In the discussion about radiation dose, topics like Peak Skin Dose (PSD) and contrast monitoring should not get lost.
Lengthy Interventional radiology procedures can result in an increased potential for deterministic radiation side-effects such as erythema and skin burns. By utilizing appropriate in-case technique and post case Peak Skin Dose (PSD) review, clinicians and administrators can quickly identify patients at risk and provide guidance as necessary. Additionally, real-time analytics can determine practice patterns by physician, technologist or device as an educational feedback loop in the QA/QI process. This is accomplished with PSD graphical mapping in multiple perspectives (anterior, posterior) with support for single and bi-plane suites.
This feature is exclusive to DoseMonitor® and supported on all RDSR compliant imaging devices.
