Radiology of Childhood Abuse: Nandish Shah, Egial Shalaby Rana, Prof. Dorothy Bulas
AFROSAFE is a campaign made by PACORI and radiation workers in Africa. Its main objective is to unite with a common goal to identify and address issues arising from radiation protection in medicine in Africa.
Canada Safe Imaging has been formed to address this need for a national strategy and action plan as it relates to radiation safety for medical imaging care in Canada.
EuroSafe Imaging is the European Society of Radiology’s latest flagship initiative to promote quality and safety in medical imaging. The mission of EuroSafe Imaging is to support and strengthen medical radiation protection across Europe following a holistic, inclusive approach.
The mission of LatinSafe is to promote through education a safe practice of diagnostic imaging in Latin America with emphasis in radioprotection of patients, and to contribute to enhance the awareness of its importance among radiologists, technicians, and other professionals involved in radiology, referring physicians, patients and parents and in the entire community.

Report from Dr. Kassa Darge, Children’s Hospital, Philadelphia, Sept 2015: Here is a first series of 6 Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) webinars organized in collaboration with the Radiological Society of South Africa (RSSA) and the South African Society of Pediatric Imaging (SASPI). The emphasis was placed on pediatric radiology in commemoration of the International Day of Radiology (IDoR) - dedicated to pediatric radiology in 2015.
The recordings of the webinars are available on our Radiology SharePoint, via these links.
Further discussions are going on with SASPI regarding the organization of similar pediatric radiology webinar series in the near future.
From the American College of Radiology (ACR)
Developed and offered by the ACR, the Child-sizing CT Dose: Optimizing Patient Care through Quality Improvement case provides a 360° overview of the latest concepts and practices in radiation dose monitoring for child CT scans. Whether you are a general or pediatric radiologist, radiologic technologist or medical physicist, this case-based learning activity will provide you with an inside look at concepts related to radiation risk and the relationship of image quality to patient dose. And as an added benefit, participants will earn continuing education credits – free of charge.
Important Note: While there is no charge to participate in this educational activity, for CE credit tracking and reporting purposes you will be redirected to the ACR website to log in (or create a login) and add the free module to your shopping cart for immediate access.
