By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

March 5, 2019 -- The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has launched a Spanish version of its CT radiation dose management course.

Originally available only in English, the five-hour course consists of 11 modules that cover various topics regarding best practices for CT, including the following:

  • Appropriate uses for CT
  • Methods for optimizing scanning protocols
  • Techniques for dose reduction
  • Radiation dose tracking

The course also provides overviews of referral guidelines, explanations of technical parameters for scanning, and specific CT protocols for people who are particularly vulnerable to radiation risk, such as children and pregnant patients. More than 2,000 individuals have taken the course since its introduction in 2017, according to the agency.

Participants who pass a brief exam upon conclusion of the course will receive a certificate of completion. Interested parties may register for the course online.
