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

to measure patient dose and increase patient safety, including information about technical factor selection, positioning and shielding.

“There is no question that CT scans save lives,” said Ms. Mayo. “More than 70 million CT scans are performed each year in the United States. In the vast majority of these cases, the benefits gained through the medical information obtained far outweigh the small risks involved. But because CT exams involve radiation, they must be performed only by qualified individuals who are properly educated to minimize dose in every possible way. Those individuals are certified CT technologists.”

About ASRT
The ASRT, based in Albuquerque, N.M., represents more than 133,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy. The Society is the largest radiologic science association in the world. Its mission is to provide radiologic technologists with the knowledge, resources and support they need to improve patient care.
