as well as of the final examination, objective high quality test of knowledge at the end of training and certificate of excellence.

There will be overall three components to the examination (written knowledge examination with multiple choice questions (MCQs) at individual course modules, final written examination with short cases and a final oral examination), further details of which are explained later in this document. Briefly, these will consist of a written multiple-choice questions examinations and an oral examination.

The formal annual examination for the EDiNR will, as stated of today, take place one day before the beginning of the Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Society of Neuroradiology. Oral examinations will be done by two examiners following the written examination.
