Speaking at the opening ceremony, Head of NSRPA, Josephus J. Cole said the establishment of NSRPA has opened the gate for the expansion in the use of nuclear technology. He said nuclear technology is being used in Sierra Leone to implement a number of technical cooperation projects aimed at addressing socio-economic needs at various institutions including Fourah Bah College, Sierra Leone Agricultural Research Institute, government and private owned hospitals and various medical labs in the country among others.

Mr. Cole stated further that as an institution, they decided to organize such training course for Radiographers in order to find a solution to the poor quality assurance and procedure of X-ray imaging which was discovered after a conducted tour of various hospitals across the country.

The training according to him was climaxed with a conducted visitation tour of some hospitals in the country.

Addressing her audience, Virginia Sapaki said she is in Sierra Leone as an expert to pass on knowledge to Radiographers on quality assurance procedures for X-ray imaging. She said the training has in no doubt improved the technical competence of participants, thereby enhancing safety of patients who undergo X-ray examinations for various diseases.

Minister of Energy, Henry Macauley in his statement, thanked the International Atomic Agency for their continued support in ensuring that Sierra Leone benefits from technical cooperation programs. He appealed to the Agency experts to properly assess the needs of Sierra Leone in terms of diagnostic equipment.

He further admonished participant to make good use of the opportunity as similar training opportunities may not be readily available in the country anytime soon.
