The power to manage exposure in your hands

 

Too often achieving ALARA in interventional procedures is treated as an experiment of trial and error. Furthermore, feedback and analysis on radiation exposure over time can take months to track and evaluate, leaving staff potentially exposed to higher than necessary radiation levels in the meantime.

Understanding Dose Area Product and Air Kerma



Dose Area Product (DAP) and Air Kerma (AK) are measurements commonly used to represent the dose your patient receives during an X-ray procedure. What the terms mean is often not well understood. What actions can be taken to reduce the numbers is important to review.

Discover the value in establishing a safety culture for dose management at your institution. Learn how important it is to share attitudes, values, goals, and practices regarding radiation safety across all imaging departments.
