CEN/TC 470
Quality along the patient pathway in medical imaging

Standardization in the field of medical imaging and radio diagnostics. It includes medical imaging for diagnostic and interventional purposes. The objective is to ensure quality and safety in patient care. It covers procedures using ionizing and electromagnetic radiation or ultrasonography, performed on the human being, in person or remotely (telemedicine). This standardization is intended for all medical imaging structures. Excluded are: - radiotherapy, - conventional optical imaging (such as endoscopy or fundus), - photography of patients or lesions, - anatomical pathology. Standardization related to equipment and radiation protection is also excluded as it already covered by IEC (IEC TC/SC 62B 'Diagnostic imaging equipment' and IEC TC/SC 62C 'Equipment for radiotherapy, nuclear medicine and radiation dosimetry') and ISO/TC 85 and CEN/TC 430 'Nuclear energy, nuclear technologies, and radiological protection'.
