Educational Modules - Image Gently: Enhancing Radiation Protection in Pediatric Fluoroscopy
This is a FREE and downloadable educational tool to provide radiologic technologists with a full understanding of the safe operation of fluoroscopic devices on pediatric patients to reduce radiation exposure and the knowledge to act as leaders in radiation protection for children. These instructional materials provide practice-based information and instructions that go well beyond that provided in the typical textbook, current literature or manufacturer training materials. In addition, the modules provide educational resources/references that may be used by secondary audiences such as radiology trainees, radiologists and medical imaging physicists.
Radiologists and Radiology Technologists, earn FREE CE credit - it is easy for a radiologic technologist to earn category A credit after successfully viewing all three of the modules and completing the quiz for these courses. To take the quiz that is for all three courses, click here to go to the courses in the ASRT Store and follow the checkout instructions to add the courses and quiz to your personal learning area for free.
