      Radiation Protection in Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging covers the recent developments that have been introduced to address the increasing dose to the patient, and new assessment tools for use in dose optimization studies. Based on material from ASRT, ARRT and CAMRT, as well as Current Concepts of Radiation Protection. Radiation protection is based on the three fundamental principles of justification of exposure, keeping doses (of ionizing radiation) as low as reasonably achievable (optimization) and the application of dose International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) is responsible for the development of these principles.. Justification.

      Only when the question to be answered is clear can the most effective radiation protection be provided, minimizing or even avoiding exposure to ionizing radiation. A CT scan can often be optimized or even avoided using a previous ultrasound or MRI examination (in the authors’ pediatric radiology department CT scans account for 2% to 4% of all Cited by: To optimize the working procedures in the medical field with respect to radiation protection, a project called ORAMED focusses on improving the knowledge on extremity and eye lens exposures, combined with an optimization in the use of active personal dosemeters.

Protection (ICRP) is based on three principles: Justification of radiation exposures, optimization of radiation protection (or ALARA1) and application of individual dose limits. According to ICRP Publication (ICRP, ), optimization of protection is the process by which “the.

Hamidreza Pouraliakbar MD, in Practical Cardiology, Radiation Exposure. Radiation protection of patients is based on the principles of justification and optimization. Justification implies that the benefit for the patient—for example, exclusion of pathology, diagnosis of disease, or follow-up of treatment—outweighs the risk of radiation exposure.

Radiation Protection in Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging provides students and clinicians with the knowledge and tools to protect not only the patient, but personnel and members of the public as well. This comprehensive text reviews the critical issues in radiologic protection and presents these key topics regarding medial physics in Radiation protection optimization book accessible 2/5(1).

A full-color resource, Radiation Protection in Medical Radiography, 7th Edition makes it easy to understand both basic and complex concepts in radiation protection, biology, and physics. Concise coverage promotes the safe use of ionizing radiation in all imaging modalities, including the effects of radiation on humans at the cellular and /5(32).

The aim of this book, co-written by a pediatric radiologist, a physician and physicist, and a medical radiation technologist, is to address this issue by providing, for the first time, a thorough overview of clinical radiation field settings and their implications for radiation protection.

An accompanying volume is devoted to fluoroscopy. Radiation Protection: A Systematic Approach to Safety is a collection of papers that deals with the control, management, and prevention of toxic agents.

One paper presents design measures, evaluated in a balanced program, as a practicable method to lessen occupational radiation exposure. equally important field: Radiation Protection and Dose Reduction. The major rationale for this choice was the fact that NMTs, radiogra-phers and all medical radiation professionals will have radiation protection concerns, in-dependently of the specific set-up (i.
