Perhaps the most important tasks in the radiographer’s job description are to ensure the welfare of the patient and oneself. An essential component of this task for the radiographer is keeping radiation exposure as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) given the clinical indications and conditions. This course reviews the biologic effects of ionizing radiation; basic technological elements in photostimulable phosphor systems, charge-coupled devices, and complementary metal oxide semi-conductor systems as well as digital detectors and the digital image acquisition chain; and radiation protection principles essential to the digital imaging process. Concepts such as the types and interactions of radiation with matter, radiation exposure models, elements and characteristics of a digital image, exposure selection for pediatric patients, and the justification and optimization of radiation dose are discussed. The course highlights ALARA principles throughout the universal digital imaging process.
This course is based on the book Digital Radiation Safety, 2nd Edition by Jeana Fleitz, M.Ed., RT(R)(M)(ARRT)™. The book/PDF is 119 pages long and 8.5 x 11 inches in size. This book has 12 pt font and 1.5 line spacing.
The test has 48 multiple choice and true/false questions.
