Recommendations guide for the correct prescription's tests of diagnosis by image; Guia de recomendaciones para la correcta solicitud de pruebas de diagnostico por imagen

Abstract

The purpose of this guide is to protect the health of the population against the dangers of ionizing radiation. The unjustified studies involving exposure to radiation unnecessarily increases the cancer risk in the exposed population. Medical irradiations are the most important contribution to human exposure to ionizing radiation from artificial character. Since statistics indicate a growing trend in the number of practices as well as the number of facilities, the quality of those practices, its justification and its optimization are today a relevant topic to scientific societies and regulatory agencies. Since the adoption of the directive 97/43/EURATOM, and the realization of the Conference of Malaga most European countries have implemented action plans for radiation protection of patients, including the search for consensus on the optimization dose criteria and justification for the indication of the examinations. An example is the PR/118 guide for diagnosis studies requests. In this framework, two Conferences on Radiation Protection of Patient were held in our country in which 'Working Groups' were organized on the following topics: Radiodiagnosis, Radiotherapy, Nuclear Medicine and Radioprotection of the Pregnant Woman. Systematic actions that received strong institutional support of the Argentine Society of Radiology began and ended with the elaboration of  More>>

[Spanish] El objetivo de esta Guia es la proteccion de la salud de la poblacion frente a los riesgos derivados de las radiaciones ionizantes. La realizacion injustificada de estudios que impliquen exposicion a la radiacion aumenta innecesariamente el riesgo de cancer en la poblacion expuesta. Las irradiaciones medicas son la contribucion mas importante a la exposicion humana a las radiaciones ionizantes de caracter artificial. Ya que las estadisticas indican una tendencia creciente en el numero de practicas asi como la cantidad de instalaciones, la calidad de esas practicas, su justificacion y su optimizacion son hoy un tema relevante para las sociedades cientificas y los organismos reguladores. A partir de la adopcion de la Directiva 97/43/EURATOM, y la realizacion de la Conferencia de Malaga la mayoria de los paises europeos han implementado planes de accion para la proteccion radiologica del paciente, incluyendo la busqueda de consenso en relacion con la optimizacion de dosis y los criterios de justificacion para la indicacion de los examenes. Un ejemplo de ello es la guia PR/118 para la solicitud de estudios de diagnostico. En este marco, se llevaron a cabo en nuestro pais dos Jornadas sobre Proteccion Radiologica del Paciente (PRP) donde se organizaron 'Grupos de Trabajo' en Radiodiagnostico, Radioterapia, Medicina Nuclear y Radioproteccion de la Mujer Gestante, y se iniciaron actividades sistematicas que recibieron un fuerte apoyo institucional de la Sociedad Argentina de Radiologia, y concluyeron con la elaboracion de un 'Programa de Proteccion Radiologica del Paciente' que esta siendo implementando.}
