Editor's Note - Radiation Protection in Medicine
The February issue of Health Physics presents the work from the 2018 meeting of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP). Outgoing NCRP President John Boice - who passes the baton to incoming NCRP President Kathryn Held on January 1, 2019 - summarizes the work of the various NCRP Program Area Committees in 2018, and presents the NCRP’s vision for the future. This year, the NCRP meeting focused on Radiation Protection Responsibility in Medicine. The papers in this important issue include consideration of the doses resulting from imaging procedures, the risks and benefits of these procedures, and technological advances. These issues are certainly on the minds of members of the public, so I encourage all our readers to browse the February issue and catch up on the latest developments in this area.
