Radiation Dose Management

The radiation dose management channel includes information of radiation dose recording software, real-time staff dose monitoring, regulatory compliance and technology to reduce dose, including interative reconstruction software.

Through the use of technology, clinicians can better fine-tune department performance, automate documentation for improved reporting accuracy, facilitate compliance with certification programs and regulatory requirements, and ensure contrast dose management across and imaging department or enterprise

According to ARRS’ American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), reduced-dose CT depicts greater than 90% of lung nodules in children and young adults with cancer, identifying the presence of nodules with moderate sensitivity and high specificity.

Axial reformatted clinical (1.083 mSv) and reduced dose (0.318 mSv) CT images from a 17-year-old girl with osteosarcoma. A 2 mm left lower lobe nodule is clearly visible in the left lower lobe on the clinical CT image (arrow in A). The same nodule is vaguely apparent on the reduced-dose CT image (arrow in B), classified as present but poorly visible.
