RADIATION SAFETY

.

The Cross Radiology aims to produce the best imaging possible with the lowest dose of Radiation. We follow a strict radiation safety management plan that helps to ensure the radiation dose to users, other persons involved in the practice, members of the public and environment are below the prescribed limits and are as low as reasonably achievable. It also helps to ensure that the number of people exposed to radiation and the likelihood of unexpected exposure to radiation are minimised.

Our management plan includes but does not limit to:

- Regular compliance checks and servicing of all radiographic equipment
- In-house radiation safety awareness training for ALL staff
- Avoidance of unnecessary radiographs
- Patient and procedure verification
- Continual review of safety protocols
