How Does Ultrasound Compare in Safety and Radiation Dose to Other Imaging Modalities?

The objective of this session is to broadly describe the radiation doses used in common imaging modalities, discuss the impact that over ordering these procedures has had on the cumulative exposure of patients, describe other possible safety and economic differences between ultrasound and other imaging modalities, and emphasize the “ultrasound first” principle when considering the appropriateness of ordering imaging.
