Patient exposure to radiation has doubled over the past 20 years, and the amount of ionizing radiation from a CT scan is significantly greater than it once was. The FDA launched an initiative to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure using two principles of radiation protection – justification and dose optimization. Our expert will review the latest CMS regulations and interpretive guidelines that address these concerns.
This program will cover all of the radiology and nuclear medicine standards. If a surveyor showed up today, would you be able to demonstrate compliance with all 41 pages of CoPs changes?
