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

✏️ 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.

IAEA Radiation Protection in Medicine Conference 2017

Posted December 6, 2017

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) is getting ready for its participation in the IAEA International Conference on Radiation Protection in Medicine in Vienna, 11-15 December. As a cooperating organisation of the conference, the ESR has the opportunity to present its radiation protection activities with a focus on the EuroSafe Imaging campaign.

EuroSafe Imaging translated the IAEA-WHO 2012 Bonn Call for Action into a European perspective, focusing on developing guidance and practical tools to support ESR members with the implementation of the European Basic Safety Standards Directive (2013/59/Euratom). Read more here.
