WHO has just launched a publication entitled “Communicating Radiation Risks in Pediatric Imaging - Information to Support Health Care Discussions about Benefit and Risk”. The timely release of this practical communication tool provides useful guidance to health care providers about how to discuss radiation risks associated with pediatric imaging procedures.
The tool is written in English and includes executive summaries in Arabic, Chinese, English French, Spanish, Russian and Portuguese. Additional to the complete set, individual files for Chapters 1, 2, and 3 are also available. Practitioners will find the well-crafted messages handy and practical in daily practice.
