Radiation Protection of Patients

September 6, 2013

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is engaged to inform about the safe use of ioning radiation in medicine and to increase radiation protection of patients. 

In order to make progress in patient safety as a whole, an International Action Plan on the Radiological Protection of Patients was developed and approved by the Agency's governing bodies in 2002.

Find more information on how to achieve safer use of radiation in medicine for the benefit of patients on the IAEA website.
