Getting it right: Radiation Dose ManagementSymposium at ECR 2017

Right Dose Symposium

ECR 2017 - European Congress of Radiology
March 4th, 2017, Vienna

Thank you very much for taking part in our first symposium on radiation dose management during ECR 2017 in Vienna.

Did you miss our symposium? No problem. You can now easily watch all presentations and interviews here.

Get insights from our symposium sessions here.

Listen to Ioannis Sechopoulos, PhD, Associate Professor of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at Radboud University, Nijmegen in the Netherlands, and learn more about the basic concepts of breast dosimetry, how they have changed for breast tomosynthesis, and the current levels used for dose from mammography and tomosynthesis.

Prof. Dr. Hatem Alkadhi, Full Professor of the University Hospital Zurich, presented technique for automated, attenuation-based tube potential selection, the tin filter technology for single-energy CT, high-pitch scanning and advanced iterative reconstruction algorithms.

Listen to Dr. Frank Schellhammer, MD, Chief Radiologist at Krankenhaus der Augustinerinnen in Cologne, Germany, discussing different opportunities how to make radiation dose management easy.

Learn about our symposium speakers´ views on modern Radiation Dose Management.

The introduction of digital tomosynthesis to breast imaging has brought many questions regarding the dose involved in this new imaging modality. Listen to Ioannis Sechopoulos, PhD, discussing dose management in breast tomosynthesis.

The introduction of dual-source CT technology has revolutionized clinical CT imaging by enabling the radiologist to apply a multitude of patient-tailored different dose reduction strategies. Hear Prof. Dr. Hatem Alkadhi, explaining the effect of these options on radiation dose and image quality.

In modern radiology departments, dose management is gaining more and more interest. Frank Schellhammer, MD, discusses the handling of data in dose management and the benefits of teamplay in monitoring radiation dose.
