DIR Dose Information by Exam
Modified on: Tue, 24 Oct, 2017 at 2:43 PM
The Dose Information by Exam report lists detailed information about the origin of the exam provided by the scanner. This report provides the total CTDIvol and Dose Length Product (DLP) in series per exam. You can also see CTDIvol and DLP for each series as separate values by using the Summary of Irradiation Events report.
All users may view this report.
To view the report, click Dose Information by Exam under the Reports menu.
The report filter allows you to refine the search by submission date. The DIR Facility Number and Facility Name are automatically filled and cannot be changed.
You can narrow the totals in the report by entering one or both dates in the Submit Date Range fields. If you leave both date fields blank, the report will include all exams and series for your facility. We suggest using a date range of at least three months so that you can review what your CT scanners have been sending since the last quarterly aggregate report.
To run the report, click the Submit button. The report appears in a new window.
When reviewing the report, check to make certain there are data submitted for each field. You can use the Export to Excel button to work with the report data in MS Excel so that you can sort and check for missing data elements. You should also verify the names of your exams appear in the Study column. If the Study column is missing for more than 5% of records for a single scanner, or if an entire CT scanner’s exams are missing, please contact us at TRIAD-Support@acr.org so we can help diagnose possible data transmission issues.
