Specifically FDA will address possible requirements for: (1) definition and standardization of CT terminology; (2) display of an index of patient radiation dose that could be automatically recorded within a facility quality assurance program; (3) automatic exposure control through modulation of x-ray tube output according to patient dimensions; and (4) limitation of the x-ray field size to that needed for image formation. In the afternoon, FDA will discuss proposed amendments to the U.S. performance standard for sunlamp products and certain initiatives of international standards organizations concerning sunlamp products.
