IAEA and ESR to cooperate on justification and appropriate use of imaging
On October 26-28, 2017 the ESR co-organised an IAEA
(International Atomic Energy Agency) workshop in Zagreb on
justification and appropriate use of imaging as part of a fruitful
collaboration on issues of common interest. The workshop, led by
the IAEA's Radiation Protection of Patients Unit (RPOP), allowed
the ESR to present its ongoing work on justification, imaging
referral guidelines and clinical decision support to radiologists
and officials from 18 European countries.
Under the umbrella of EuroSafe imaging project, the ESR
offers guidance, educational materials and various tools to its
individual and institutional members to promote best practice and
help them meet the requirements of European legislation and
international guidelines on radiation protection.
In addition, to address gaps in the availability of imaging
referral guidelines and the lack of guideline use in Europe, the
ESR has developed ESR iGuide, a clinical decision support
(CDS) system for European imaging referral guidelines, in
cooperation with the American College of Radiology (ACR) and
National Decision Support Company (NDSC).
