Member Consultation: RANZCR Engineered Stone Position Statement Consultation

The College is seeking feedback from members regarding a position statement to inform Clinical Radiologists in screening and diagnosis of silicosis resulting from exposure to the dust within engineered stone. Australia has identified a significant incidence of silicosis in workers exposed to the dust containing high silica content within engineered stone. Whilst there are no reported cases of the disease in New Zealand, similar rates are expected with comparable use of engineered stone products. This is a high priority, public health issue and members are encouraged to contribute to this consultation.

Feedback on this statement is open until 5 pm 23 August. Any questions can be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
