Automatic detection of repeated scans in clinical practice and their effect on wasted resources

Anna Romanyukha, PhD, Scientific Liason, Qaelum Nevada

Anna Romanyukha received her Ph.D. degree in medical physics from the Centre of Medical Radiation Physics (UOW, Australia) and her M.Sc. degree in health physics from Georgetown University (Washington DC, USA). She worked as a post baccalaureate and pre doctoral fellow at the National Cancer Institute (NIH, Washington DC) on various projects including radiation dose estimation from diagnostic exposures. She now works in Qaelum Nevada, focusing on advanced software tools in patient radiation dose management and quality. In her presentation, Anna will discuss repeated scans and deviations from normal practice, including how unnecessarily repeated scans affect resources including time, appointment slots, patient radiation exposure, and their environmental impact.
