On completion you will:

  • Understand the principles of dose optimisation and safety
  • Be confident that doses to both staff and patients are ALARP while ensuring optimum image quality for patient diagnosis and management
  •  Understand the hazards of radiation to patients and staff, including deterministic and stochastic effects, as well as background radiation and the relationship between dose and risk
  •  Learn how and why radiation dose is measured and recorded, how to calculate and estimate dose, and apply that to dose audits and reviews.

 

Digestible sessions, test questions throughout and an assessment at the end, awarding a CPD certificate

Illustrations, animations, live action, and recorded interviews, with narration providing clear explanation at every step.

"Easy to listen to, easy to use and easy to understand", Liz Benson, Clinical scientist, MPE, RPA
