RAD-AID has been working with the RAD-AID Albany Chapter and Radiologists Without Borders to support radiology capacity building in Ukraine since 2016. Teams of breast imaging radiology professionals have volunteered their time and expertise to improve breast health outcomes in Ukraine.
In early 2022 when war broke out in Ukraine, RAD-AID started working with a partner hospital in Kyiv. A Radiology Readiness Assessment was conducted and key areas, such as updating health IT and PACS infrastructure, as well as deploying customized educational strategies were identified as
approaches to support the radiology workforce at RAD-AID’s partner institution in Kyiv, so that they can best serve their population during this time of conflict.
