W. Jaschke, C. Radiation Protection Subcommittee
Conclusion and recommendations
The RPP 2019 was a success and its talks were well attended. The pavilion achieved its goal of raising awareness of the health hazards related to ionising radiation, and thus contributed to the efforts to increase the safety of medical staff and patients. Concerning the terminology, CIRSE promotes the terminology recommended by the ICRP and the use of DRLs for optimisation, and the term “trigger levels” to indicate the alert or alarm level for particular patients and particular procedures.
In the coming months, the CIRSE Radiation Protection Subcommittee will prepare the 2020 edition of the RPP focusing on addressing How to report and measure dose, aiming to once more provide practical advice and transferable knowledge to participants of the CIRSE 2020 congress.
In parallel, the subcommittee will further pursue its various scientific collaborations with other organisations in the field of radiation protection. Together with ESR, EFRS, IAEA, ICRP and EFOMP, the subcommittee is working on a white paper on “Unintended exposures, critical dose levels and substantial radiation dose”, which will be published in 2020. Furthermore, the subcommittee is collaborating with IAEA and IOMP to produce joint webinars to educate and train medical professionals regarding radiation protection.
