Boost your radiation protection knowledge
Posted June 8, 2018
EuroSafe Imaging aims, among other issues, at enhancing educational material and training activities in radiation protection (Action 8 of the Call for Action 2018).
To do so, EuroSafe Imaging is regularly organising webinars and publishing short educational material called Tips & Tricks, which focus on radiation protection topics related to CT, interventional radiology and paediatric imaging.

Update from the EUCLID project
Posted May 3, 2018
The 33-month project EUCLID (European Study on Clinical Diagnostic Reference Levels for X-ray Medical Imaging) funded by the European Commission aims at advancing the optimisation of radiation protection of patients in Europe. It will provide up-to-date clinical DRLs for the, from a radiation protection perspective, most important x-ray imaging tasks in Europe.
The project team is now pleased to present the Report and review on existing clinical DRLs, as well as the final list of clinical indications for which DRLs will be established. Both documents are available here.
Learn more about Diagnostic Reference Levels (DRLs)
Posted March 23, 2018
Thanks to all of you who joined us for the EuroSafe Imaging webinar on Diagnostic Reference Levels (DRLs) jointly organised with the IAEA Radiation Protection of Patients Unit. The recorded broadcast is available here.
To learn more about clinical DRLs for x-ray medical imaging, you might also take a look at the recorded EuroSafe Imaging session of ECR 2018, which is available here (for free, but pre-registration is required).
EuroSafe Imaging is also supporting the European Commission tender project EUCLID, which implements a European study on clinical DRLs s for x-ray medical imaging. Details about this ongoing project are available here.
EuroSafe Imaging featured prominently on ECR 2018 agenda
Posted March 20, 2018
The European Congress of Radiology 2018 introduced new session formats, new locations, new scientific highlights and a booming technical exhibition. As in previous years, the ESR’s radiation protection campaign, EuroSafe Imaging, also had strong representation at the congress to raise awareness about quality and safety in medical imaging. Learn more about EuroSafe Imaging’s activities at ECR 2018 here.
EuroSafe Imaging EPOS Poster Exhibition at ECR 2018
Posted March 12, 2018
With 89 submitted posters, the EuroSafe Imaging Poster Exhibition at ECR 2018 was the biggest exhibition so far. The posters attracted almost 1,500 views during the congress, which represents another record for EuroSafe Imaging. View the ECR 2018 EuroSafe Imaging posters here.
EuroSafe Imaging Call for Action 2018
Posted February 23, 2018
EuroSafe Imaging is delighted to present its second Call for Action to contribute to achieving the campaign’s aims. The EuroSafe Imaging Call for Action 2018 comprises 13 action items which guide all activities developed by EuroSafe Imaging. Read more here.
To learn more about the EuroSafe Imaging Call for Action 2018, visit the EuroSafe Imaging Lounge at the European Congress of Radiology 2018.
✏️ Questionnaire about the Clinical Use of Dose Monitoring Software in Computed Tomography
Posted February 15, 2018
EuroSafe Imaging is pleased to invite all European ESR members to the EuroSafe Imaging Questionnaire about the Clinical Use of Dose Monitoring Software in Computed Tomography. The on-line questionnaire is available here. Of course, the data analysis will be done anonymously.
The questionnaire is aimed at understanding the consistency of clinical implementation and use of dose monitoring software among European ESR members. This will help EuroSafe Imaging to estimate whether these systems are helpful to improve clinical CT practice by reducing radiation dose. Moreover, we expect that dose monitoring software can help to re-shape the existing concept of diagnostic reference levels (based on patient’s anatomy) towards a concept of local clinical DRLs (based on clinical indications).
Comply with the Basic Safety Standards – NOW!
Posted February 6, 2018
The Basic Safety Standards (Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom) against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation must be transposed by EU member states by today (February 6).
Help is at hand! Check out here what EuroSafe Imaging has in store to help you comply with the BSS.
