ISRRT International Society of Radiographers & Radiological Technologists
The ISRRT has chosen this year's theme for World Radiography day as "PRECISION AND COMPASION RADIOGRAPHERS QUALITIES.'' As professionals, we make a difference because we understand the cornerstone of the principle of radiation protection for our patients asJustification and Optimization.In our everyday workenvironment,we understand that the imaging team is the Radiographer, Radiologist and Medical Physicist and that we all have a vital role to play in dose reduction and radiation safety for our patients. Also, as radiographers we know that the team approach to Justification and Optimization is how our patients have the best success with their care. The radiographer’s qualities for precision and compassion during the patients visit contribute to the team approach and ensure that the principle of radiation protection is in place.
The ISRRT have a long tradition of being present at the ECR, and for the 2019 congress, we are invited by the ESR to again contribute to the scientific program by organising an ISRRT Meets Africa session. The event, which shall be held on Friday, March 1, 2019/16:00-17:30, will cover a wide range of topics delivered by radiographers from across the African continent.
Dear Council Members, the ISRRT Board of Directors has diligently been working to represent the radiographers global voice at numerous international meetings and workshops around the globe over the last 3months. You can find updates on these meetings as well as outcomes...
Following to my previous post in August 2018 I am pleased to say that following feedback for colleagues though the ISRRT network of experts that we have given feedback to the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) on two further consultation documents:-
