Project Director in the DOSE project (Dose Optimization for Stone Evaluation). DOSE aims to disseminate best practice in radiation dose optimization for renal colic CT via an online platform RAD IQ. Working alongside with leaders in the field of diagnostic imaging and the DIR (National Dose Index Register), DOSE aims to evaluate the effectiveness of education in low dose imaging as used in clinical practice. DOSE aims to not only provide dose optimization for renal colic patients, we aim to reduce the variability often seen in flank pain protocol.

Ultimately the DOSE project aims at engaging more than 100 facilities in education. In turn, this would ultimately prevent thousands of future malignancies, improve population health while maintaining the quality of acute care for renal colic.
