Description:
Previous research has demonstrated that individual radiology departments do not use energy efficiently. Such studies have commented that radiologists hold a ‘unique role’ in the promotion of ‘eco-friendly’ radiology departments. Improving energy efficiency can save both energy and money and can therefore be viewed as a means of tackling – albeit on a minor scale – both global economic and environmental issues. The current research aimed to present an Irish perspective of radiology energy efficiency and more specifically the radiography department – a department primarily staffed by radiographers.
