Patient safety in medical imaging: a joint paper of the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS).
European Society of Radiology; European Federation of Radiographer Societies. Insights Imaging. 2019;10:45.
Numerous factors affect safe imaging practice, including potential harms associated with radiation, staffing demands, and patient physical and psychological well-being. This policy statement provides multidisciplinary insights on safety themes in radiology that go beyond the core concern of inappropriate radiation exposure. The authors recommend tactics to reduce the risks related to data protection, service environment, teamwork, burnout, and training.
