There has been an increase in public awareness around patient radiation exposure. As a result, The Joint Commission has released new requirements for monitoring and recording patient exposure. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association’s Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) continues dose reduction efforts with the approval of MITA Smart Dose, a standard that offers healthcare providers an additional tool to optimize and manage dose in CT scanning.
On Wednesday, August 24 from 12 pm to 1 pm, Washington Hospital Services Industry Partner, General Electric will be hosting a webinar discussing these changes and how you can develop an effective dose management program for the current regulatory environment.
