Module: Basics of Radiation Protection

Module Description: Radiation protection is a basic yet serious consideration for all R.T.s. This refresher course begins with an introduction to cell radiosensitivity, which dictates how much radiation is absorbed (dose) and the cell’s response. Radiation exposure can create both short- and long-term effects varying in severity from mild nausea to cancer. Protecting your patients and yourself is a fundamental skill for all who administer radiation. Kelli Haynes, M.S.R.S., R.T. (R), discusses the biological aspects of radiation and how to minimize patient exposure, protect yourself and monitor your exposure.
