Radiographer of the Year

We’ve got a winner! The ISRRT DoseWise Radiographer of the year for 2016 is…

IM Seyoung, winner of DRoTY 2016, is currently a Radiological Technologist at the Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, South Korea.

His case demonstrates the potential dose management opportunities for both patient and operator during the transcatheter closure of an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) in adults, after a change in the cine-fluoroscopy rate. In this retrospective study, IM Seyoung tested his hypothesis that a change in the cine-fluoroscopy rate from 15 frames/sec to 7.5 frames/sec should indicate a benefit in absorbed dose for the both lenses and thyroid without procedural difficulty.

Unfortunately IM Seyoung is unable to attend RSNA to present his winning case in person. Please enjoy a review of the case as it is presented here.

You hold the knowledge… share it


The date for case submission has past – this year’s contest is now closed. A winner will be announced shortly.

To recognize the ongoing efforts of radiographers and to promote radiation dose management awareness around the world, Philips and ISRRT host the annual “DoseWise Radiographer of the Year”. This contest offers an opportunity for radiographers to present best practices and share critical knowledge. 

A panel of experts from ISRRT is currently judging this year’s submissions to select the imaging case that best demonstrates exceptional dose management practice.

We’ve received some excellent and innovative cases, which (upon review) we will post here as best practice examples. By sharing knowledge everyone working in the field of radiology benefits – you, your patients, your staff, and your institution.

DoseWise is a Philips radiology philosophy consisting of educational tools, protocols, software, and hardware and is part of our ALARA thinking.
