JNMT Articles on Dose Optimization
Minimizing Human Error in Radiopharmaceutical Preparation and Administration via a Bar Code–Enhanced Nuclear Pharmacy Management System
Hakala and colleagues investigate using an electronic connection between information management systems to allow the tracking of a radiopharmaceutical from preparation to administration.
Minimizing and Communicating Radiation Risk in Pediatric Nuclear Medicine
Fahey and colleagues review radiation dosimetry, radiation risk estimation, effective communication of risk to patients’ families, and radiation dose reduction in pediatric nuclear medicine.
Optimization of Low-Dose CT Protocol in Pediatric Nuclear Medicine Imaging
and colleagues describe an optimized protocol for SPECT/CT systems that makes it possible to minimize the dose to patients.
Assessment of Patient Exposure to X-Radiation from SPECT/CT Scanners
Hara and colleagues evaluate radiation exposure doses (organ-absorbed doses) to each organ from SPECT/CT scans under various CT conditions.
Principles of CT: Radiation Dose and Image Quality
Goldman discusses CT radiation dose, the measurement of CT dose, and CT image quality.
Communicating Radiation Exposure: A Simple Approach
Zeng presents a simple approach to help physicians and technologists to effectively communicate radiation exposure information and perhaps potential radiation risk.
Maintaining a Proper Perspective of Risk Associated with Radiation Exposure
Thompson describes types of radiation risk, estimation of doses, and communication of relative risks to patients.
