Abstract

Currently, application of computed tomography (CT) increased in the diagnostic procedures. Hence, respecting to the unnecessary increase in the application of the CT-scans, it needs to prescribe radiological procedures from pelvic and lower abdomen with more caution. Furthermore, due to the unnecessary increasing application of CT-scan in the world, we believe that there is a need to revise, with more precision, for prescription of this radiological procedure. The panel recommended several measures to enhance and enforce radiation-dose optimization, particularly in collaboration with referring physicians. We should aim on such images in which a maximum of noise (lowest radiation) still allows us to make the relevant clinical diagnosis according to ALARA instructions. © The Author 2017.
