- Calculation of conceptus radiation dose and risks associated with imaging examinations performed on the expectant mother.
- Anticipation of conceptus dose for the pregnant employee who participates in fluoroscopically-guided interventional procedures.

 

Aim

CONCERT Research Project has been set up in  order 

  • to perform original research from which new findings, innovations and practical guidelines for optimal clinical management of pregnant patients needing radiologic procedures will result.
  • Generate dose data that may be used for the implementation of a radiation protection program designed for pregnant employees working in imaging departments, interventional laboratories and electrophysiological suites.

Conceptus Dose Estimation

Among the aims of 'CONCERT' research program is to develop a software expert system ['COnceptus Dose Estimation' (CODE)©] that allows

  • calculation of conceptus radiation dose and risk associated with imaging examinations performed on the expectant mother and
  • anticipation of conceptus dose for the pregnant employee who participates in fluoroscopically-guided interventional procedures. CODE integrates data produced in WP2 and WP3 and it is installed here.

Guidelines

Here you can download guideliens for pregnant women undergoing diagnostic x-ray examinations.
