Educational Webinars on High Quality, Cost-Effective Imaging
Jointly sponsored by Tufts University School of Medicine, Tufts Health Care Institute, and MedSolutions.
The goal of this webinar is to improve primary care physicians’ knowledge and utilization of appropriate high tech imaging studies in order to limit patients’ exposure to radiation.
The educational objectives of this webinar are for learners to:
Outline the concerns about radiation risk and patient safety in radiology.
Incorporate considerations of radiation risk when determining if imaging is required and, if so, in selecting the most appropriate imaging modality for specific patients and conditions.
Apply tools and techniques, such as provider-based guidelines and insurer-based reviews and incentives, to inform and manage the use of high tech imaging.
Identify the relative radiation exposure of different imaging modalities.
