Dose Monitoring Programs®
The Hill Medical Corporation equipment has been updated in order to minimize patient exposure during imaging examinations. The Hill Medical Corporation has installed Dose Monitor™ through Strategic Radiology™ in order to track patient exposure by machine, exam protocol, site of service and technologist. All data will be aggregated on a national basis to identify opportunities for improvement.
