The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has issued an Intent to Revise the Standard and is therefore postponing the official effective dates (December 1, 2019) of the revised and and the new general chapter until further notice. The official notice can be viewed here.MORE❯
Greetings!! MPC recently concluded its summer meeting and annual company picnic. As a growing company (43 employees and counting!!!) this was one of the largest turnouts for our picnic we have ever had. A lot of good topics (including where we are going with our website and E-learning courses) were discussed over the three or […]MORE❯
Earlier this year, the AAPM issued a position statement on the use of patient gonadal and fetal shielding during diagnostic imaging exams utilizing radiation and as the international society has thought for years it appears it is time to reconsider the efficacy of this practice. An excellent article outlining the history, benefit (little or zero) […]MORE❯
In August of 2011, The Joint Commission (TJC) issued Sentinel Event Alert #47, titled Radiation Risks of Diagnostic Imaging. Last month an update to this alert was issued to specifically include fluoroscopy and to more clearly define a patient safety program. The core of this alert remains the same; however, this revision makes it clear […]MORE❯
Recently the Joint Commission approved revisions to their standards for organizations providing fluoroscopy services which will become effective January 1, 2019. We knew this was coming and now you might be wondering how the new requirements will affect your operations. Read on to find out! At least annually, hospitals providing fluoroscopic services will be […]MORE❯
“The Joint Commission is working to revise its standards to better address risks related to the provision of fluoroscopy in the Ambulatory Care, Critical Access Hospital, Hospital, and Office-Based Surgery accreditation programs. The proposed standards can be reviewed and commented upon until April 20, 2018. Submitting comments is easy and available in three different formats; you […]MORE❯
You may have recently received an email from Cardinal Health regarding the FDG settings on your Capintec dose calibrator. The gist of the email was to remind customers of a 2009 revision to published calibration factors for F-18 utilizing Capintec dose calibrators. If you have purchased a new dose calibrator since 2009 from Capintec (models that […]MORE❯
Maybe last year you heard something from your MQSA inspector about EQUIP: Enhancing Quality Using the Inspection Program and quickly tuned out because he or she mentioned that while they were telling you about this requirement now, they would not be holding you to it until 2018. Well, here we are, 2018!! And we at […]MORE❯
Confused about patient CT dose limits in Michigan? We hope the information in this post will help clarify the newly established Michigan Diagnostic Reference Level guidelines. Earlier this year, the Michigan Radiation Safety Section updated guidance on patient CT radiation exposure levels. They have moved from a “Standard of Care” limit guideline to a “Diagnostic […]MORE❯
Recently, the ACR updated their clinical MRI scan requirements (adding some studies and removing others) as well as simplifying the on-line clinical data forms. The ACR no longer asks for the reconstructed and displayed matrix parameters and now only needs the acquisition matrix (in the frequency and phase directions) and display FoV. This is the […]MORE❯
We have been using the services of MPC for years and appreciate the extra care and effort they provide to ensure our equipment is safe and meets the standards for quality to operate legally. The physicists are knowledgeable and approachable. They have a genuine concern for our success and compliance with governing regulations.
I really enjoyed the Radiation Safety Officer Course and appreciate all of the hospitality that was extended to me by the MPC staff!
