ESR/EFRS Joint Paper on Patient Safety in Medical Imaging

We are excited to announce the first ever joint publication between the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS)!

Published in both Insights into Imaging and Radiography, the ESR and EFRS aim to highlight the importance of patient safety in medical imaging and the fundamental roles that radiologists and radiographers play in ensuring the physical and psychological well-being of their patients.

A respective ESR/EFRS joint session on Patient Safety in Medical Imaging was held during ECR 2019 and can be viewed via ECR Online.

ESR/EFRS - Patient safety in medical imaging

Saturday, March 2, 16:00 - 17:30
Moderators: A. Brady (Cork/IE), J. McNulty (Dublin/IE)


Clinical Audit and the ESR Clinical Audit Tool

Clinical audit is inextricably linked to quality and, if correctly and professionally conducted, a powerful tool to improve patient care, experience and outcome. 

The ESR Clinical audit tool is designed to facilitate the development of local clinical audit across the spectrum of the services provided by clinical radiology and support radiology departments in establishing an developing their clinical audit programme.

The ESR Clinical Audit tool has been published under the name of Esperanto.

Further details are available here.

EU & international affairs

The ESR and EFRS have joined efforts in various European Commission funded projects. Recently, the societies have jointly contributed as project coordinator or consortium member to the implementation of the below projects. New endeavours are continuously evaluated and pursued.

  • Evaluation of national actions regarding the transposition of Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom’s requirements in the medical sector - BSS Transposition (2016-2017)
  • European Diagnostic Reference Levels for Paediatric Imaging - PiDRL (2013-2016)
  • Referral Guidelines for Imaging (2011-2013)
  • Medical Radiation Protection Education and Training - A study on the implementation of the Medical Exposure Directive’s requirements within the European Union - MEDRAPET (2010-2013)

The EFRS is a shareholder organisation of the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR).

The European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research (EURAMED) is a joint initiative of EIBIR. The EFRS is represented in the alliance by Graciano Paulo.
