Radiation Safety Protocols for Fluoroscopy: Biological Effects of Radiation

  Mar 13th, 2020   -     1.0 CE Credit, Podcast   -  

X-rays have revolutionized medicine and enabled us to diagnose and help patients that would not have been possible without them. X-rays can cause acute harm, cancer and birth defects if not administered correctly and that is why practitioners must understand and manage patient dose and scattered radiation to insure overall safety. In this fourth episode of the 8-episode series Radiation Safety Protocols for Fluoroscopy we will talk about X-rays potential to do biological harm specifically what they do on a cellular level. Additionally discussed is when a cell is damaged how that damage can sometimes be repaired and the deterministic and stochastic effects of radiation on living cells.
