The Mater Private Hospital is delighted to announce that it has been awarded with a Eurosafe Imaging Star award consisting of a 5 star rating. This makes it the first private hospital in Ireland to be recognised with such an accreditation.
Radiation is often viewed as dangerous, however, it is very much a part of our every day lives and we can derive benefits from it. It is an essential part of the medical tools that help Physicians to diagnose diseases and disorders, for example in the use of many radiology tests like CT scanning, molecular imaging and x-rays. There are offcourse risks in the use of radiation for these treatments, however, it is about maintaining safe practice in the use of such testing methods.
By being awarded a 5 star rating, the Mater Private Hospital secures its dedication to promoting best practice in the protection of its patients to the highest standards against the risks involved in the use of radiation.
EuroSafe Imaging is the European Society of Radiology’s flagship initiative to promote quality and safety in medical imaging. Its mission it to strengthen and support medical radiation protection across Europe.
