A high-level overview of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Adverse Outcome Pathway Programme.
- MedicineInternational journal of radiation biology
This paper provides the radiation community with a high-level overview of the OECD AOP Development Programme, including examples of application using knowledge gleaned from the field of chemical toxicology, and their work towards regulatory implementation.
Duty of candour and the definition of moderate harm for radiation overexposure and exposures much greater than intended in diagnostic radiology.
- MedicineThe British journal of radiology
Some pragmatic proposals for numerical patient dose thresholds that could be taken as broadly corresponding to the definition of moderate harm required to trigger the duty of candour are made.
Computed tomography and patient risk: Facts, perceptions and uncertainties
- Medicine, PhysicsWorld journal of radiology
New image reconstruction techniques that reduce radiation dose have been developed in recent years with promising results and use iterative reconstruction algorithms to attain diagnostic quality images with reduced image noise at lower radiation doses.
Solid cancer risk dependence on the Pasquill–Gifford atmospheric stability classes in a radiological event
- Environmental ScienceRadiation and environmental biophysics
This work suggests that the relative cancer risk and atmospheric stability classes are linked by differences in the TEDE, which may support triage, because it adds additional information on the potentially affected population at the early stages of an emergency response.

Adverse outcome pathway: a path toward better data consolidation and global co-ordination of radiation research
- Environmental ScienceInternational journal of radiation biology
The Rad/Chem AOP joint topical group was formed on June 1, 2021 and will specifically engage, promote, and implement the use of the AOP framework to organize and evaluate mechanistic knowledge relevant to the protection of human and ecosystem health from radiation.
Statement of the Italian Association of Medical Physics (AIFM) task group on radiation dose monitoring systems
- Medicine, PhysicsInsights into Imaging
The AIFM statement about radiation dose monitoring systems (RDMSs) is reported summarizing the different critical points of the systems related to Medical Physicist Expert (MPE) activities before, during, and after their clinical implementation.

A REVIEW OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF RADIATION PROTECTION WHEN APPLIED TO THE PATIENT IN DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY
- Medicine, PhysicsRadiation protection dosimetry
A review of the role and relevance of the principles of radiation protection of the patient in diagnostic radiology as specified by ICRP has been undertaken and the importance of defined diagnostic outcomes in any effective radiation protection strategy is highlighted.
