Medical Radiation Safety Officer (MRSO) Training

Description
This course is designed for those managing a radiation safety program or working with radioactive material and/or radiation-producing machines in a medical environment. The course content can be viewed an unlimited number of times at any time of day. From the date of registration, the student has six months to complete the course. Course quizzes may only be taken once per 24 hour period.

Objectives
This course will assist you with staying current with the radiation safety aspects of the many new techniques related to using ionizing radiation in the continually evolving medical field. It will help you gain a practical understanding of regulations governing the safe use of radiation-emitting machines and radioactive materials, as well as responsibilities for managing radiation safety in a hospital. In addition, you will learn you how to implement a successful, compliant radiation safety program that will withstand rigorous inspection.

Continued Education Credits
Upon successful completion of this course, 22 CEC credits will be awarded by the American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP).

Fluoroscopy (available in 2, 4 and 10-hour options)

Description
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses x-rays to obtain real-time images used to guide procedures in the medical setting. Training for this technnique is important for oerpators and a requirement in several states. Our courses are designed to met these requirements. These courses were designed by board certified Imaging Physicists. Additionally, physicists are availabel to answer questions that you may have while taking this on-line training.  Topics for these presentations include the optimization of techniques for better images while lowering dose, patient and staff protection, dose quantities, biological effects and safety culture. Course quizzes may only be taken once per 24 hour period.

Course Requirements
1. Complete all of the chapter lectures associated with each module

2. Complete the chapter quiz at the end of each chapter. 80% or higher on each chapter quiz must be achieved for successful completion

3. Complete the course evaluation at the end of the last module Please note: you must successfully complete each module before the subsequent module is available to you.
