Get some face-to-face time with radiology residents and fellows you've conversed with on Twitter at this IRL (in real life) networking event for trainees. The Tweet Up will be held in the Discovery Center from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Question of the Day:

I want to buy a new mammography unit, but it has a tungsten target. Don't I need the characteristic x-rays from Molybdenum to have the optimal energy range for breast imaging?

Tip of the day:

Dose alerts are set for equipment as a complete unit. This means it may help prevent overdosing a patient, but it also means that the alert may kick in during a high-dose procedure like CT-fluoroscopy and interrupt imaging. Always make sure someone in the room has the password to override when performing high dose procedures on dose alert enabled equipment.
