EuroSafe Imaging Stars
EuroSafe Imaging Stars is an initiative designed to identify and recognise imaging facilities worldwide that embody best practice in radiation protection. By partnering with institutions that are committed to putting the principles advocated and concepts developed by the European Society of Radiology into practice, EuroSafe Imaging aims to bridge the gap from raising awareness and advocacy to impacting the reality of clinical practice.
In this way, the initiative marks an important step forward in implementing the EuroSafe Imaging Call for Action. More than that, these partnerships will allow the ESR to learn and benefit from the experience of participating institutions to make its services and tools even more effective and useful in future.
One important contribution EuroSafe Imaging Stars will be expected to make in this regard is to participate in the data collection efforts through the ‘Is Your Imaging EuroSafe?’ surveys on CT doses, making the resulting benchmarks more reliable.
Imaging departments have two options to become EuroSafe Imaging Stars: being nominated by a national radiology society; or, if the head of the facility is an ESR member in good standing via the online application form.
The self-evaluation criteria and evaluation process are currently being refined. Thus, it is currently not possible to submit an application to join the EuroSafe Imaging Stars network. An update will be provided soon. For any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
