CBR signs Technical Cooperation Agreement with ANVISA

Another important initiative of the Brazilian College of Radiology and Imaging Diagnosis (CBR) in favor of Brazilian Radiology, the Technical Cooperation Agreement between the entity and the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) was signed in Brasília (DF) at the end of October. CBR President Dr. Manoel Rocha, was at ANVISA headquarters to sign the agreement together with its CEO, Dr. William Dib. The general objective of this initiative is to establish general bases of reciprocal technical cooperation in the sense of developing works and actions in the scientific, academic and technical scope that are of common interest to both institutions with regard to the improvement of processes and practices in the field of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging, always focusing on promoting better assistance to the Brazilian population. Among the various points covered by the Agreement are support for the preparation of technical-scientific opinions, as well as meetings to create opportunities for technical panels to support regulation related to Radiology and Imaging Diagnosis, support for the health regulation of products subject to health surveillance, among others. With this initiative, the College once again reinforces its role of acting on several fronts in favor of Radiology. From the expansion of this dialogue, the CBR, representing the radiologist, ensures a central position in important discussions. “CBR's approximation with regulatory agencies plays a fundamental role in defending the exercise of our specialty. The absence of a specialist society in the discussions of health regulations within the respective area of activity brings many risks of distancing from what is really important and effective in our daily practice, often dealing with topics such as protection in Radiology. This cooperation agreement between CBR and ANVISA brings benefits to both”, concludes Dr. Cibele Alves de Carvalho, Director of Professional Defense at CBR.
