"These requirements put recording radiation dose, tracking dose ranges, requiring that dose ranges conform with benchmarks, and insisting that a clinical indication has to be matched to the correct protocol on the table," said Dr. Rebecca Smith-Bindman of the University of California, San Francisco. What's lacking, she says, are clear details about how to measure progress. AuntMinnie.com (free registration) (01/20)
