Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health


Summit on Management of Radiation Dose in Computerized Tomography: Toward the Sub-mSv Exam

Thursday, February 24, 2011 (All day)
Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, Bethesda, Maryland
Meeting summaries and reports: 

This is an NIH, CIBR sponsored and FDA, ACR, and ACC supported conference focused on transforming CT technology and its use to achieve minimal public health risks from radiation exposure. A specific goal is to identify the technological steps and associated research required to reduce the routine CT exam dose to less than one mSv. Additional goals in the near term are improving our understanding and management of radiation exposure, and defining steps to achieve best practices.
