MEDIRAD Project launches Recommendations to enhance medical radiation protection



EFRS is pleased to inform you that today the MEDIRAD project launches its science-based Recommendations to enhance the protection of patients and medical professionals exposed to low doses of ionising radiation. The recommendations draw from research conducted by the 34 project partners and from a sustained dialogue with over 80 stakeholder organisations and are targeted at the scientific and clinical communities as well as to policy makers.

EFRS enhances and thanks the work of all radiographers involved in this project.

A special thanks to Anders Widmark, from Norway, as the EFRS representative on the MEDIRAD Stakeholder Advisory Board, Jonathan McNulty and Shane Foley, representing University College Dublin, and Graciano Paulo and Joana Santos, representing Coimbra Health School.

The recommendations as well as accompanying material, including a policy brief and info graphic, are freely available at
