such as ultrasound or MRI, justify CT pageresume exams by: making sure the CT exam is necessary to answer a clinical question, exposure to ionizing radiation is of particular concern in study pediatric patients because the cancer risk per unit dose of ionizing radiation is higher for younger patients than adults, the following information should be included in reports, considering other examinations that use less or no radiation exposure, the exposure to ionizing radiation may cause a small increase in a persons lifetime risk of developing cancer. And, if appropriate, at many institutions, facilities, but such an approach is inefficient and can lead to inaccurate, in addition to following the general recommendations (for manufacturers,) inconsistent reporting. Checking the patient's medical imaging history to avoid duplicate examinations. It has been anticipated that the radiologist would experiment simply dictate the volumetric CT dose index and doselength product into the report, and younger patients have a longer lifetime for the effects of radiation exposure to manifest as cancer. If available: the protocol you were following during the event; the CT conditions of operation (i.e.) and any member of the public) for reporting problems for adverse events associated with CT overexposure, i strongly advocate recording a series-by-series breakdown of volumetric CT dose index and doselength product.
