Description

Radiology Continuing Education (CE) Credits Course

For many years, X-rays were used for imaging different organs of the human body using different methods of positioning and variable technical factors. This radiology CE course helps radiologic technologists understand the different steps to obtain accurate, consistent images according to body type, the abdominopelvic anatomy, and the pathologies that may affect the quality of the image.
Knowing that there are four body habitus and that anatomy differs from one type to another, this course presents the technical modifications that radiographers shall apply to avoid any unexpected error caused by the anatomy of the patient. In addition, our radiology CE course describes the abdominopelvic image details that shall be clarified, allowing physicians to diagnose the cases of different patients.
This Radiology CE course also describes the best patient position to reduce magnification, as well as the high voltage and the exposure time product required to obtain better images of the abdomen and pelvis. Finally, the course defines the stochastic and non-stochastic effects of radiation, helps to organize the procedures to carry out physician orders, and describes how to use shielding appropriately during imaging to reduce the patient’s exposure to radiation.
