MITA releases XR-29 standard for CT dose

The Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance (MITA) has approved a new dose-related standard: XR-29 "Standard Attributes on Computed Tomography (CT) Equipment Related to Dose Optimization and Management."

The standard, also known as MITA Smart Dose, includes four key features of CT equipment that enable optimization or management of radiation dose delivery while also providing high-quality medical images, according to MITA. These include DICOM dose structured reporting, CT dose check, automated exposure controls (AEC), and pediatric and adult reference protocols.

XR-29 is the fourth dose-related standard to be released by MITA since 2010.
