About 14th EURADOS Winter School

The Winter School will present an overview of our current understanding of the scientific evidence for radiation risks and potential outcomes, including congenital malformations, growth retardation, loss of pregnancy, mental retardation and cancer risks to the unborn child and pregnant patient. Ionising radiation from all sources will be presented with additional focus on specific situations such as exposure to pregnant workers, medical exposures (radiotherapy and diagnostic imaging) and emergency situations. The assessment of effective dose and committed effective dose as well as the protective measures to mitigate risk to all developmental stages from conceptus to the breastfed infant will be discussed. Finally, counseling and communicating the risk to a pregnant woman, along with examples of situation in various European countries will be presented.

This course has been accredited by EBAMP as CPD event for Medical Physicists at EQF Level 7 and awarded 14 CPD credit points.
