While most hospitals recognize the importance of the information technology aspects, the importance of a streamlined system to interpret the data is now rising to the forefront. This session presents an updated perspective on the people and processes essential for an optimal radiation dose monitoring program.
Participants will learn:
• How to establish an effective dose management team
• The differences in managing Fluoroscopy vs CT Dose

• How to incorporate “insights” to improve your dose management program
• To help staff reduce time spent yet maintain quality
