The MEDIRAD Project aims to enhance the scientific bases and clinical practice of radiation protection in the medical field and thereby addresses the need to better understand and evaluate the health effects of low-dose ionising radiation exposure from diagnostic and therapeutic imaging and from off-target effects in radiotherapy.
This project has received funding from the Euratom research and training programme 2014-2018 under grant agreement No 755523.
