Lower Radiation

In 2009, Fairfax Radiological Consultants, P.C. (FRC) was one of the first radiology practices in the world to provide low dose CT scanning in all of their outpatient facilities performing CT services. To assure our patients receive the highest quality images at the lowest achievable radiation dose, FRC chose to implement a comprehensive CT Radiation Dose Reduction Initiative by utilizing:

  • New, state-of-the-art, low dose GE CT scanners at each of our CT imaging centers.
  • The newest software technology (ASIR) that reduces radiation dosage.
  • CT scanners that incorporate dose notifications and alerts as well as adjust the amount of radiation based on size, shape and body composition.
  • Highly trained technologists that utilize specific exam protocols that maximize image quality with the lowest radiation dose possible

Providing the highest quality CT scans in a safe environment is not an option...it is a necessity!

FRC will provide any needed consultation regarding CT scanning and radiation dose. For more information, call 703-788-8461 to speak directly to a knowledgeable, professional technologist who can answer questions and address any concerns relative to CT scanning.

By contacting us at this number before arriving for a scheduled CT exam, we can estimate anticipated radiation exposure prior to the procedure. You can also call after a CT has been performed to learn the actual dosage received from the exam
