Society of Interventional Radiology Addresses Radiation Safety, Advances Best Practices
Date:4/20/2011

ng radiation has renewed concerns about exposure during medical imaging. The SIR Foundation—a scientific organization dedicated to fostering research and education in interventional radiology for the purposes of advancing scientific knowledge and developing innovative therapies that lead to improved patient care and quality of life—initiated a call for a multidisciplinary consensus panel on radiation use in 2010. The article spells out the panel's findings that in both diagnostic and interventional radiology the goal should be optimization during exposure—a strategy that recognizes the need to balance the risks versus the benefits of ionizing radiation—with patients remaining the key stakeholders in this improvement process. The panel recommended the development of a registry to capture and analyze data from fluoroscopic procedures, recognizing the need for long-term support from both patient advocacy groups and federal agencies.

Jason C. Smith, M.D., Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, Calif., and his co-authors hypothesized in "Ultra-low-dose Protocol for CT-guided Lung Biopsies" that successful results could still be achieved during lung biopsies by radically lowering the CT dose. The study's conclusion proved that with an ultra-low-dose, or ULD protocol, the dose to the chest during CT-guided percutaneous lung biopsies is reduced greater than 95 percent from the standard protocol without decreasing technical success or compromising patient safety.

Daniel A. Marichal, M.D., Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, and his colleagues evaluated the characteristics, reliability and ease of use of two radiation protection systems in "Comparison of a Suspended Radiation Protection System Versus Standard Lead Apron for Radiation Exposure of a Simulated Interventionalist." The group examined the effectiveness of a suspended radiation protection system that offers protection from the top of the head to the calv
