Course Description

Radiation exposure to pediatric patients is of high importance for the safety of the patients. As a result, raising awareness of how to decrease radiation dose, while simultaneously maintaining diagnostic image quality is essential. The campaign created by Image Gently promotes radiation dose awareness to maintain diagnostic imaging quality when radiographing pediatric patients. Current initiatives stress methods for standardizing imaging approaches to pediatric digital radiology. This course will present 10 strategies radiology technologists can take to decrease exposure rates to children when using digital radiology.

This activity may be available in multiple formats or from different sponsors. A self-learning activity can be completed only once per biennium. ARRT® CE Requirements
