Radiology Today—September 1, 2018

Radiology Today featured HSS administrative director Christopher J. Smith, CNMT, RT(N), in an article about the current technologies for reducing radiation risk during X-rays. 

"Reducing health care-related radiation exposure is a metaphorical cornerstone in medical ethics and the standards exhibited in the Hippocratic Oath. While incidental exposure from x-rays has minimal to no patient risk, there are patient populations, such as adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients, that may receive serial x-rays for many years," said Smith.

"At HSS, we see dose reductions equal to approximately 50 percent of comparable digital x-rays. EOS also offers a microdose feature that can further reduce patient exposure to near-background levels, which HSS will be exploring to offer for some patient cohorts," he added.

This article appeared in the September 2018 print issue.
