Appropriate and safe use of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy with infection control measures considered in addition to standard radiation protection procedures
This document is based on Input to the World Health Authority (WHO) Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) meeting facing COVID-19 held March 27th, 2020 and development of various WHO/IAEA Technical documents including 'WHO-Rapid Advice Clinical Guide on appropriate use of radiological imaging in COVID-19' and IAEA/WHO Technical brief for Nuclear Medicine in COVID-19. It is available on the ISRRT Website (https://www.isrrt.org/full-guideline-protective-measures). It is edited and compiled by A.Stewart Whitley, Director of Professional Practice - International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists(ISRRT) following valuable input from many radiography expert contributors who are acknowledged in the document.
