Practical Aspects of Radiation Safety

Many physicians and other healthcare specialists work around or with radiation sources, and therefore need education on the basics of radiation safety. This includes those physicians and specialists classified as radiation workers. However, the mere mention of “Radiation Safety” is usually associated with boredom and impractical physics equations. 

Practical Aspects of Radiation Safety is a painless, light-hearted short course designed for physicians, physician extenders, and other healthcare specialists who work in or around radiology, nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, and other departments where ionizing radiation is used in the healthcare environment. Specialists other than those in radiology and cardiology often work around ionizing radiation, including anesthesia, orthopedics, urology, endoscopy, and others. Practical Aspects of Radiation Safety presents easy to digest information on the risks of exposure to ionizing radiation and strategies for managing these risks. Practical Aspects of Radiation Safety can provide 1 hour of AMA PRA Category 2 Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit™.  This course covers:
