The world's largest radiation oncology society and the US government have each called for measures to enhance the safety of medical radiation and to reduce unnecessary exposure in patients.
The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has committed to a patient protection plan that will improve safety and quality and reduce the chances of medical errors when radiation is used to treat cancer. Meanwhile, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will launch an initiative to promote the safe use of imaging devices for medical use, to support informed clinical decision making, and to increase patients' awareness of their own exposure.
