“The Commission report, published in 2021, spotlights dramatic inequalities in imaging resources and outlines a compelling health economics case for countries, illustrating that scaling up access to medical imaging for cancer patients would yield substantial health and economic benefits,” stated May Abdel-Wahab, Director of the Division of Human Health, Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications.

Key highlights of the agreement include:

Outreach and advocacy to collaborate on awareness-raising of global healthcare inequalities, especially but not only for cancer imaging.
Capacity building towards enhancing the skills and expertise of healthcare professionals in radiology through educational programs, conferences, and knowledge-sharing initiatives.
Increased access to radiology networks, educational materials, and global learning programs offered by RSNA for continuous professional development.
Collaboration in research and innovation, promoting the exchange of best practices and the development of strategic frameworks to address evolving healthcare challenges.
“Our alliance with RSNA is not just about cooperation – it is about a mutual dedication to improving healthcare outcomes and ensuring that quality medical imaging services reach every corner of the globe,” concluded Lisa Stevens, Director of the Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy, IAEA Technical Cooperation Department.
