Radiologists' recommendations for followup imaging generated only 5.3 percent of chest and abdominal CT, brain and lumbar spine MRI and body PET exams, according to research performed at Mass General.
Six Mass General radiologists were recently inducted as American College of Radiology fellows, demonstrating a history of service and dedication to patients.
The underlying medical conditions facing young adults who undergo computed tomography (CT) exams represent a significantly greater health risk than that of radiation-induced cancer from CT.
