Comments from physicians who have taken our Advanced Training Program:

“The suggestions for reducing dose to pregnant patients were very helpful.  Exactly what to do to maximally reduce dose to pregnant patients has always been a mystery to me before this course.”
Sunil Aggarwal, MD

“This course was much better than I had initially expected.  This will be very helpful for improving the safety of my patients.”
William Snyder, MD
 

“I thought I was being careful, however, I have learned many new concepts that I will now be able to apply to reduce dose and I think patients will ultimately benefit.”
John Ryder, MD

“I was increasing magnification instead of collimating because I thought that the dose to the patient was the same.   Now I understand that there is a major physical difference and the patient dose is much higher when magnification is increased.“
Erin Rogers, MD

“I now understand the importance of patient positioning, and how it can affect dose. I am sure the techniques I have learned will reduce exposure to my patients.”
Eric Liaw, MD

“The thickness of a patient is a big deal.  I never before understood the relationship between patient size and radiation dose.”
Michael Jones, MD

“Really helped make me more aware of the need to constantly be aware of radiation dose and to always try to reduce it.  I thoroughly enjoyed this course.”
Ryan Davis, MD

“Fair, comprehensive and informative.  I cannot think of any changes you can make to improve this course.  It flowed smoothly and the animations, graphics and videos were particularly descriptive.”
Nicholas Solodov, MD
