NY Times Article and iCAT Users

You have all been made aware of this article and the Imaging Sciences response by now. We had a patient call our office the day after this article came out with questions about his scan. We have had several more since then. We are in the process of drafting a response for all of our staff, receptionists and technicians, to use when patients question the cone beam scans.

How do you handle patient radiation concerns in your office? Do you have a standardized response that all of your staff uses? Do you have a handout for your patients to answer their radiation concerns?
