FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 1, 2017 Contact: Donna Breckenridge firstname.lastname@example.org (520) 790-2900The American Board of Radiology (ABR) announces its newly designed website, which was launched on July 31 at www.theabr.org.Almost a year ago, the ABR began working with an outside vendor to redesign its website, with the goal of improving users’ overall experience. After receiving suggestions for a new design and navigation, a team of more than a dozen ABR staff members began the work of implementing the new site, as well as reviewing and editing all content.In addition to enhancing the “look and feel” of the website, its restructured navigation will help users easily find the information they need. The site consists of four separate areas for each of the ABR’s specialties: diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, medical physics, and radiation oncology. A section is also available with resources for the general public.The new website includes interactive apps to help diagnostic radiology residents determine when they are eligible to take the Core Exam and when they will receive their results from the Certifying Exam. These apps will be added to other ABR disciplines in the future as further enhancements are made to the new website.###Established in 1934, the mission of the American Board of Radiology (ABR) is to certify that our diplomates demonstrate the requisite knowledge, skill, and understanding of their disciplines to the benefit of patients. The ABR offers primary certification in diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, radiation oncology, and medical physics, as well as several subspecialty certifications. The ABR is one of 24 Member Boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties. For more information, see www.theabr.org.
