The objective of this work is to analyse the weaknesses of the radiation monitoring systems (RMS) that are being used today, and to evaluate howBusiness Intelligence(BI) software will introduce new strategies to solve them.
RMS that continuously measureradiationin radiology departments are essential to ensuresafetyand satisfy regulatory requirements. For this purpose, radiology equipment send all the data related to each imaging study to RMS. Accurate and appropriate processing of this data is the keyto success in the control and management of the medical radiation....
Description of activity and work performed
Business intelligence(BI) refers to applications and practices for the collection, integration, analysis, and presentation of business information. The aim of these software is to allow the user for the easy interpretation of a large quantity of data which leads to a better decision making.
However, these kind of software can be also used for the analysis of medical radiation data. Consequently, we propose to use a BI application as a revolutionary new solution for currently RMS limitations.
1. First step: data extraction
Firstly, these systems...
Conclusion and recommendations
The current RMS show some limitations in the visualization, filtering, and analysis of the radiation data obtained by radiology equipment. New BI programs will overcome these problems and they will be essential to supply data to AI software.
