MITA Calls for Continued Collaboration Among Imaging Stakeholders to Minimize Radiation Exposure

Publication: ADVANCE for Imaging & Radiation Oncology

The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) affirmed its commitment to safe, appropriate, and effective medical imaging technology and encouraged continued stakeholder collaboration to minimize radiation exposure as the imaging community gathered recently at the National Institutes of Health’s “Summit on Management of Radiation Dose in Computerized Tomography (CT): Toward the Sub-mSv Exam.”

“Medical imaging manufacturers have been reducing radiation dose for CT scans for decades through technological innovations,” said Dave Fisher, executive director of MITA. Technological investments by imaging manufacturers have reduced radiation dose for some procedures by up to 75 percent, while improving image capability and quality. From hardware and software advances to protocol and procedure improvements, today’s imaging offers highly personalized, non-invasive care that can be tailored to each patient’s age, weight, and other unique factors.
