West Physics Announces Flouroscopy Dose Management Program
Date:2/3/2019

West Physics Consulting, LLC (“West Physics”) based in Atlanta, GA, the leading national provider of integrated medical and health physics services, announced today that it has begun offering a full suite of fluoroscopy radiation dose management services to customers nationwide through a turn-key service titled Fluoro Dose Navigator.

Fluoro Dose Navigator offers best-in-class fluoroscopy Equipment Performance Testing, Data Collecting & Analysis, Personnel Monitoring, Auditing, and Practical Training to meet the new 2019 Joint Commission (JC) standards for fluoroscopy at accredited healthcare facilities. West Physics now provides a comprehensive service to JC accredited organizations which ensures compliance for all fluoroscopy users. “Proper fluoroscopy training for physicians and ancillary users is essential to reduce radiation dose to patients and personnel while ensuring optimal patient diagnostic and treatment outcomes,” stated Dr. John Harvey, Chief Medical & Health Physicist of West Physics. “Accrediting organizations like the Joint Commission, as well as state X-ray regulators, require that individuals operating fluoroscopic equipment have documented initial and refresher training in radiation safety specific to fluoroscopy.” The West Physics Fluoro Dose Navigator program offers live, hands-on training to fluoroscopy operators, as well as computer-based options to impart best practices in reducing radiation doses to patients and personnel at operators’ convenience.

While staff training is certainly an essential component of fluoroscopy, every imaging department utilizing fluoroscopy should also have a full on-site radiation safety audit by a qualified expert. “The fluoroscopy radiation safety audit provides immediate feedback for the imaging facility to optimize current practices in order to reduce the radiation exposure to patients and personnel,” continued Dr. Harvey. “Since fluoroscopic procedures can cause serious radiation burns to patients, it is essential to be aware of, and take steps to mitigate the risk.” At the conclusion of each Fluoro Dose Navigator Audit, the department or facility receives detailed guidance from a West Physics qualified expert and a complete Fluoroscopy Radiation Safety Audit Report. Dr. Harvey concludes, “West Physics is excited to introduce flexible training options in this area for physicians, technologists, nurses, anesthesia staff and other ancillary personnel to help them get and stay compliant with these new regulations from the Joint Commission.”
