Course Curriculum
Patient exposure to radiation has doubled in twenty years, with patients potentially undergoing multiple studies and scans over their lifetime. In response, the FDA has undertaken an initiative to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure from medical imaging using the principle of As Low As Reasonably Achievable,” (ALARA). Following this principle, CMS requirements discusses safety precautions a hospital should do to decrease radiation exposure. This program will cover all the hospital radiology and nuclear medicine standards requires for hospitals from CMS, including 41 pages of changes that were enacted in 2015. Every hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid must be in compliance with these regulations and interpretive guidelines.
