Abstract. This paper considers the historical evolution of the concept of optimisation of radiation exposures, as commonly expressed by the acronym ALARA, and. Membership provides access to Journal of Radiological Protection, either in hard copy or online. I believe that this book only perpetuates the many myths about the accident effects and has very little basis in sound science. Decision-making is not trivial because many factors influence the strategy and they can be addressed together.

ICRP, Optimization and Decision Making in Radiological Protection. ICRP Publication Ann. ICRP 20 (1). Abstract - The Task Group of Committee 4 was originally established to produce a report on methods of optimizing radiological protection other than cost benefit analysis.

As the work of the Task Group progressed, however, it became clear that it would be more useful to produce a report.

The system for radiological protection recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) is based on three principles: Justification of radiation exposures, optimization of radiation protection (or ALARA1) and application of individual dose limits.

According to ICRP Publication (ICRP, ), optimization of protection is the process by which “the. Optimization and decision-making in radiological protection. A report of a Task Group of Committee 4 of the International Commission on Radiological Protection.

While the debate over the effects of low level radiation is still contentious and unsettled, the sole application of permissible limits to the inferred risks is until presently considered not enough, and a system based on the general principles of justification, optimization and dose limits is required to protect individuals, society as a whole and the : Haydee Domenech.

This timely overview of dose, benefit, and risk in medical imaging explains to readers how to apply this information for informed decision-making that improves patient outcomes. The chapters cover patient and physician perspectives, referral guidelines, appropriateness criteria, and quantifying medical imaging by: 1.

One of the principles of radiation protection,termed the optimization, is the decision aiding approach suggested for implementing the basic recommendation of radiation protection that all exposures be kept As Low As Reasonably Achievable, economic and social.

This document provides guidance for the optimization of radiation protection in the transport of radioactive materials. Optimization is an important consideration in the selection and design of radiation protection systems associated with transport and in the performance of transport operations.

It is however important to remember that case-by-case.

The major rationale for this choice was the fact that NMTs, radiogra-phers and all medical radiation professionals will have radiation protection concerns, in-dependently of the specific set-up (i. nu.e clear cardiology, PET/CT, conventional NM or therapeutic NM).

The EAN Working Group on ALARA Culture has achieved the elaboration of a book on the ALARA principle. Optimization of Radiological Protection - ALARA: A Practical Guidebook intends to give a clear and practical picture of what is ALARA and how to apply it – and in line with the last recommendations and standards from international organizations.

ALARA: A Practical Guidebook. Annals of the ICRP is the authoritative source of recommendations and guidance of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP). It is published by SAGE UKon behalf of ICRP. Annals of the ICRP was established in Previously, ICRP issued its recommendations as individual books or as part of other publications.

The optimization principle is a well established concept in radiological protection. However, the broadening of the principle to a "process" is presented in an unclear and difficult-to-implement framework, if, in fact, this is the broadening that ICRP refers to.

The NRC staff recognizes that some of these concepts go beyond the statements made. Clinicians, students, residents, and professionals in medical physics, biomedical engineering, radiology, oncology, and allied disciplines will find this book an essential resource with the following key features: Discusses risk, benefit, dose optimization, safety, regulation, radiological protection, and shared & informed decision-making.
