Fauber, Ed.D, R.T.(R), of Richmond, Va., was awarded a research grant for nearly $10,000 for her study of high-kilovoltage digital exposure techniques and patient dosimetry. The Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, awards research grants of up to $10,000 twice yearly. The grants are available for registered medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals to initiate a research project related to the radiologic sciences for completion of a dissertation or in affiliation with an academic or clinical institution.Dr. Fauber is an associate professor and director of the radiography program at the Department of Radiation Sciences, School of Allied Health Professions at Virginia Commonwealth University. Her $9,982 grant from the Foundation will assist her in completing her study.“The ASRT is one of only a few organizations that values research at the technologist’s level,” said Dr. Fauber. “Grant funds provided by the ASRT allow me the opportunity to investigate an area of my interest ? digital imaging exposure techniques and patient radiation dose. Adequate funding is necessary to conduct quality research that will add to the profession’s knowledge base.”According to ASRT Director of Research John Culbertson, the study will provide specific information about shielding in relation to high-kilovolt digital exposure. “This research will be a significant contribution to the profession. Technologists are acutely aware of the importance of radiation safety in their workplace. It will improve radiation safety in the clinical area, along with improving patient radiation safety practices.”The deadline for applying for the spring 2009 research grant is Feb. 15. To be eligible for the grant:-Applications must be submitted by the principle investigator who is a current ASRT member.-The principle investigator also must be registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists or equivalent, or hold an unrestricted state license.-Areas of research that will be considered are related to radiation therapy, dosimetry or medical imaging. Proposals related to education and administration will also be considered.For more information: www.asrtfoundation.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | October 30, 2018 Elekta Introduces Strategy for Precision Radiation Medicine at ASTRO 2018 At the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting, Oct. 21-24 in San Antonio, Elekta introduced the… read more Henry Ford Hospital’s ViewRay MRIdian linear accelerator system allows real-time MRI-guided radiotherapy.
