RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

The new IDOR book 'HELP - Emergency Medical Imaging' was published on November 8 as downloadable pdf and has already been downloaded more than 1,500 times within the first five days. Under the editorial leadership of Professor Robert F. Dondelinger from Liège, Belgium, 42 authors from all over the world contributed to the book, with further chapters provided by the ESR's EuroSafe Imaging initiative, the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) and the ESR Patient Advisory Group. In addition, 30 interviews with emergency radiology experts from different countries, conducted by the ESR, have been published on the IDOR webpage.

On social media, the International Day saw tremendous feedback throughout various platforms. The IDOR Facebook page, which shared a variety of events, fan posts and general IDOR information, attracted 7,800 likes on IDOR related posts and gained over 2,000 new fans with a peak during the days before the actual event.

On Twitter, which has traditionally seen the biggest buzz for IDOR related social media activities, 5,200 tweets including the hashtag IDOR 2017 have been tweeted, generating a user feed reach of 24.3 million. In comparison to last year, the IDOR hashtag appeared three million times more often in Twitter users' feeds.

For the fourth time, the ESR organised a Thunderclap campaign for IDOR 2017. Thunderclap is a tool for amplifying a message on social media. By supporting the Thunderclap, users agreed to share the same message at the same time as everyone else on their Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr pages, giving the message much more prominence and priority on social media feeds than individual posts. The Thunderclap message was released on November 8, 14:00 CET by 423 supporters to a combined audience of 667,537 people.

To bring the IDOR 2017 main topic emergency radiology to the public's attention, the ESR has created a mini website acting as an online emergency room to show examples of emergency cases, with images and explanations of how radiologists' expertise comes into play. Content and cases were developed in cooperation with Dr. Elizabeth Dick, President-Elect of the European Society of Emergency Radiology. Users can explore four body regions – abdomen, chest, head & neck, limbs – with three different cases/modalities for each region.
