EuroSafe Imaging celebrates 5 year success in radiation protection

share Share
An interesting line-up of activities is scheduled during the forthcoming European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2019 to celebrate EuroSafe Imaging's five years of success in medical radiation protection. The programme aims to ensure that the issue of radiation protection in medical imaging is front and centre throughout the congress, organisers said. 

The ECR 2019 will be held at the Austria Centre Vienna (ACV), from 27 February – 3 March 2019. The congress features seven scientific sessions that are categorised as EuroSafe Imaging sessions, while a number of related sessions are promoted as part of the campaign. These sessions highlight the main focus areas of EuroSafe Imaging’s activities in promoting quality and safety in medical imaging. 

Topics to be discussed are: 

- Cardiovascular effects after radiotherapy for breast cancer: the European MEDIRAD Project 

- Diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) based on clinical indication 

- Improving radiation protection in medical imaging in low- and middle-income countries: past actions and future directions 

- Advanced clinical dosimetry in interventional radiology 

- Getting the balance right: radiation risk and imaging benefit in paediatric procedures 

- CT radiation risk in children: an overview 

- Artificial intelligence and radiation protection 

This year the congress will again feature the EuroSafe Imaging Lounge – a dedicated place for learning about the campaign’s achievements, ongoing activities and planned endeavours. In addition, EuroSafe Imaging’s partners in promoting medical radiation protection will be presented in the lounge. 

Dedicated "Coffee & Talk" sessions will offer short lectures and discussions in a relaxed atmosphere next to the EuroSafe Imaging Lounge (Room Coffee & Talk 2). These sessions will discuss the EuroSafe Imaging campaign’s activities and address the challenges of raising awareness of radiation protection in medical imaging. EuroSafe Imaging will present eight dedicated sessions in this format. 

As in the previous years, the electronic EuroSafe Imaging poster exhibition with over 120 contributions from experts around the world will be accessible in the EuroSafe Imaging Lounge and the ECR Online and EPOS™ Lounge (ACV, 1st floor). Selected EuroSafe Imaging posters will be presented by the authors at the Voice of EPOS (VoE) stage 1 at the ECR 2019. 

EuroSafe Imaging is the ESR's flagship initiative for radiation protection and quality & safety in medical imaging. Launched at the European Congress of Radiology 2014, the campaign has attracted the support of more than 51,400 'Friends of EuroSafe Imaging', including over 280 institutional supporters.

I just got my ex husband back through the help of Dr Nkosi love spells Experts. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr nkosi, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr nkosi. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Nkosi for help now..Here his contact, WhatsApp him: +27820502562 {or} Email him at: [email protected] ,his website:
