The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging

Image Wisely

The American College of Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America formed the Joint Task Force on Adult Radiation Protection to address concerns about the surge of public exposure to ionizing radiation from medical imaging. The Joint Task Force collaborated with the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists to create the Image Wisely campaign with the objective of lowering the amount of radiation used in medically necessary imaging studies and eliminating unnecessary procedures.

Interactive Atlas of Cross-Sectional Anatomy   e-anatomy web site. More than 1500 slices from normal CT and MR exams were selected in order to cover the entire sectional anatomy of human body. Images were labeled using Terminologia Anatomica. A user-friendly interface allows to cine through multi-slice image series combined with interactive textual information, 3D models and anatomy drawings.


GE Healthcare -VCT Series Scan in Volumes-not Slices The LightSpeed VCT Series groundbreaking technology opens the door to new procedures while improving the imaging of existing ones. Improved resolution, reduced acquisitions per study*, shorter patient-breath-holds along with the platform’s power to routinely support faster coverage with submillimeter resolution, allow more robust and repeatable studies. This is critical in emerging procedures such as Coronary Angiographic studies.

A new CT generation takes shape: thinking outside the circle

Radiation Effective Dose From CT Scans  This program uses parameterizations of data developed by Huda and colleagues (see “References” below) to compute radiation effective dose consequential to computed tomography examinations. “Effective dose”, as defined in ICRP Report Number 90, is an index (with units of millirem) that reflects radiation detriment (risk).

Shuman’s Spotlight, on Low Radiation CT, Dr. William Shuman, MD
A noted researcher in the area of cardiac and dual energy CT, William P. Shuman, MD, FACR, is Professor, Medical Director of Radiology, and Vice Chair of the Department of Radiology at University of Washington Medical Center.

The CT Anatomy Tutor, from Wayne State University, This program is designed for teaching clinically relevant CT anatomy of the entire body. This is not a comprehensive guide for learning CT anatomy. The focus of this program is on specific structures which are readily seen on CT images but often are not well described in CT atlases. It is specifically oriented to structures that have clinical relevance. There are three sections to this program. The first section is in a quiz format where structures are shown in the brain, head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis, and the upper and lower extremities. The second section is a series of tutorials that describe how to identify structures in regions with complex anatomy or structures that have special characteristics that can be used to identify other structures. The third section consists of a glossary of anatomic terms with links to structures identified in the first two sections.
Images in this program are primarily 2.5 to 3 mm axial sections of normal CT scans with relevant sagittal and coronal reconstructions.

The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA)
What is The Cancer Imaging Archive?
A large archive of medical images of cancer accessible for public download. Registering is free. All images are stored in DICOM file format. The images are organized as “Collections”, typically patients related by a common disease (e.g. lung cancer), image modality (MRI, CT, etc) or research focus.

UK CT Users Group We are a group for people with an interest in medical CT scanning. Our main aim is to share experience and knowledge relating to CT scanning with each other, as well as to provide an educational forum. We formed in 1999, and are mainly hospital physicists, but we also count radiographers and radiologists amongst our number. Our main forum occurs during our meetings, which are organized approximately once per year. These are informal, and involve presentations and discussion sessions, with an emphasis on sharing experience and knowledge.

X-ray Risk  This site provides information for patients and health care providers to facilitate well-informed discussions about the increased risk of cancer from radiation exposure as a result of medical imaging.
