EuroSafe Imaging Steering Committee

The EuroSafe Imaging campaign is an initiative under the ESR Radiation Protection Subcommittee whose activities are led by a Steering Committee composed of stakeholder representatives. The Steering Committee is charged with planning, coordinating and overseeing the implementation of the various EuroSafe Imaging activities, which include coordinating communication and outreach, developing safety criteria, hosting radiation protection sessions, organising training and education activities, as well as ensuring that these activites complement other ESR projects and initiatives.

The Steering Committee’s composition of delegates from the ESR, subspecialty societies, related medical professions, patient groups, and industry, along with an observer from the European Commission, will ensure a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to radiation protection. The chair of the Steering Committee is a member of the ESR Radiation Protection Subcommittee.
