MEDIRAD - Work Package 2 focusing on dose evaluation and optimisation in medical imaging

The Horizon 2020 MEDIRAD project on implications of medical low dose radiation exposure coordinated by EIBIR was launched in June 2017 to enhance the scientific bases and practice of radiation protection in the medical field. MEDIRAD Work Package 2 aims at developing novel methodologies to reduce patient and staff radiation dose and potential radiation-related risks of cancer and non-cancer outcomes from chest imaging while maintaining or improving diagnostic information from existing and emerging techniques.

Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM)

DIAM is a project for assessing IT systems in radiology departments developed by the ESR and HIMSS. With IBM Watson, the first company has signed a partnership agreement to deliver DIAM-related services in the UK. Healthcare organisations can receive their DIAM Score and Gap Report (free of charge in Europe) after making the DIAM assessment. Collaborate with us and benefit from the project’s unique advantages.
