EuroSafe Imaging Working Groups 2023-2024

1. Strategies for Image Quality of the Future
The aim of this Working Group is to define what “appropriate image quality” is through a panel of experts, working on a per-organ basis for the clinically most relevant CT imaging tasks. This group also aims to raise awareness of the concept of ‘appropriate image quality’; suggesting strategies for the (clinical) implementation of indication-specific image quality appropriateness criteria and approaches for the development and application of future avenues of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).
