World Radiography Education Trust Fund    

The World Radiography Education Trust Fund (WRETF) has changed its name to "World Radiography Educational Trust Foundation" as from 6th January 2015 on which date the UK Charity Commission gave formal approval. The WRETF Trustees feel that this change from the word Fund to Foundation better reflects who they are and what they do.

A bursary scheme is available to assist radiographers, technologists, assistants and teachers in developing countries, either to attend a relevant conference or to visit a training , hospital or other institute to further their knowledge of radiography. Up to 4 bursaries in a year will be made available.

Information and application forms can be found on the website: www.wretf.org

  • CAMRT Advocacy on Isotope Supply

    The issue in brief

    With the planned shutdown of the NRU reactor at Chalk River scheduled for 2016, there has been increased concern and media attention to the potential for isotope shortages in the short and medium term. As Technetium-99m (99mTc) is used in over 80% of nuclear medicine procedures - more than 30 - 40 million examinations worldwide yearly- this product is clearly crucial to the practice of nuclear medicine. Ongoing reliable supply of this critical isotope is under threat. According to a recent OECD report1, "Current global irradiation and processing capacity is predicted to be insufficient over the period analysed for reliable 99Mo/99mTc supply, even with all producers operating under normal conditions…"
