W. Jaschke, C. Radiation Protection Subcommittee
In 2014, the CIRSE Radiation Protection Subcommittee launched its first annual awareness campaign to increase radiation safety; the Radiation Protection Pavilion (RPP). Over the years, the RPP at the annual CIRSE congress has established itself as hotspot for all questions related to radiation safety. It offers congress participants the opportunity to attend expert talks and explore the latest products for radiation protection and dose management, presented by industry partners.
The Radiation Protection Pavilion directly addressed three EuroSafe Call for Action points:
- developing image quality assessment based on clinical indications (Action 3)
- organising radiation protection training courses and developing e-learning material to promote a safety culture and raise awareness on radiation protection (Action 8)
- establishing a dialogue with the industry regarding improvement of radiological equipment, the use of up-to-date equipment (e.g. dose management systems) and the harmonisation of exposure indicators (Action 11).
