Description

Order code: OP 108

This publication explores organizational and technical aspects of radiology, analyzed within the context of the Pan American Health Organization's strategic and programmatic orientations for 1995-1998. It seeks to strike a balance between basic principles of decentralized health services and the requirements that emerge as advances in medical knowledge are incorporated and applied in various areas of the health services. As a complement to the concepts developed in the text, the appendices in the second half of the book present examples of equipment specifications and legislation on practices and specialties, and provide information on technical aspects of quality assurance and radiation protection.

Politicians, administrators, planners, and health professionals, as well as the ministries of health, will find this publication useful as they allocate resources and determine technological configurations for the provision of services. Moreover, it is hoped that this book will help ease the task of those who must reconcile universal health care coverage with quality assurance and radiation protection.
