Staging and follow-up of oncologic patients: special needs of appropriateness in radiological imaging
Joanna Podgorska, Warsaw / Poland
1. To understand the need for radiation dose-lowering techniques in diagnostic imaging.
2. To learn that the quality of imaging should be adjusted to the imaging purpose.
3. To understand that the decline in image quality associated with the use of low-dose techniques should not be associated with a decline in diagnostic performance.
