Radiation Dose Management

Nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) have been the gold standard for noninvasive detection of coronary ischemia and infarcts. However, the high ra...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its latest efforts in supporting the Bonn Call for Action, an international list of priorities for radiation protection in medicine for the next decade.

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory  have uncovered new clues about the risk of cancer from low-dose radiation. In this research, low-dose is defined as equivalent to 100 millisieverts or roug...

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...
