Starting July 10, 2022, the accreditation body will be changed to ASRT and the number of credits will be 5.25 CE credits.

Our Radiation Protection in Radiology course is designed to educate both healthcare staff and patients about the nature of radiation and radiation safety. It provides training to radiology staff in issues related to patient protection against radiation and introduces international standards related to radiation safety. The course covers a variety of topics in radiation protection and safety, including how ionizing radiation interacts with matter, an overview of cell biology, radiobiology, and patient and occupational protection practices. The course also addresses radiation monitoring and detection, important regulatory agencies, and radiation protection practices in CT.
