If you could ask a radiation physicist anything...what would it be?
I'm in the process of organising a Q&A webinar with a medical radiation physicist where we talk all things radiation physics and safety, and I want your help! If you have any radiation-related questions that you want answered, let me know and I will bring it up during the webinar.
I don't want to make this a physics-heavy session, because let's face it, who has the energy to relearn all of that only to forget it 2 weeks later? Instead I want to focus on clinical-related questions, things we commonly get asked by patients but may not be quite sure if we have given the best possible answer.
Here are some examples:
- If a female patient is irradiated and planning on trying to conceive later in her cycle, will this pose a risk? Should she let her current cycle pass before trying to conceive?
- A patient has had 3 CT scans in the last 2 years. Should they be concerned?
- If DLP remains constant but you change kVp from 100 to 120, what impact would this have on potential tissue damage?
So send in your questions and stay tuned for what is shaping up to being a great Q&A session!
