Radiation Medical Events
For the purposes of this reporting system, the Conference
of Radiation Program Directors (CRCPD) has defined the following reporting
criteria for a Radiation Medical Event.
A medical event indicates that a facility had technical or quality
assurance problems in administering the physician’s orders.
There is no scientific basis to conclude that such a medical event
necessarily results in harm to the patient
These events indicate a potential problem in a medical facility’s use of
radiation. Radiation Medical Events
are separated into two sources: Therapy and Diagnostic. (more>>)
