About Radiation Special Interest Section
The Radiation Special Interest Section was created to foster knowledge of its members in the study of radiation toxicology through an exchange of ideas, resources and expertise. The Section is committed to enhance the role of toxicologists in preparedness and response to accidental or intentional radiologic incidents.
The Goal of the AIC Special Interest Section is to exist as a forum for those AACT members who have interests in both adult and pediatric acute and critical care poisonings. Members will develop content for symposia based on interesting and challenging cases in clinical toxicology and select Fellows in training to present those cases at future NACCT meetings as determined by the NACCT Planning Committee. Members will also organize and present annual symposia our national meeting, the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology (NACCT). Typically, these are 2 hour symposia with 3 case presentations from fellows and 3 to 4 expert panel toxicologists.
