Radiological Safety and Quality: Paradigms in Leadership and Innovation
by Lawrence Lau (Editor), Kwan-Hoong Ng (Editor)
Radiological Safety and Quality – Paradigms in Leadership and Innovation is a multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial collaboration by international experts and leaders from academic institutions, radiology practices, professional organizations, regulatory authorities, UN and international agencies. Established principles and new concepts, challenges and opportunities, and examples of leadership and innovations are discussed to raise awareness, share experience and facilitate development of facility-based or system-wide improvements in radiation safety, quality radiology, and patient care by procedure justification, optimization of protection and imaging data, and incident minimization. The 26 chapters by 53 experts and 11 messages from international organizations and agencies convey a common theme: there is no single panacea to improve radiological safety and quality but on- going leadership, innovation, collaboration, and stakeholder participation are needed.
