WHAT is the Course about

This two day course will help keep you current with the radiation safety aspects of the many new techniques related to using X-ray machines for the healing arts in the continually evolving medical field.  It will help you to gain a practical understanding of the safe use of radiation-emitting machines including Fluoroscopic and PET/CT units.  It also  includes a review of applicable state regulations pertaining to the installation, registration, and maintenance of  X-ray machines. Sessions include developing and managing personnel radiation dose monitoring and training programs.

In addition, Accreditation will be discussed along with imaging techniques to reduce dose.  Most state in the US requires the registration of medical use X-ray machines and the facility housing those machines before they can be used. On the application for registration, ,these states require the name of the person responsible for radiation safety at the facility. This course is designed to provide you with the knowledge needed to be named as that person.
