Society of Interventional Radiology Addresses Radiation Safety, Advances Best Practices
Date:4/20/2011

FAIRFAX, Va., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Society of Interventional Radiology has a long-term commitment to radiation safety, taking a leading role in measuring and assessing radiation dosage; developing educational programs on radiation safety, radiation protection and reduction of skin dosage; and promoting the safety of patients and health care professionals. Four articles, published this month in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, illustrate SIR's frontline stance on facets of patient safety and standards of care by exploring opportunities to improve patient safety through lower dosages that still provide excellent imaging results and even new equipment advances to protect both patients and the diagnostic and interventional radiologist.

"The Society of Interventional Radiology views patient care and safety for patients and health care professionals among its absolute top priorities.

Murphy, M.D., FSIR, who represents the national society of nearly 4,700 doctors, scientists and allied health professionals dedicated to improving health care through minimally invasive treatments. "Interventional radiologists pioneered the procedures and standards for safely providing minimally invasive medicine. Patient safety is always incorporated into interventional radiology advances and treatments because interventional radiologists are highly trained in radiation safety, radiation physics, and the biologic effects of radiation and injury protection," said Murphy, an interventional radiologist and director of the Vascular Disease Research Center at Rhode Island Hospital i
