WHO Chest Radiography in Epidemiological Studies

May 10, 2019:  The WHO Chest Radiography in Epidemiological Studies website has now launched with the WFPI acknowledged as partner.  Drs. Nasreen Mohammed (South Africa) and Henrique Lederman (Brazil) represent the WFPI on this commitee. 

The aim of the website is to be a one-stop reference for investigators and site staff on CXR methods. It contains background information on the WHO definitions, updates from the CRES project (including new resources on quality and safety), and access to training support/materials (including registration for reference images).

The website for CRES resources can be accessed at this link
