The DIR participants can benchmark dose indices performance data against regional and national values using quarterly PDF and interactive reports. The interactive reports’ extensive filters can pinpoint outlier exams and identify performance patterns for further investigation to ensure high-quality exam performance and patient care.
DIR-CT dose indices reports have been available since 2011 and reports are now available for DIR Fluoroscopy for interventional procedures. Work is underway on fluoroscopy for diagnostic procedures, digital radiography and nuclear medicine dose indices reports. The DIR automatically de-identifies exam and procedure data sent directly to the registry with modality-specific dose information.
