ITU-T Study Group 17 (SG 17) is organizing a half day Workshop on
"Radioactivity safety and security threats protection and telemedical
support for irradiated people" on August 30th 2011. This workshop
will take place at the ITU Headquarters in Geneva.
ITU-T Study Group 17 has been working for the last ten years on the
redaction and establishment of Recommendations and standards in
telebiometrics also applied to telemedicine and e-health. The Fukushima
nuclear accident triggered interest in the application of telemedicine
in the field of emergency telecoms both for the caring of populations
living in the affected area and the workers and physicians operating
The objective of this workshop is to consider all these activities in
the field of nuclear science and emergency telecoms. The aim of the
workshop is to explore the issues and aspects of human safety and
telebiometric security and their consequences for telebiometric,
nuclear-medicine teleconsultation, telecommunications and e-health
technical standardization work and how ITU and SDOs deal with these
Further objectives are:
Awareness of telecommunication security Recommendations
Promotion of Study Group 17
E-health and telemedicine Recommendations (joint activity with ISO and IEC).
Information exchange with other organization
Promotion of adoption of ITU-T Recommendations X.1081, X.1082, X 1083, etc.
Developing ITU-T Recommendations X.1092 to X.1097 (telemedicines)
Modelling the medical practice in the telemedicine environment.
