Fluoroscopic Radiation Safety: Online Module

The goal of this online module is to provide participants with the information needed to safely and effectively minimize radiation doses to patients, prevent the possibility of acute radiation injuries, maintain both an actual and perceived safe working environment, and comply with state and federal limits on employees and the general public. Any Swedish physician or medical staff member who works with fluoroscopic radiation must pass a fluoroscopic radiation safety quiz before working with such materials.  Providers at other institutes may also take this training if it fits their education needs.  This module is complimentary for Swedish, Providence and Radia providers only. Please see the "Fees" tab below for more information.
