Image Wisely recently launched its first Image Wisely Radiation Safety Case‚ a series of free, online educational offerings. Developed with the American College of Radiology, the series allows radiologists, imaging technologists, and medical physicists to assess their own understanding of radiation safety concepts such as radiation dose monitoring and optimization.
The first case, CT Dose and Size-Specific Dose Estimate (SSDE), offers a total of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits; 0.5 MPCEC credit by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs Inc; and 0.5 Category A credit hours of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
A total of six radiation safety cases will be presented throughout the year. Case content includes embedded questions that provide expert feedback as well as references and resources for further study. Participants must successfully complete a brief post-instruction quiz and evaluation survey to receive credit.
Image Wisely is an initiative of the American College of Radiology, the Radiological Society of North America, the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.
