Public Workshop - Device Improvements for Pediatric X-ray Imaging, July 16, 2012
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public Workshop on "Device Improvements for Pediatric X-ray Imaging."
The main purpose of the workshop is to discuss the draft guidance "Pediatric Information for X-ray Imaging Device Premarket Notifications."
This guidance will apply to x-ray computed tomography, general and dental radiography, and diagnostic and interventional fluoroscopy devices. The guidance document was released in draft form for public comment on May 10, 2012. A Notice was published in the Federal Register on this same date for an open comment period for the guidance document that runs through September 6, 2012.
In addition to soliciting public feedback on the draft guidance, the FDA has organized this meeting to help identify issues relevant to radiation safety in pediatric x-ray imaging that may benefit from standards development or further research.
