Radiology Continuing Education (CE) Courses
An interactive, online radiography in pediatric dose CE course that fulfills your ARRT ® radiology CE requirements
Optimizing Pediatric Radiation Dose Radiography CE Course
Radiography is the most common type of diagnostic imaging examination performed and represents 85% of all ionizing exposure in children. And because pediatric patients are up to 10 times more sensitive to ionizing radiation than adults, this course covers the basic principles of digital radiography (DR) and its advantages over analog film screening and computed radiography in reducing the pediatric patient dose. It also highlights the challenges presented in acquiring DR diagnostic images in the pediatric population, including proper immobilization, addressing family concerns, response to verbal direction, use of shielding, balancing ALARA, lead aprons and half shields, short exposure time, limited views, and close collimation.
In short, this online radiography CE course is intended to help radiologic technologists understand the quality principles used to ensure safe and appropriate use of DR in the pediatric population.
This online radiology CE course for X-ray techs is accredited by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) for 1 CE credit and is accepted for American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT ®) license renewal. It also meets the CE requirements for the states of California, Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and New Mexico.
This online radiography CE course consists of 1 module followed by a post-test, and provides you 1 Category A CE credit to fulfill your biennial 24 CE requirements and/or to complete your prescribed continuing education.
