Optimisation of Radiation Protection For (Paediatric) Patients
Several initiatives, like Image Gently and Image Wisely, have emerged in recent years to promote optimisation of radiation protection of patients. The focus is mostly but not exclusively on paediatric patients, and mostly but not exclusively in medical imaging. However, there are contrary views on the subject as well, for example a 2017 paper in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine. IRPA encourages continued debate on this subject, but also endorses initiatives that promote optimisation of radiation protection of patients, workers, and the public.
