L149: What about operators in this list?
L185: Not always physicians but other licensed healthcare providers such as PAs (e.g. L238 as well)
L229: “Document lesion” not always. For example, in line placement there is no lesion. “Both normal and abnormal conditions and outcome of diagnosis or treatment” consider as substitute.
L244-248: Long, redundant (e.g. effectiveness and what comes subsequently)
L318: Not using assigned dosimetry
L338: Use of lead best for describing aprons? Since the other materials: should apron be substituted for by radioprotective garment?
L382: All professionals: Why use this term? Why not all staff/operators?
L389: Increased protection by increase (add) distance
L393: Is mSv correct unit for conceptus dose?
L424: What if medical physicists is responsible for creating and maintaining? As stated, says “or” rather than “and”. And what is role of PhD radiographer (i.e. European model)
L487: Fluoroscopy intervention mentioned but CT intervention excluded.
L503: Mentioned dental: How much of this is relevant to the document? e.g. Image guided dental procedures? This doesn’t seem to come up again so consider eliminating.
L504: Diagnosis, surveillance and treatment (add surveillance).
L591: “By employer” redundant since say “employed” earlier
L596: “open” surgery? Is this a standard and understood term? Is there “closed surgery”?
L634: Misplaced modifier “their”; say “these interventions” for “their”.
L700-06: Only talk about “external” ionizing radiation but mentioned SIRT above
L768: CT also used for spine work (e.g. pain control)
L864: When used “ED received” implies that they get this rather than exposed to or subject to…please clarify
L892: Anesthetists/anesthesiologist “clarify terminology, e.g. CRNA in definition.
L1294: “alters the radiation exposure”: what does this mean? Increasing or providing exposure?
L1725-28: Smaller font was used. Please correct.
L2074: Section 5.1 Current wording: All professionals in the room should wear protective aprons;
Suggested change: All professionals in the room should wear wrap-around protective aprons;Reasoning: most staff in an IR environment are moving throughout the whole procedure and are not always facing the patient/x-ray tube during fluoro time; wrap-around aprons are fairly standard these days to maximize effectiveness for staff safety around
L2103: This goes without saying. One should be familiar with this already. Consider changing to something such as “familiarity should include both patient and occupational dose management”
L2116: Consider adding http://www.imaging.onlinejacc.org/content/early/2017/05/02/j.jcmg.2017.04.003 as a reference (is open source)
L2227: All interventional radiology lead then?
L 2340: Section 5.6.1
Current wording: glasses can be quantified in terms of DRFs
Suggested change: glasses can be quantified in terms of dose reduction factor (DRF)
Reasoning: DRF was originally defined in section 4.4.3 line 1996, but should be redefined here (section 5) so readers can read each section independently.
L2752: Incident versus accident difference? Need clarification
