Get ready for the Radiation Protection Pavilion in Copenhagen!
Following the great success of the third Radiation Protection Pavilion at CIRSE 2016, the Radiation Protection Subcommittee is delighted to announce that the fourth Radiation Protection Pavilion - an interactive awareness campaign on radiation protection and dose management in interventional radiology - will be held at CIRSE's next Annual Meeting in Copenhagen.
Through its short history, the Radiation Protection Pavilion has campaigned with eye checks as a concrete way to demonstrate the need for safety. We have had a total number of 248 eyechecks, from which 45 participants (18.2% of the total) had opacities. 2017 will be the fourth edition of this initiative 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.
Let’s talk about radiation safety
Interventional radiologists are exposed to high levels of radiation in daily practice, and so face particular health risks. Congress delegates will have the opportunity to test their skills and knowledge 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
• Take home tailored informational
material for IRs
• Discuss the latest protective technologies with
select industry partners
Make sure to visit the Pavilion in Copenhagen and learn more about how to best protect yourself, your patients and your team.
