G Layer
The transformation of a European guideline (2013/59/Euratom) from 2013 into national law requires adaptation of the national statutory regulations. This year, all areas of protection from ionizing radiation will be subject to the new radiation protection law (StrlSchG). Through this, the German X‑ray and Radiation Protection Acts will be combined to form a higher level of authority. The main parts of the StrlSchG will receive a new classification and will be organized according to the exposure scenario: radiation protection in planned exposure scenarios, radiation protection in emergency exposure scenarios, radiation protection in existing exposure scenarios, and the regulation of overall exposure scenarios...

PURPOSE: Emergency radiology requires rapid and accurate interpretation of imaging examinations. Missed findings may lead to adverse outcomes. Double reporting may be used to minimize errors. Limited contemporaneous double reporting may be most efficient and cost-effective, but no data exists. This study is intended to examine the benefits of double reading and identify examinations where this would be most useful. METHODS: In this study, dual reporting was conducted in a parallel reading environment in a teleradiology practice for 3779 radiological procedures performed at two radiology centers in the USA over a period of 4 months...

INTRODUCTION: Radiology was founded on a technological discovery by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895. Teleradiology also had its roots in technology dating back to 1947 with the successful transmission of radiographic images through telephone lines. Diagnostic radiology has become the eye of medicine in terms of diagnosing and treating injury and disease. This article documents the empirical foundations of teleradiology. METHODS: A selective review of the credible literature during the past decade (2005-2015) was conducted, using robust research design and adequate sample size as criteria for inclusion...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Timely interpretation of computed tomography (CT) scans is of paramount importance in diagnosing and managing spinal column fractures, which can be devastating. Out-of-hospital, on-call spine surgeons are often asked to evaluate CT scans of patients who have sustained trauma to the thoracolumbar spine to make diagnosis and to determine the appropriate course of urgent treatment. Capturing radiographic scans and video clips from computer screens and sending them as instant messages have become common means of communication between physicians, aiding in triaging and transfer decision-making in orthopedic and neurosurgical emergencies...

The pre-grafting Tele-Radiological (TRE) evaluation of the Uterus Graft (UG) on Telemedicine Systems, in Uterus Transplant (UT) is studied by diagnostic sensitivity-specificity analysis based on simulation of TRE of the UG on 10 MR sets of female pelvic digital images by two radiologists, assessing a. The vascular variations of the grafts, and b. The inflammatory and neoplastic lesions of the UG. The pre-grafting TRE of the UG showed: a. Diagnostic unreliability for vascular variations, b. A high diagnostic reliability for inflammatory and neoplastic diseases of the UG (100%), making the MRI based TRE of the UG in UT, feasible and highly reliable for the remote pre-grafting diagnosis of UG pathologic lesions, but unreliable for integrated vascular anatomic and pathologic UG remote evaluation for pre-grafting and pre-transplant decision support and planning...
