Medical-imaging meeting focuses on safety, training

By

Standardization and training were two of the themes promoted at a Food and Drug Administration public meeting on medical-imaging safety held Wednesday.

 

Quality assurance in the patient-safety and image-quality arenas is hindered by a lack of common standards among accreditation organizations and in equipment features and operational terminology, said radiology professionals attending the FDA meeting.

 

“If we want to focus on quality assurance, focus on standardization,” said Cynthia McCollough, a professor of radiology physics at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.
