Authors: D.R. Bednarek; C. Ionita; S.N. Sweadri Vasan; S. Rudin

Target Audience: Radiologists, radiologic technologists and medical physicists working with fluoroscopy

This educational activity is free.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this case, the participant will be able to:

  1. Recognize the benefit and importance of x-ray beam collimation for reducing stochastic risk
  2. Utilize region of interest (ROI) imaging and demonstrate how it can be used to reduce integral dose
  3. Use collimation and ROI imaging to reduce peak skin dose
