The recent Webinar Wednesday presentation “Radiation Safety and Protection in Fluoroscopy – Utilizing RTI’s Piranha and Ocean Software QA Tool Measurements” was eligible for 1 credit from the ACI.
The 60-minute webinar featured Christiane Burton, Ph.D., diagnostic medical physics resident at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She focused on radiation safety and how she utilizes RTI’s Piranha and Ocean Software QA Tool Measurement tools to increase efficiencies in the X-ray room. She also discussed how to obtain the necessary measurements and walk out with automated reports so she can focus on other tasks. The webinar was sponsored by RTI Group.
The webinar was popular among healthcare technology management professionals with almost 200 individuals attending the live presentations. The webinar is available online where even more people are increasing their radiation safety and protection knowledge.
A post-webinar survey resulted in positive feedback and answers to the question “How will today’s webinar help you improve in your role?”
“[It] gave me a better understanding of the types and use of different X-ray machines,” shared L. Barton, biomedical equipment service specialist.
“This would be good for users or people new to the X-ray field. I have been doing this for 20 years, so this was more of a review than anything new,” explained J. Monnig, biomedical equipment service specialist.
“Enables me to understand the radiology role in regarding patient safety as well as the employee,” Biomed D. Tomczak said.
“Radiation safety is without a doubt one of the most serious concerns that all staff members in health care should be aware of. This is because being invisible with no immediate signs, whether accumulative or a possible overexposure, can pose serious health risks. We must educate ourselves how to limit exposure to patients as well as all staff members. Radiation safety is on the top of my list along with infection prevention,” said B. Hayes, CBET III.
“Reviewing dose and exposure concepts always help, especially listening to a physicist give me a great point of reference for the testing’s perception,” Technical Support Engineer M. Galeano said.
“As a radiology support engineer, this webinar broadened my knowledge base for radiation safety,” shared R. Harbick, BMET III.
