RPN safety analysis to reduce the risk of malpractices in high dose rate brachytherapy

Risultato della ricerca: Other

Abstract

A new fuzzy rule-based assessment model is proposed to evaluate the risk priority number in the Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) method to rank component failures and human errors from the medical staff, leading to potential radiological over-exposure of patients during high-dose-rate brachytherapy treatment. The obtained results are relevant for a range of causes that have a reasonable probability of producing significant adverse outcomes. Thus, recommendations are provided for proceduresand safety devices to reduce the occurrence of radiological over-exposure accidents. This method can solve the problems in conventional FMECA applications and improve the safety and quality process of radiological treatments, or of other applications in healthcare field.
