Canada Safe Imaging (CSI) was formed in 2015 to address the need for a national strategy and action plan as it relates to radiation safety for medical imaging in Canada, based on the recommendations from the Bonn Call-for-Action.
CSI’s vision is:
- To strengthen medical radiation protection in patients and health care workers and foster a culture of radiation safety in healthcare in Canada.
- To develop an action plan relating to radiation safety for medical imaging care in Canada.
- To support evidence-based best practice guidelines.
- To facilitate a strategic approach to conduct scientific inquiry on the effects of radiation on human health.
The Canadian Radiological Foundation (CRF) is offering a $500 Radiation Safety Award which would be attributed to the best poster presentation aligned with a minimum of one of the five main priorities identified by CSI, namely:
- Quality and safety
The Award will be presented during the Awards Ceremony of the 86th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR), April 27 – 30, 2023.
