Radiology, as with other areas of health care, does complex work in which mistakes can cause great harm. In an effort to promote patient safety and efficient health care delivery, radiology departments and hospitals are implementing the values of high-reliability organisations. The healthcare worker’s task is to manage the beneficial use of radiation while protecting the patient from potential hazards.
On its second edition, the Radiological Safety Conference will host healthcare professionals to discuss the risks posed by different types of radiation emissions and radiation-emitting products. It is also to balance the beneficial use of radiation by ensuring that each patient receives the appropriate radiation dose using the appropriate, medically necessary imaging exam at the appropriate time.
