In the News – Summit Health Interventional Radiology
Dr. Waseem Bhatti, Medical Director of Imaging at Summit Health Cancer Center, was recently quoted in the September issue of Radiology Today, a publication that reports on the latest news and information affecting radiologists, radiology administrators, and technologists. In an article titled, "More With Less", Dr. Bhatti discusses his perspectives on dosing.
"When a patient undergoes a CT scan, they deserve to have the highest-quality scan using the lowest dose possible. The ALARA principle of responsible dose management guides our approach," Bhatti says. "We also fully participate in the Image Gently campaign to reduce pediatric CT dose. Our equipment helps us adhere to these principles by giving us the tools necessary to limit dose while producing high-quality images."
