World Radiography Education Trust Foundation  

WRETF Trustees are pleased to announce the very first appointment of a Trustee intern. Sophie Durrans, a graduate currently working for the Wellcome Trust as a Communications and Engagement Graduate trainee, joined us in November on a one year internship. Although Sophie has no experience of, nor connection with the radiology community, she has skills in communication, website knowledge and social media and experience of fundraising that the Trust feels it can put to very good use. Sophie will work with Trustees in specific areas, her work being co-ordinated by the Honorary Secretary – Sue Marchant. Sophie may well apply to become a Trustee in due course. Having someone involved with the Trust who has no previous connection to its work is a departure, but all Trustees welcome this new venture. Even at this early stage Trustees are thinking ahead as to  how this venture can develop in the future. wretf.org

  • BONN CALL FOR ACTION – Justification and authorisation of planned Medical exposures.

    The new Radiation Protection and Safety of Radiation Sources: International Basic Safety Standards (BSS) was published by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as General Safety Requirements Part 3 in July 2014. 

    In terms of Justification of medical exposures the BSS covers four areas of responsibilities for the protection and safety of patients. It states that the person or organisation responsible for facilities and activities that give rise to radiation risk shall have the prime responsibility for protection and safety.  Paragraphs 2.40 and 2.41 state that other parties such as the referring medical practitioner, medical physicist, and Medical Radiation Technologists (MRT) (radiographer), shall also have specified responsibilities.

    Justification can be explained as the process of weighing the expected benefits of an exposure against the possible detriment of the associated dose. The benefit or versus detriment may relate to the individual and/or to society as a whole.
