Image Wisely targets nuclear medicine for dose reduction
Image Wisely this week is expanding into nuclear medicine with its effort to educate physicians, healthcare practitioners, radiologists, and imaging technologists on the appropriate use of radiation in medical imaging procedures.
Joining the initiative are the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), the SNMMI Technologist Section, and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC). The groups have created online educational materials to help healthcare providers use the lowest radiopharmaceutical dose necessary to perform nuclear medicine exams.
