Maximizing benefit and minimizing risk in CT
Our Joint Commission CT radiation risk training is the only course on the market written entirely by radiologists and medical physicists for physicians who order CT scans. Through interactive videos, animations and case studies, we will describe everything you need to know about balancing benefit and risk on a patient-by-patient basis when you order a scan!
Written by radiologists and medical physicists, Maximizing Benefit While Minimizing Risk in Computed Tomography (CT) is designed specifically for physicians who order CT scans for their patients. As you’ve come to expect from FluoroSafety, the course is interactive and image rich, filled with videos, animations, and case studies. The course reviews basic concepts in radiation biology and CT physics, and focuses on the development of a detailed benefit/risk based decision making strategy necessary for any physician who orders CT imaging. Learners successfully completing this course may claim up to 2.25 hours of Category 1 CME credit. This course also qualifies for MOC credit for most ABMS member boards, including the ABIM, ABR, ABS, ABPMR, ABA. and ABP. This course also meets the education requirements of Joint Commission standards EC.02.04.03 and HR.01.05.03 for CT.
