Low Dose

If radiology groups aren’t using compliant CT scanners, they can expect to pay up.

A drop in the number of CT scans performed on inpatients and reduction of radiation doses lowered the estimated rate of induced cancers.

Study identifies lowest possible radiation dose that still allows for detection of pleural effusions, thickening and calcification.

Study shows patients are positioned too low, negatively impacting radiation dose and image noise in chest CT.

Use of pediatric dose-reduction protocols and shielding for CTs vary among hospitals.

The controversy of covering low-dose CT for lung cancer screening continues, as groups argue lives saved versus dollars spent.

Low-dose CT screening for lung cancer does not result in diminished health quality of life or long term anxiety, study says.
