IAEA calls for enhanced radiation protection of patients
Date:4/29/2009

rocedures needs to be optimized by reducing the CT-related radiation dose or, where appropriate, replacing CT with alternative techniques such as ultrasound or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Hospitals should use the smallest possible doses of radiation without affecting the clinical value of the examination or the procedure. There is evidence that optimization can reduce the radiation doses by about 20-70% in many situations.

The IAEA applauds advances in imaging technology that provide increased medical benefits to large numbers of patients. But because of concerns about cumulative doses of radiation, its message is that every effort should be made to reduce any unnecessary exposure.
