Every year on November 8th, the International Day of Radiology (#IDoR2023) is celebrated. This event is organized by national radiological societies and is a joint initiative of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), and the American College of Radiology (ACR). On this day, healthcare professionals in the field of medical imaging worldwide commemorate the existence of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, a major discovery that earned him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901.
This initiative aims to highlight the role of imaging in modern medicine and to enlighten the public about the importance of radiology in patient safety. National radiological societies and their subspecialty societies will organize their own activities, such as conferences, open days, social media communications, and press events.
This year’s theme: Radiologists and Radiographers supporting patients
This year’s focus is Healthcare professionals’ role in supporting patients. In this context, Medsquare highlights the contribution of the DACS Radiation Dose Monitor (RDM) for patients. RDM makes it possible to collect, archive and share all of the data necessary for the centralized management of the dose delivered to the patient, in radiology and nuclear medicine. Since 2012, RDM has established itself as an essential tool in radiation protection and the dose reduction process. Indeed, to better protect patients, the RDM solution offers key benefits that allow healthcare professionals to:
Thanks to RDM, healthcare professionals can collect a wealth of patient dose information and increase protection against radiation through justification and optimization. Thus, the whole objective of the solution is linked to radiation protection, understanding and risk assessment – especially in the context of repeated radiation examinations. RDM helps healthcare professionals take better care of patients, thanks to tools and indicators that, with a single click, show the caregivers the next actions that they can take, always with a view to improvement.
