ASRT Supports Efforts to Minimize CT Radiation Dose
Date:12/17/2009

Two recent studies examining radiation doses delivered during computed tomography examinations underscore the important role that competent, educated CT technologists play in minimizing dose and protecting patients, according to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.

Albuquerque, NM (Vocus) December 16, 2009 -- Two recent studies examining radiation doses delivered during computed tomography examinations underscore the important role that competent, educated CT technologists play in minimizing dose and protecting patients, according to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (https://www.asrt.org).

The studies were published in the Dec. 14 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine. One found a wide variability in the amount of radiation dose delivered for identical types of exams, resulting in up to a 13-fold difference in radiation dose from institution to institution or even from machine to machine. The second study estimated that approximately 29,000 future cases of cancer could be related to CT scans performed in the United States in 2007.

“These studies clearly point out that additional dose reduction efforts are needed,” said ASRT President Diane Mayo. “Fortunately, radiologic technologists who are certified in CT know how to make the proper adjustments to reduce the total dose delivered to the patient.”

The ASRT, which represents more than 133,000 radiologic technologists, is committed to ensuring radiation dose is as low as possible for all types of medical imaging examinations. “Radiologic technologists, along with radiologists and medical physicists, are members of the team responsible for ensuring that the lowest possible dose is used in order to obtain a diagnostically useful image,” said Ms. Mayo.
