[en] In November 1987, the five-member Differing Professional Opinions Special Review Panel established by the Executive Director for Operations of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission to review agency policies and procedures for handling differing professional opinions (DPOs) presented its findings and recommendations in NUREG-1290. The issuance of that report completed the first task of the panel's charter. In accordance with Manual chapter 4125, Section L, and the charter of the Special Review Panel, the panel's second task was to ''...review...the DPOs submitted subsequent to the previous Panel's review, in order to identify any employee whose DPO made a significant contribution to the Agency or to the public safety but who has not yet been recognized for such contribution.'' This Addendum provides the findings of that review

[en] The aim of this publication is to compile available literature data and expert experience regarding skin brachytherapy (BT) in order to produce general recommendations on behalf of the GEC-ESTRO Group.
Background and objectivesThe number of emergency radiology (ER) training programs in North America is small compared to the projected growth in demand for ER-trained radiologists. To date, there is no consensus-based training curriculum that sets a standard for all ER fellowship training programs. This study seeks to (1) identify the programmatic measures currently used in North American ER fellowship programs and (2) gather the perspectives of existing ER fellowship program directors (PD) and their recommendations for minimum and ideal curricular standards.
MethodsWe distributed an 18-question survey to the PDs of every North American ER fellowship program (N = 15). Surveys were completed during the 2016–2017 academic year. We performed a cross-sectional analysis to gain an understanding of existing training curricula, expected areas of competency by the end-of-training, and PD opinions of what a standard ER training curriculum should contain.
ResultsThe data revealed heterogeneity in programmatic structure across the continent, as well as some areas of agreement. PD suggestions for a standard ER training curriculum showed consistency in many areas, including competency and proficiency expectations and clinical exposures, with some variability. These data were used to inform the creation of the first curricular standard for ER fellowship training.
ConclusionThis study yielded the creation of a standard fellowship training resource for the field of ER. This deliverable serves as a curricular guideline for existing ER fellowships, as well as a model for new ER fellowship programs.
