EuroSafe issues 12-point action plan

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the EuroSafe Imaging Steering Committee have issued a 12-point plan calling for action on radiation safety.

Called the EuroSafe Imaging Call for Action, the plan furthers EuroSafe's objectives of promoting appropriateness in medical imaging, maintaining radiation doses within diagnostic reference levels, using the as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) principle, promoting the use of up-to-date equipment, empowering patients, and joining forces with various stakeholders, the groups said.

The plan supports the implementation of the Bonn Call for Action, issued in 2012 by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) at the International Conference on Radiation Protection in Medicine.

The action plan significantly contributes to achieving the aims in the 10 priority areas of the Bonn Call for Action. Click here to read the full strategy and action plan, or download the EuroSafe Imaging Call for Action as a leaflet or poster.
