MEDIRAD – Implications of medical low dose radiation exposure

The MEDIRAD project submitted to the Horizon 2020 EURATOM work programme kicked off in Barcelona on June 27, with over 70 scientists from 33 organisations and 14 countries. This European Commission-funded €10 million project will significantly improve the science base and practice of radiation protection in the medical field. It is coordinated by the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR). Read more here.

EuroSafe Imaging webinar – Tips & Tricks in CT

The ESR and EuroSafe Imaging are pleased to announce a free webinar jointly organised with the IAEA scheduled for August 29, 2017, at 15:00 (CEST).

Spectral Photon Counting CT: European project NON-INDUSTRY sponsored – your participation in an 8-minutes survey

Spectral Photon Counting CT (SPCCT) is a new high spatial resolution imaging technology under development. To analyse the cost-effectiveness, current clinical practices of diagnosing and treating suspected MI patients need to be identified.
Considering the relevance of this initiative, we encourage you to respond to the survey below about acute MI imaging.
