  1. TRAINING AND CULTURAL PROBLEMS TO BE SOLVED IN THE MEDICAL AREA FOR IMPROVING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ALARA PRINCIPLE

  2. 5000 Medical Physicists

  3. ALARA Risks Benefits

  4. Difficulties implementing ALARA in Medical Areas • The possible acuteness of patients requires very fast decision making regarding the use of radiation. • Rapid change of the radiation technology utilised in hospitals. • The work force dynamics in Hospitals is submitted to frequent changes of destination and activity.

  5. Yearly Use of Radiation in Medical Areas in the World • > 2 billions X ray exams. • > 30 Millions of Nuclear Medicine Procedures. • > 6 Millions of Radiotherapy Actions.

  6. Digital versus Analogical Radiology

  7. ALARA and the Education and Training in RP ALARA TIME DISTANCE SHIELDING E&T in RP

  8. ALARA RESTS ON E&T • Health Workers E&T • Public • Voluntaries • Medical Physicists

  9. ALARA RESTS ON THE QC OF THE EQUIPMENTS Quality Control • Medical Physicists

  10. Diversity of Health Workers involved in ALARA • Doctors or physicians • Specialist doctors (Radiological, Nuclear Medicine, Radiotherapists physicians) • Nurses • Radiographers, Nuclear Medicine technicians, Radiotherapy technicians. • Service personnel • Administrators • Medical Physicists.

  11. Specialist doctors relevant for ALARA implementation • Cardiologists, traumatologists, urologists, pain doctors, pulmonologists • Specialists in Radiology, Nuclear Medicine or Radiotherapy • Specialists in Vascular or Interventional Radiology or in Cardiac Haemodynamics.

  12. E&T for Health Workers should be: ? • Comprehensible • Practical

  13. E&T to the Public • Radioactive Waste from Hospitals • Inside Hospitals • Voluntaries to exposition for the well-being of patients

  14. ALARA can be implemented easily to patients • Clear Benefits if justification principle is applied • Regardless, dosimetry calculations or measurements are needed Risks Benefits

  15. ALARA and Radiation Risks in Hospitals

  16. Improving the implementation of ALARA in Hospitals Others MPE

  17. ALARA and Medical Physicists The qualified medical physicist has a UNIQUE competence and carries a range of responsibilities for equipment, techniques, methods used in the clinical environment and for E&T in big hospitals

  18. MPE as QE in RP in Europe

  19. DIRECTIVE 97/43 EURATOM (30th june 1997) Experts in Medical Physics have the responsibility to carry out or be in charge of the Radiological Protection of patients …. And Health workers, the public and visitors to big hospitals

  20. TRAINING AND CULTURAL PROBLEMS TO BE SOLVED IN THE MEDICAL AREA FOR IMPROVING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ALARA PRINCIPLE THANK YOU
