Per Kara Gill:

  • Any outpatients < 18 yo of age who have a CT ordered should be flagged for specific review and protocol by the Community Radiologist.
  • As per ALARA, all imaging options not involving radiation should be explored first. If there is a persistent indication for CT or the reasoning by the ordering provider is unclear, then the Community Radiologist should discuss with the ordering provider.
  • If there are any persistent questions by the Community Rad, then a direct discussion with the pediatric Radiologist should take place.
