Dalla Palma was an ESR Gold Medalist, and he was European Association of Radiology (EAR) president, ESR's forerunner, from 1993 to 1995. Born in 1928, he was president of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology from 1990 to 1994.

The European Society of Uroradiology (ESUR) posted a tribute on its website and said Dalla Palma was a "master of teaching and a reference for the Italian and international radiology community." He was one of the co-founders of the ESUR.

"He gave prestige to our discipline as president of the Italian Society of Radiology (SIRM) and through leading positions in many European societies," noted Dr. Raymond Oyen, president of ESUR. "Another great loss for Italian and European radiology."
