Radiation Safety Case & Facebook Live Video on Portable Chest X-rays through Glass during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Learn about the approach in a new Image Wisely radiation safety case and Facebook Live video

Techniques for acquiring chest X-rays in suspected or known COVID patients can be modified in order to preserve PPE and limit personnel contact with the patients. Medical physicists and a radiologist from the two U.S. hospitals where the practice was adopted describe the modified techniques in Image Wisely's new radiation safety case.

You can also view on-demand a Facebook Live discussion among some of the case authors and their clinical coworkers.
