Infection Control in Radiology is a continuing education course that addresses infection control as it applies to radiologic technologists. Infection control refers to the policies and practices used by hospitals and other healthcare facilities to control and minimize the spread of infections. This is achieved through the implementation of control programs, which include surveillance, isolation, outbreak management, environmental hygiene, employee health, education, and infection prevention policies, and infection management.

Radiologic technologists are very often exposed to different infectious patients. For this reason, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) set guidelines for the proper use of personal protective equipment and decontamination of reusable medical equipment. To help technologists with adhering to these guidelines, this course reviews proper hand hygiene, including hand-washing and hand-rubbing techniques, as well as isolation and infection control procedures.

In addition, Infection Control in Radiology covers the role of the radiologic technologist in preventing the transmission of infectious disease processes in healthcare units and highlights the importance of policies and procedures detailing occupational exposure management when a technologist has been infected accidentally.
