Fluoroscoping Imaging - Pause and Pulse Resources

BRAND NEW Educational Modules - Image Gently:  Enhancing Radiation Protection in Pediatric Fluoroscopy

This is a FREE and downloadable educational tool to provide radiologic technologists with a full understanding of the safe operation of fluoroscopic devices on pediatric patients to reduce radiation exposure and the knowledge to act as leaders in radiation protection for children. These instructional materials provide practice-based information and instructions that go well beyond that provided in the typical textbook, current literature or manufacturer training materials. In addition, the modules provide educational resources/references that may be used by secondary audiences such as radiology trainees, radiologists and medical imaging physicists.

The following links are for the modules in a video format with narration and Close Captioning.  There is a brief demographic form to complete and it will then direct you to the module:

Section I:  An Introduction to Image Gently:  Enhancing Radiation Protection in Pediatric Fluoroscopy

Section II:  Steps to Manage Radiation Dose During the Examination

Section III:  Steps to Manage Radiation Dose and Possible Tissue Effects after a Fluoroscopic Procedure
