Radiation protection in medicine: There is still lots of work to be done

Medical radiation is a double-edged sword: from a diagnostic perspective, it allows us to look inside the human body, while it can also be used to treat cancer. However, each use exposes patients to radiation, which in turn can pose health risks and should, therefore, be avoided. This is where the European joint research program MEDIRAD comes in.
