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).
