Annual Training to meet the Joint Commission (TJC) Fluoroscopy Standards

California Fluoroscopy Supervisor and Operator Permit Article


We offer training courses specifically to meet Joint Commission fluoroscopy standards (HR.01.05.03) include training on Image Gently and Step Lightly

The Joint Commission environment of care (EC.02.04.03 and HR.01.05.03) has proposed fluoroscopy standards which necessitate ongoing education and annual training for individuals use fluoroscopic equipment (HR.01.05.03). Training must include:

  • Safe procedures for the operation of the type of Fluoroscopy equipment used
  • Specific training on the dose reduction techniques addressed in the Image Gently®, Image Gently-Step Lightly®, and Image Wisely® campaigns
  • Minimize risks associated with selecting and using Fluoroscopy
  • Ensure proper dosimetry and monitoring of workers in Fluoroscopy
  • Assess radiation levels from Fluoroscopy, assuring they are ALARA

FluoroSafety’s Annual Training for Individuals who Use Fluoroscopic Equipment is a 2 hour CME course designed to meet the requirement for ongoing education and annual training for individuals who use fluoroscopic equipment as outlined in Joint Commission Standard HR.01.05.03. In addition to CME, you can also qualify for MOC credit for many medical boards including ABIM, ABA, ABR, ABS and more.

This course is designed to be used as ongoing annual training for users of fluoroscopy. As such, this course does not cover many concepts that are necessary for developing a comprehensive knowledge on the safe use of fluoroscopy. Those seeking initial training on the safe use of fluoroscopy should instead complete the Basic Training Program on the Safe Use of Fluoroscopy or the Advanced Training Program on the Safe Use of Fluoroscopy from FluoroSafety. Please see our Joint Commission initial training page for more details.

Annual Training for Individuals who Use Fluoroscopic Equipment will be available at the end of August 2018. Please direct any questions to sales@fluorosafety.com
