NTI teamed up with Pool Re to host a conference in London on April 6, 2017 to discuss the risks posed by radiological materials in the UK and globally.
The conference included presentations on the threat and the urgent need to reduce the risks associated with radiological materials used in the healthcare sector; the economic impact of a radiological “dirty bomb” bomb in the UK; a case study on risk mitigation measures in the U.S., including at hospitals in New York City; and the perspective from insurers. Des Browne, vice chairman of NTI and former UK Secretary of State for Defence, delivered the keynote address.
NTI published a new informational brochure on effective alternative technologies for cesium-137 blood irradiators for this conference.
