Alaska Fluoroscopy Regulations for Radiation Control
Our Fluoroscopy CME courses for satisfying Alaska fluoroscopy regulations work!
A study published in Academic Radiology showed that patient dose decreased after radiology residents took our Advanced Training Program. More details are available here.
Per Chapter 18 of Title 7 of the Alaska Administrative Code (7 AAC 18), Alaska requires fluoroscopy-specific training for all operators of medical fluoroscopes. Completion of our Combination Course satisfies the requirement of Alaska 7 AAC 18.
