A recent study in Pediatrics found that half of parents are aware of the potential increase in future cancer risk associated with pediatric CT scans.
Published by JAMA Pediatrics, a large study to quantify trends in the use of pediatric CT scans links associated radiation exposure with future cancer risk.
According to a study conducted by Mass General Imaging researchers, primary care physicians prefer to deliver the results of radiology exams to patients.
Dushyant Sahani, MD, Director of CT at Massachusetts General Hospital Imaging, answers parents' questions on the June 2012 study in The Lancet that found that children who get several CT scans have a slightly higher chance of brain cancer and leukemia in later life.
Europe's X-ray body scanners, also known as backscatter machines, are banned in 27 countries. It's an abundance of caution in response to mounting concerns they may pose a public health risk.
An image processing technique called ASIR allows radiologists to reduce radiation levels in chest CT exams without sacrificing image quality or diagnostic confidence, according to a paper just published by Mass General researchers.
