AsiaSafe www.AsiaSafe.org is an initiative by the AOSR to establish radiation safety culture and ensuring the appropriate use of radiation in medicine. The main objective of the initiative is to raise awareness among health professionals and to enhance their practice by providing recommendations and guidance on all aspects of protection from ionising radiation.
AsiaSafe was mooted by the AOSR council in 2018. The official launching of AsiaSafe will be held during the 19th AOCR, 2021.
AsiaSafe is a member of the International Society of Radiology Quality and Safety Alliance (ISRQSA) which is the alliance created by the International Society of Radiology (ISR) to unite radiation safety campaigns.
AsiaSafe’s planned activities will focus on enhancing awareness with safety standards, policies, procedures and activities that support the implementation of justification and optimisation principles in medical imaging and therapy. We affirm the Bonn Call for Action, published by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
AsiaSafe is cooperating with the IAEA, WHO, European Society of Radiology, EuroSafe Imaging, ISR, Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), and other regional organizations.
We look forward to collaborating with all Asia Oceania countries to enhance radiological safety.
