Resources Management / Gestione Delle Risorse

Abstract

With the aim of providing a clearer understanding of the tools used for evaluating risk in the radiological setting and how they are applied, this second part presents two practical examples. The first is a proactive analysis applied to CT, whereas the second is a reactive analysis performed following a sentinel event triggered by a CT study allocated to the wrong patient in the RIS-PACS system.

Gestione del rischio clinico in radiologia. Parte II: esempi applicativi e riflessioni conclusive

Riassunto

Al fine di una più chiara comprensione dell’applicazione delle modalità e degli strumenti di valutazione del rischio in ambito radiologico, in questa seconda parte vengono descritti due esempi pratici: il primo è costituito da un’analisi proattiva applicata alla procedura della TC, il secondo da un’analisi reattiva effettuata dopo un evento sentinella, scatenato da un’indagine TC erroneamente attribuita nel sistema RIS-PACS.
