DoseWise RADIOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2014 COMPETITION

Thank you all for your enthusiastic participation and submissions to be considered for the Radiographer of the Year award.

Amongst all the great submissions we received from you, the panel of the International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists (ISRRT) and Philips selected the winner: Sonyia Mc Fadden, currently lecturer Diagnostic Radiography at the University of Ulster, Belfast, UK.

Her response showed a very promising improvement on a systemic level regarding pediatric diagnostic dose reference levels. Pediatric exposure is of the highest concerns as these patients are the most sensitive to radiation, and although the benefit of the procedure outweighs the risk, it is incumbent upon the radiographer to use the least amount of dose necessary for a diagnostic image.

Her surveys showed wide variation in pediatric imaging parameters among users in the UK/Ireland and sharing these best practices can lead to a quick improvement among caregivers.

We congratulate Sonyia Mc Fadden with winning the award, she receives the opportunity to speak at the 18th ISRRT World Congress in Helsinki, Finland (June 12th to June 15th 2014) and share her findings.
