FLUOROSCOPY X-RAY EQUIPMENT DOSE MONITORS RECOMMENDED BY FDA

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

FLUOROSCOPY X-RAY EQUIPMENT DOSE MONITORS RECOMMENDED BY FDA to help prevent radiation overdoses during fluoroscopically-guided procedures, Bruce Burlington, director of FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, told the annual meeting of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association's Diagnostic Imaging and Therapy Systems Division Sept. 19 in Edgartown, Massachusetts. FDA would like manufacturers to "incorporate equipment features which will monitor total delivered dose and make more practical the prevention of such injuries." The agency, however, currently is not planning on changing the x-ray performance standard to require dose monitors or other safety enhancements.
