The EuroSafe Imaging Stars initiative has been running since 2016 with the aim of identifying imaging facilities in Europe and beyond that embody best practice in radiation protection and that are committed to putting the principles and concepts of the European Society of Radiology into practice. In addition, the initiative has helped to raise awareness of quality and safety related aspects in radiology, in particular the new requirements of the European Basic Safety Standards Directive (Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom).
The publication of the EuroSafe Imaging Call for action 2018 helped to encourage the growth of the Stars initiative. Action 10 of the Call for Action is to ‘strengthen the EuroSafe Imaging Stars network of imaging centres that embody best practice in radiation protection.’ Supporting the continued growth and development of the EuroSafe Imaging Stars network was a key focus in 2019.
