University of Maryland RAD-AID in South Africa

 RAD-AID is launching a new program for radiology development in South Africa, which will be spearheaded by the RAD-AID University of Maryland Chapter. The program began in early 2016 with a Radiology-Readiness assessment performed at multiple health institutions in the Cape Town region of South Africa. Thorough assessments were completed in the Western Cape with a future trip planned to being work with colleagues in the Eastern Cape. Results will facilitate the development of radiology, radiation safety measures, quality-optimization, and information technologies for imaging in South Africa.
