Organized as the Southeastern Skeletal Radiology Society with its first meeting in 1978, the SSR began with about 15 founding members
who met informally once a year to show and discuss interesting case material and other topics relevant to the practice of skeletal
radiology in the region. By 1989, membership had doubled to about 30 skeletal radiologists, and by 1994, there were nearly 130 members.
The current membership is approximately 600 members. The SSR is the organization that represents the subspecialty of musculoskeletal radiology in the U.S.
