The development of Neuroradiology as a specialty within Europe continues to evolve, as does the final examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR). As part of this evolution process, a new format for the final examination was instituted in 2013. The rules established in this document 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 final examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR) is organized by the European Board of Neuroradiology (EBNR). The goal of the EBNR is to provide guidance to potential candidates and to administer the final examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR).

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

There will be three overall components to the examination (written knowledge examination with multiple choice questions [MCQs] for individual course modules, a 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 written, multiple-choice-question examinations and an oral examination.
