This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "The ACR Fluoroscopy Dose Index Registry Pilot: Technical Considerations and Dosimetric Performance of the Interventional Fluoroscopes".
This is a pilot study across nine institutions investigating the fluoroscopic technical and clinical practice data regarding dose in interventional radiology procedures. The specific aim of this paper was to report the accuracy and consistency of fluoroscopic dose as well as the available radiation safety parameters across the institutions.
To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to:
1.Examine the accuracy and consistency of dose recording in interventional radiology.
