Vendor Specific CT Dose Education Slides - Vendor Specific CT Dose Education Slides added to the CT Protocols Page. Documents contain information on how CT acquisition parameters and CT scanner features affect the radiation dose used for a given study and how the dose is reported and tracked. These slides are intended for educational purposes and may be distributed freely with proper acknowledgement ("Courtesy of the AAPM Working Group on CT Nomenclature and Protocols"). View Slides.

The AAPM is a scientific and professional organization, founded in 1958, composed of more than 8000 scientists whose clinical practice is dedicated to ensuring accuracy, safety and quality in the use of radiation in medical procedures such as medical imaging and radiation therapy. We are generally known as medical physicists and are uniquely positioned across medical specialties due to our responsibility to connect the physician to the patient through the use of radiation producing technology in both diagnosing and treating people. The responsibility of the medical physicist is to assure that the radiation prescribed in imaging and radiation therapy is delivered accurately and safely.

One of the primary goals of the AAPM is the identification and implementation of improvements in patient safety for the medical use of radiation in imaging and radiation therapy.
