MPE11: Dose management of pregnant patients, pregnant staff and pediatric patients in radiology

A practical challenge to be solved: How can we better protect the pregnant patient?

Importance and impact of the training module: Estimation of conceptus dose is needed after intentional or inadvertent irradiation of a pregnant patient with a diagnostic X-ray procedure. These low dose exposures may be a source of major anxiety. Children are more radiosensitive than adults. Methods developed to estimate dose to unborn child from diagnostic X-ray examinations performed on the mother will be discussed. This course also addresses present patient specific dosimetry methods associated with radiological examinations for children and adolescents.

Lead: prof. J. Damilakis, author of many scientific publications in this domain and invited lecturer at the European Conference of Radiology during several years, UOC (partner 11).
