A significant portion of the activities of the IAEA is directed towards promoting the safe and peaceful uses of nuclear technology. Nevertheless, the IAEA is still largely perceived as the nuclear watchdog organization in the public’s mind, despite awareness of the important uses radiation applications in areas such as agriculture and human health.
This month the main web site of IAEA is being dedicated to the theme, “Radiation Protection of Patients”, to place more emphasis on this important aspect of the IAEA’s work. The theme includes several multimedia elements, including a number of video and audio interviews and also links to a focus page and an interactive quiz.
After remaining on Home page of www.iaea.org, the theme is available now at focus page at http://www.iaea.org/NewsCenter/Focus/RadiationProtection/index.html
