CBR in the media: check out the interviews given by the College's communication board this month

The CBR, as the main source of information when the subject is Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging, as it represents the specialty on the national and international scene, was approached by the press to talk about two subjects that gained prominence in the last month. One of the interviews given by Dr. Hilton Leão, director of communication at CBR, and physicist Simone Kodlulovich, both members of the College's radiological protection commission, spoke about Chernobyl for the magazine's portal HEALTH. With the series, the theme was highlighted worldwide, generating discussions and alerts, mainly due to the increase in tourists interested in visiting the city of Pripyat, the closest to the nuclear power plant and which was evacuated. Another subject highlighted in the media, this time with regional impact, was a bill to prohibit the testing and installation of 5G technology in Santa Catarina, which is being discussed in the Legislative Assembly (Alesc). The deputy author of the proposal mentions a video that circulates online in which a doctor says that the fifth generation of mobile internet is harmful to health. In this way, Dr. Hilton Leão was interviewed live by Santa Catarina CBN Radio, in the Direct from the Newsroom program, to clarify which are the studies that deal with this theme, reinforcing that there is still no evidence on the effects of 5G technology, pointed out by the bill. With the repercussion and importance of the topic in the state, CBR also granted an interview for the program nsc tv, an affiliate of TV Globo in Santa Catarina. doctor Hilton recorded the interview on the subject that aired on the NSC News program.
