‘We found the dosage was reduced by more than half whenever we used our protocol for assessing pulmonary embolism in pregnant or young sufferers,’ , said Dr. Litmanovich. The standard thoracic CT and the pulmonary embolism protocols also resulted in the highest radiation dosages to the lung, Dr. Litmanovich said. The lung received the highest organ dosage of the protocol regardless, while pelvic radiation was low of the protocol regardless, she said. ‘Despite efforts to reduce radiation dose, irradiation of the breast and lung remain substantial,’ said Dr.How do these numbers compare abroad? The Americans, as you’ll anticipate, have many energetic centres. But around the global world, there is gradual progression in the growth. For example, the 1st in Norway started a couple of months ago, which is the 1st in Scandinavia but there's another four or five sites in Scandinavia that are about to begin. There are four centres in Spain, there's a few centres in France, seven in Germany, 9 in Italy, a single in the Czech Republic, one in Switzerland, seven in Belgium who now are all active. But European countries and USA aren’t the just geographies with BT, SOUTH USA has been operating centres in Brazil and Argentina also, there are also operating centres in Asia and we are just starting to open centres in Japan.
