Radiation Dose Management

Cardiac imaging accounts for about one-third of the source of X-ray radiation dose for all medical imaging. Expanding use of computed tomography (CT) for cardiac evaluations, use of nuclear imaging for myocardial perfusion exams and more complex t...

radiation dose management, medical imaging

Patient radiation dose safety has become the latest buzzword. With the emerging regulations and mandates, technologies and best practices, the radiation safety information pool has become convoluted with disparate and conflicting information. With...

June 10, 2014 — A real-time monitoring device that beeps in the presence of high doses of radiation can help reduce patient and interventional cardiologist exposure to radiation during cardiac catheterization, according to results of the RadiCure...

radiation dose monitoring

Radiation dose continues to rise as the number of computed tomography (CT), nuclear, angiography and fluoroscopy examinations grow, leading to a greater risk of patient overexposure to radiation. Healthcare providers must reinforce their efforts t...
