Image Wisely® is pleased to present the Image Wisely Radiation Safety Case, a series of online and mobile-compatible educational offerings for the imaging professional team. Radiation Safety Case content includes embedded questions that allow you to assess your understanding of important radiation safety concepts. Each question provides expert feedback as well as references and resources for further study.
Throughout the year, the IW Radiation Safety Case will offer similar short lessons on radiation safety topics, providing opportunities to expand your knowledge, reduce radiation dose to you and your patients, and earn continuing education credits as you do so. Continuing education credit for radiologists, imaging technologists and medical physicists is available after successfully completing a brief post-instruction quiz and evaluation survey.
