More specifically, reducing dose when capturing pediatric images. The research I took

Foos, Clinical Applications Research, Carestream[/caption] In recent conversations with clinical colleagues, the comment was made that “our sickest patients get the worst imaging." On further investigation I found that in portable chest imaging, anti-scatter grids are infrequently used, despite their

The annual Congress of  The British Institute of Radiology, The Society and College of Radiographers, and The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, covers all aspects of diagnostic

Radiation dose has long been an important industry topic. Recently, attention has broadened from the health field to prominent mainstream/consumer awareness. With more patients becoming sensitized to this topic, imaging professionals are fielding more dose-related questions—including those related to projection radiography. Given the substantial benefits of
