The exposure to ionizing radiation caused by medical imaging is non-negligibleIt is therefore imperative, from a public health perspective, to minimize this exposure and to have a better understanding of its biological effects. The MEDIRAD[i] project, funded by the EURATOM[ii] program, targets multiple factors relevant to low dose radiation caused by medical imaging modalities using an approach that combines many foundational aspects of imaging (physics, biology, epidemiology, image quality). This project includes several experimental tasks during which images will be acquired using different radiological and nuclear medicine modalities, and for which the absorbed radiation doses will be subsequently calculated using several methods.
The goal of the presented work is to develop an informatics service that will provide all members of the MEDIRAD consortium with a platform to share acquired images, along with the associated dosimetric data pertaining to the radiation resulting from the procedure.
