Description

In Module 3 we will look at the application of the principles learned in Modules 1 and 2 to patient imaging. Module 3 also examines dose during fluoroscopy, regulations covering fluoroscopy, and special patient considerations, including fluoroscopy of pregnant patients and pediatric patients. A thorough understanding of the concepts presented in Module 3 will help you optimize the use of fluoroscopy in your practice.

The following topics will be covered in Module 3:
- Factors affecting patient dose
- Advanced techniques to reduce dose
- Special considerations: Pregnant patients & Pediatric patients.
- Dose in fluoroscopy
- Skin injuries in fluoroscopy
- Regulations concerning fluoroscopy
- Fluoroscopy contrast agents

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Demonstrate knowledge of basic radiation and fluoroscopic physics (knowledge)

2. Apply dose reduction techniques to reduce patient doses (competence, performance)

3. Utilize knowledge of radiation biology to identify potential cases of radiation-induced skin changes and appropriately manage patients (knowledge, competence, performance)

4. Incorporate knowledge of dose metrics to recognize cases where injury potential exists and prevent such injuries (knowledge, competence, performance)

5. Practice good radiation safety habits based on knowledge acquired (knowledge, competence, performance)
