✏️ Questionnaire about the Clinical Use of Dose Monitoring Software in Computed Tomography

Posted February 15, 2018

EuroSafe Imaging is pleased to invite all European ESR members to the EuroSafe Imaging Questionnaire about the Clinical Use of Dose Monitoring Software in Computed Tomography. The on-line questionnaire is available here.

The questionnaire is aimed at understanding the consistency of clinical implementation and use of dose monitoring software among European ESR members. This will help EuroSafe Imaging to estimate whether these systems are helpful to improve clinical CT practice by reducing radiation dose. Moreover, we expect that dose monitoring software can help to re-shape the existing concept of diagnostic reference levels (based on patient’s anatomy) towards a concept of local clinical DRLs (based on clinical indications).

We would be grateful for your participation in the questionnaire by February 25, as it is envisaged to present the preliminary results at the European Congress of Radiology 2018 (Vienna, February 28 – March 4, 2018). Of course, the data analysis will be done anonymously.
