Press And Media

The MEDIRAD Project will have a significant impact on the scientific bases and clinical practice of radiation protection in the medical field. Keeping all stakeholders informed and up-to-date is also a key aim of the project and a range of press and dissemination material will be created at each stage of the project to announce the latest results.
