Radiation safety

Safeguarding your health

We understand that you may be concerned about radiation exposure during an imaging exam. That’s why all Novant Health UVA Health System imaging facilities follow well-established practices and guidelines to ensure that you receive the lowest appropriate radiation dose. We also work closely with the companies that supply our imaging equipment to ensure we have the most advanced processes in place to safeguard your health.

Our radiation safety officer regularly reviews and revises all imaging procedures and equipment specifications to achieve the lowest possible dose for each exam. We also have a team of physicians dedicated to maximizing radiation safety. Our technologists are trained in effective radiation safety practices and work to develop customized radiation plans to fit your individualized treatment needs.
