Reducing radiation dose in CT requires a team approach. Radiologists, medical physicists and technologists work together to ensure imaging quality and radiation dose safety.
» Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear medicine is the second largest source of medical radiation exposure after computed tomography. The benefits of nuclear medicine procedures are immense and certainly exceed the risks.
Fluoroscopic procedures have saved countless lives and improved the health of millions. Practitioners seek to preserve the benefits while reducing the risks — always looking to improve that balance.
