The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
October 17-21, 2016, Durham, NC, USA
The IAEA organized a scientific group visit for 17 senior radiology professionals from nine countries (Armenia, Czech, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia). The one-week event included lectures, demonstrations, group sessions, visits to clinical areas and discussions in different clinical imaging fields. Visitors included radiology department chairs, radiation technologists and lead diagnostic medical physicists. Dr. Rehani gave eight presentations that covered safety and quality in imaging with ionizing radiation and safety-relevant demonstrations on the interplay of dose, image quality and patient size in the context of CT, fluoroscopy and radiography.
