BJR publishes special feature on radiation protection

 21 October 2021


BJR, the flagship journal of the British Institute of Radiology, has published a collection of articles entitled Contemporary issues in radiation protection in medical imaging, guest edited by Professor Madan Rehani (Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, USA) and Dr Zoe Brady (Alfred Health and Monash University, Melbourne, Australia).

Professor Madan Rehani said “This is a very timely special feature that contains a collection of articles that deal with contemporary issues at hand that are likely to shape the direction of patient radiation protection. It is not to be missed!”

Radiation protection has always been a central aspect to medical imaging, but its importance has varied in emphasis over the years. Both staff and patient radiation protection have gained prominence in time and remain an essential priority.

The article collection explores the latest research in the clinical arena in the field of medical imaging and compiles the most current research on many topical areas. This special feature will be an important point for reference for anyone with an interest in radiation protection.

Dr Zoe Brady said “This special feature is essential reading for any medical professionals interested in radiation protection. The articles cover vital topics such as recurrent imaging, cumulative doses, patient shielding, staff lens doses and protection, artificial intelligence in radiation protection, and more”.
