EU 3_1 - Cumulative doses: an awareness problem

21:43Jenia N. Vassileva, Vienna / AT

1. To present a summary of the recent data on patient cumulative exposure from recurrent imaging procedures, and the actions proposed during the IAEA meeting on this topic.

EU 3_2 - Defining scenarios with a risk for cumulative dose

18:24Franz Kainberger, Vienna / AT

1. To identify scenarios where patients have an increased probability of reaching or exceeding the cumulative dose limits.
2. To develop methods of early detection of scenarios with a potential higher dose risk, and how alert systems can be implemented.
3. To learn how to document and communicate in situations with a higher risk of cumulative dose with a view on the patient's outcome.
