As part of FDA’s Initiative To Reduce Unnecessary Radiation Exposure From Medical Imaging , FDA has recommended that health care providers consider examinations that use little or no ionizing radiation exposure, such as ultrasound or MRI, if medically appropriate. Ultrasound imaging does introduce energy into the body, and laboratory studies have shown that diagnostic levels of ultrasound can produce physical effects in tissue, such as pressure oscillations with subsequent mechanical effects and rise in temperature. Therefore, FDA recommends that health care providers consider ways to minimize exposure while maintaining diagnostic quality when using ultrasound. As with all other imaging modalities, the principles of As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) should be practiced by health care providers.
Mr. Emanuele spearheaded the founding of one of the three major programs of the Fremont Education Foundation which is named after him. The Guy Emanuele Sports Fund provides grants for students who face economic need so that they can participate in after-school high school and junior high school sports in Fremont's Unified School District. The GESF also awards grants to elementary schools for the boys and girls basketball leagues. A memorial is scheduled from 4:30 to 6 . January 23 at Logan High School's Guy Emanuele Jr. Pavilion, 1800 H St., Union City.
