Interventional radiologists are exposed to high levels of radiation in daily practice, and so face particular health risks. Through its short history, the Radiation Protection Pavilion has seen a very successful campaign to create awareness of the often neglected issue of lens opacities.

Getting expert advice

Visitors at the 2018 RPP had the chance to learn about the health hazards linked to occupational radiation exposure listening to one of the various mini talks provided by our subcommittee and industry partners.

Raising Awareness of Radiation Protection

Experts Eliseo Vano, Werner Jaschke and Gabriel Bartal discuss the important changes from the European Basic Safety Standards Directive which entered into force in February 2018.

Exploring state-of-the-art protective technologies

Attendees also had the change to discuss the latest products for protection and dose management with select industry partners, who were on hand to address any questions.
