"The articles' unifying element is patient safety," said JVIR editor-in-chief Ziv J Haskal, M.D., FSIR. "By lowering a patient's exposure to damaging radiation—without compromising the treatment or diagnostic ability—and developing tools that provide improved functionality and protective properties for use by both the diagnostic and interventional radiologist, interventional radiologists again show why they are the driving force behind the development and implementation of the field's best practices," said Haskal, who is also professor of radiology and surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and vice chair of strategic development and chief of vascular and interventional radiology, image-guided therapy and interventional oncology at the University of Maryland Medical Center, both in Baltimore.

"Exploring ways to promote and practice safe radiation procedures and minimize radiation damage caused by medical imaging and image-guided treatments is of paramount concern to SIR members," said Murphy. The four new articles report on safety studies and examine new techniques in imaging used for diagnosis and treatment. The topics range from ways to optimize radiation dosages during fluoroscopic procedures, an examination of an ultra low-dose protocol for CT-guided lung biopsies, a comparison of a suspended protection system versus standard lead apron used by interventional and diagnostic radiologists, and an exploration of dosage differences during conventional CT guidance and a new cone-beam CT-guidance technique.

In "Optimizing Radiation Use During Fluoroscopic Procedures: Proceedings From a Multidisciplinary Consensus Panel," co-author James R. Duncan, M.D., Ph.D., Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Mo., noted that while fluoroscopic procedures have dramatically improved patient care and outcomes, the rapid rise in the use of ionizi
