New radiation safety legislation in 2018 - are you ready?

2017 will be the fourth edition of the Radiation Protection Pavilion and this year’s aim will be to help members get ready for the EU’s new radiation safety directive [Basic Safety Standards Directive 2013/59/EURATOM], which will have to be implemented in all EU member states by February 2018.

Take a seat in the Pavilion and take part in a range of exciting activities proposed by the Subcommittee, and kindly supported by select industry partners:

  • Listen to talks by world-leading experts and learn more about the new EU Directive on Basic Safety Standards in radiation protection
  • Take home tailored informational material for IRs
  • Discuss the latest protective technologies with select industry partners​

 

 

Let’s talk about radiation safety

Interventional radiologists are exposed to high levels of radiation in daily practice, and so face particular health risks. Through its short history, the Radiation Protection Pavilion has seen a very successful campaign to create awareness of the often neglected issue of lens opacities.

Out of the 248 eye-checks completed, we discovered that 45 participants had opacities - that's 18.2%! Although eye-checks will no longer occur at the Pavilion, we still strongly encourage members to continue to have their eyes checked regularly.

 

Make sure to visit the Pavilion in Copenhagen and learn more about how to best protect yourself, your patients and your team.
