New RSNA Dose Exhibit: Real-time Management of Patient Radiation Dose during Interventional Radiology

Real-time Management of Patient Radiation Dose during Interventional Radiology (from RSNA 2017)

Measuring and evaluating a patient’s maximum skin dose in real time can reduce the risk of radiation injury during interventional radiology. This exhibit discusses the use of a novel real-time dosimeter that can be used for accurate measurements of skin doses in a clinical setting.
