Radiology Discussion Assignment
What happens during the fraction of a second when a technologist presses the exposure button? What is the importance of knowing the steps involved in creating an image? Why can’t the technologist just place the patient under the collimator light and press the exposure button? Reimbursement trends in medicine strongly encourage radiology departments to adopt digital technologies. Provide a rationale for these trends in terms of costs, dose, image quality, and efficiencies. How would you employ exposure indicators to assess image quality and radiation dose management?
