"Better information and education about medical radiation and the associated benefits and risk consequences are needed to increase awareness of radiation safety in the general public" noted lead author Yahya Ali Athlawy, from the department of radiology at Sabya Hospital Jazan, a public hospital in Saudi Arabia
"Few hospitals have 24/7 echocardiogram capabilities, which is what makes CompuMed OPO so critical in preserving the viability of donor organs. In addition, the Critical Care Consulting that is delivered by CompuMed's Board-Certified cardiologists and pulmonologists helps OPOs to recover more organs. For OPOs that wish to bring technical exam administration in-house, CompuMed offers training programs for OPO coordinators so they can become skilled in administering echos in order to further reduce costs and control quality" said Karen Rago, former Executive Director, at The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center
"Conventional x-ray imaging systems use a collimator to shape the radiation beam, thereby defining the area of the subject that is exposed to x-ray radiation. Typically, the collimator has one or more adjustable flaps or blades that attach to the x-ray head or other source enclosure and are angularly adjustable to define the spread of the x-ray beam. In order to indicate the collimator settings and the shape of the consequent beam path to the x-ray technician during setup, a light bulb, Light-Emitting Diode (LED) or other source of visible light is provided as a collimator light. This collimator light is mounted at a position that is optically equivalent to the position of the x-ray source, so that light that is emitted from the collimator light follows the same path outward from the x-ray head as that of the ionizing radiation that is to be used. Using the collimator light as a guide, the technician can not only change the collimator settings to re-adjust beam path shape, but can also adjust the position or tilt angle of the x-ray head itself, so that the x-ray source is appropriately centered with respect to the subject."
